The Cosmos haven't won a game in Canada since their return to playing competitive soccer, and FC Edmonton are the only NASL club they didn't defeat in 2013. They'll look to end both of those streaks tonight when they face the Eddies in front of a packed house at Clarke Stadium, on the worst playing surface the league has to offer.
The Eddies were a tough nut to crack in 2013, and look like they'll provide a similar test this evening. With that in mind, Gio Savarese has selected the following squad tonight:

If you're at home and looking for a way to watch tonight's game, remember that you can still sign up for a free trial of NASL Live. Here's hoping the Edmonton broadcast is better than last year, and that the result from our trip to Alberta is better as well.
