Chicago Fire are set to be boosted by the return of defender Arne Friedrich.
The Fire have already conceded nine goals in four MLS matches and will benefit greatly from the German's presence after undergoing two weeks of therapy in Berlin to overcome a hamstring injury.
"I don't have pain anymore and I guess we can celebrate that a little bit," said Friedrich. "The important thing is that no pain is left."
Friedrich has yet to play a match for the Fire this season and could be back in action when they host New York Red Bull on April 7.
