Injuries and suspensions are a part of life in soccer and Orlando City has been no stranger to that over the last few weeks.
As the team headed on the road last weekend, Jason Kreis had to piece together a starting lineup, but it worked out as the team emerged with three points from a 2-1 victory.
“The whole week, we were just trying to make a decision,” said Kreis following the match in D.C.
