Desperate times call for desperate measures. Looking to avoid a third loss against the worst team in MLS this season, Tata Martino has pulled the bubble wrap off his star striker. That’s right. Josef Martinez is finally back in Atlanta United’s starting lineup for tonight’s match against D.C. United. He’s been out of action for the past three league matches with a foot contusion.
Along with Josef, Greg Garza also returns after suffering a shoulder injury in the MLS All-Star Game and missing a match. It looks to be as full-strength of a lineup as we’re going to see this season. No excuses for this one. COME ON, BOYS!
