Having to worry about World Cup call-ups for TFC is admittedly a high class problem, but according to FIFA the official date for release of players is May 26 and a "rest period" starts May 19. Even using the later date, Bradley, Cesar and maybe Defoe will miss both legs of the Voyageur Cup finals (if TFC get that far) as well as MLS games against Columbus, San Jose and New York. The earlier date would also rule out the Kansas City game. To the extent the US, Brazil and England make it past the group stage the games against Chicago, DC, Houston and maybe Vancouver also come into play. TFC can live without Cesar and Defoe, but playing without Bradley for that long is a frightening prospect.
