It’s definitely challenging, especially with this heat. I think it helps us that we have such a deep squad. So we will do our best, the trainers are in there helping us recover as fast as possible. And we will do our best to put out a good lineup on Wednesday.
New England will return to MLS action on July 22nd against the LA Galaxy.
