Daniele Paponi is set to make his MLS debut for Montreal Impact against Chicago Fire.

The former Bologna striker enjoyed a half-hour in the Amway Canadian Championship on Wednesday.

"We had a chat after the [Toronto] game and he said he was feeling fine," Impact assistant coach Mauro Biello told reporters on Friday. "Needing time to adapt when you join a team is normal. He's in shape, he works very hard and, if he was able to play 30, then he can give us more going forward."
