Fullback Franco Escobar (groin) has returned from his injury and is available Saturday.
“He’s doing really well and is ready to start if selected for the team,” de Boer said.
De Boer confirmed that Michael Parkhurst, who normally is a centerback, has worked out at fullback because of the lack of depth at that position.
“”He already played four years at the position so he knows the role,” de Boer said. “With Franco, with his injury that we had, it’s a good option to have in the back of your mind. He can play that position, that’s for sure.”
