The New York Red Bulls look set to receive a big boost to their faltering offense. All-Star forward Juan Pablo Angel is traveling with the team to Colorado for tomorrow’s game against the Colorado Rapids and is expected to play.
Angel has been sidelined for almost a month and hasn’t played since scoring the game-winning goal for the Red Bulls against Chivas USA on June 5. He has been out with a lingering hamstring injury caused by a back condition. After training fully this week, Angel appears ready to return to action.
Nominated for an ESPY as MLS player of the year on Thursday, Angel has scored two goals in seven games this season. Last season, Angel scored 19 goals in 24 matches.
