Many MLS teams are without key players this week as international duty calls.

Many MLS teams are without key players this week as international duty calls.

Toronto FC is no exception with midfielders Amado Guevara and Carl Robinson away on international duty.

"We have to deal with it and get on with it," said Toronto FC coach John Carver. "They've (Columbus Crew) got a couple of guys missing as well so we should be evenly matched.

"The fact that we're missing two guys from the heart of our midfield is a little bit concerning, but it will give the opportunity to other players to come into the team and make an impact. I've got to look at one or two positions because of Carl and Amado being away on international duty but most of the guys that played last weekend will play again. I don't like changing the side if I don't have to."
