New York Red Bulls vs. Vancouver Whitecaps: Live Match Thread & Champions League Chat

Follow Lindpere.

So, is there football after Manchester United vs. Barcelona? I'd say yes, but you fine folks are welcome to use this thread for the little warm-up game to the New York Red Bulls' visit to the Vancouver Whitecaps later this afternoon. It is a massive game for New York, made much more important as a result of Philadelphia's destruction of Toronto FC, which moves them three points ahead of the Red Bulls and into first in the Eastern Conference.

To recap the team news: Thierry Henry, Chris Albright, and Carl Robinson are out due to injuries, while Dane Richards and Rafael Márquez have already departed for duty with their respective national teams ahead of the Gold Cup.

Lineups

Red Bulls: Greg Sutton, Carlos Mendes, Stephen Keel, Tim Ream, Roy Miller; Jan Gunnar Solli, Joel Lindpere, Teemu Tainio, Dwayne De Rosario; Juan Agudelo, Luke Rodgers

Solli moves up into midfield, with Mendes at right back and Keel in the middle.

Subs: Bouna Coundoul, Teddy Schneider, Tyler Lassiter, Matt Kassel, John Rooney, Austin da Luz, Corey Hertzog

The average age of the Red Bulls' bench is about 21 or 22.

Vancouver: Jay Nolly, Wes Knight, Jay DeMerit, Greg Janicki, Alain Rochat, Shea Salinas, Terry Dunfield, Gershon Koffie, Davide Chiumiento, Eric Hassli, Camilo Sanvezzo

Subs: Joe Cannon, Jeb Brovsky, Nizar Khalfan, Omar Salgado, Blake Wagner, Russell Teibert, Mouloud Akloul
