If New York City FC is eliminated from the MLS playoffs, at least one player won’t be hanging up his soccer boots for the season.
Center back Maxime Chanot has been called into the Luxembourg national team for two UEFA Nations League games this month.
Chanot, a key component of the NYCFC backline, will have the opportunity to play at home against Belarus Nov. 15 and in Moldava Nov. 18.
NYCFC will visit Atlanta United for the second leg of their Eastern Conference semifinal series Sunday at 5 p.m. City needs a 1-0 result to force at least extratime and at least a shootout. Any other win would boost NYCFC to victory and into the conference final.
City dropped a 1-0 home decision to Atlanta Sunday in the first leg of the aggregate-goals series.
