Minnesota United will again be without its pair of new internationals as it prepares to take on the Houston Dynamo on Wednesday at TCF Bank Stadium. Both Scottish winger Sam Nicholson and New Zealand defender Michael Boxall are still waiting for all their paperwork to go through in order to play. But here is the rest of the Loons' lineup:
