[MLS SPOTLIGHT] There will be 14 MLS games during and following the last day of play in the upcoming FIFA fixture schedule. All but two teams (New York and Sporting Kansas City) will be playing during this year's June stretch of international matches, and all but three teams (Chivas USA, Colorado and D.C. United) will have players away on national team duty.

Eight of the teams with national team callups will get one or more of their players back from national team duty or have them before they depart on national team duty for one or more of their games.

The team worst hit is Portland, which loses four players for 1-3 MLS games. The luckiest team is Sporting KC, which has six players off playing for their national teams but has no MLS games scheduled during the stretch of games.

MLS teams will also lose players on the U.S. and Mexico national teams once final rosters are finalized for the Under-20 World Cup that runs June 21-July 13 in Turkey.
