Orlando City will be forced to take the field without one of their key players on Sunday night. Again.
The Orlando Sentinel is reporting this evening that Brazilian midfielder Kaká did not travel with the team to New York on Saturday, and will miss their Soccer Sunday showdown against the New York Red Bulls in Harrison, NJ, due to a groin strain.

He was also spotted by a fan before the game at the Citrus Bowl:
Kaká missed the first three games of the season with a thigh strain, returning against the Portland Timbers earlier this month.
The Lions will also be without midfielder Antonio Nocerino on Sunday, who was suspended one game by Major League Soccer on Thursday.
