The VAN vs SJ match preview –
Vancouver Whitecaps have been pitted against San Jose Earthquakes in a game played in the American football league, MLS.
The Canadian team have been hovering in the middle of the Western Conference table of MLS for a while, and this is their last chance to make run for the playoff stage. The team has been unlucky with the number of goals they’ve conceded, and it has been down to lapses of concentration by the players. This is the time for the players to step up and take responsibility of where this team will end up finishing and be proud of their effort when the season comes to an end.
Meanwhile, San Jose Earthquakes are the team with the lowest points total in the MLS. They have been poor in every single department in the first half of the season but the coach has finally found the recipe to make his team balanced. They are scoring goals for fun, and with no pressure of making into the playoff, the players have the freedom to express themselves on the pitch. This run of games can help the team gather more data about themselves, and be better prepared for the next season.

Vancouver FC centre back Roberto Dominguez signed a contract with the club earlier this month but the coach has revealed that the player remains “a week or two” away to get up to speed before he could be considered for the game. While Jose Aja has been ruled out of the match due to the left quad injury. Also, midfielder Jordan Mutch remains a big doubt while Brek Shea will be monitored ahead of the match.
For San Jose, Shea Salinas is suspended while Kevin Partida (right ACL reconstruction surgery, partial meniscectomy) is the only major absentee ahead of this match.
