Diop, 27, has been Montreal's No. 1 since Sept. 2019, and started every game of the 2020 regular season for the Impact. With the Senegalese international out, Thierry Henry handed an MLS debut to 23-year-old academy product James Pantemis for his team's Wednesday night clash with the New England Revolution (7:30 pm ET | TVAS, TSN5 in Canada, MLS LIVE on ESPN+ in US).
Montreal's previous starting goalkeeper, 34-year-old Evan Bush, had backed up Diop for most of 2020, but was traded to Vancouver on Sept. 28. Another Homegrown, 19-year-old Jonathan Sirois, is the other goalkeeper on the Impact's roster and will serve as Pantemis' backup against New England.
