It's almost time to kickoff the last match of the North American Soccer League season, where the New York Cosmos and Ottawa Fury FC will play until a champion is crowned. There's really no way to understate the importance of this match, for the Cosmos, it's a chance to win their seventh NASL title, while the Fury are seeking their first.
This match also marks the end of a career for both Raul and Marcos Senna, both of whom would obviously like to win a title as they're hanging up their boots. With that in mind, we're getting a look at two very strong lineups today.
Gio Savarese has everyone except Adam Moffat available, and has selected the following squad:

Here's hoping the boys in green and white finish with a bang, and send both Senna and Raul back to Spain as NASL champions.
