July 13, 2014 – FC Edmonton vs Ottawa Fury FC – Preview
The Fury FC have added a new keeper and a CB over the summer break, while two CMs have left the club. While there may still yet be some roster movement, the NASL Fall Season opener kicks off on Sunday right after the FIFA World Cup final, with an away derby against FC Edmonton.
The 1-0 injury-time victory over Edmonton in the last home game of the Spring Season is still very fresh in the minds of many Fury FC supporters, with Tom Heinemann making a fantastic comeback after his layoff from injury. He will be available for contention in the starting XI, though Nicki Paterson is still recovering from his spring season injury.
FC Edmonton went 3-0-0 in their friendlies during the summer, including a victory over the Seattle Sounders and a win against Victoria Highlanders FC of USL PDL. They have added Cristian Raudales, a CM, to their ranks over the past week.
A NASL Canadian derby right after the WC Final, it should be a good day of football on Sunday! Here are some match and fall season previews below, including one that I co-authored with Stuart Mactaggart on RedNation Online, where we will be contributing match previews and reviews throughout the fall season!
Also, be sure to check out the news from CSN on a huge development in the Canadian club soccer scene, with partnership between NASL, CFL and CSA. We may very well be looking at a “Canadian League” or a “Canada Conference” within the NASL in a couple years time!
