Amarikwa had two goals on three shots during the Earthquakes 5-2 loss to the Galaxy on Friday.

Amarikwa got the start despite coming into the game with a shoulder contusion, though San Jose is limited in the attack because Chris Wondolowski is away at the Gold Cup. He was re-acquired by the Earthquakes last week from the Fire and looks like he should get much more playing time as a result of the move.

Amarikwa (shoulder) will start in Friday's game against the Galaxy.

Amarikwa's availability for Friday's game is a bit surprising since he suffered a right shoulder contusion just a week ago. Nevertheless, he'll continue to start in place of Chris Wondolowski (international duty) for the time being.

Amarikwa has a right shoulder contusion and his status for Friday's game against the Galaxy is in question, Geoff Lepper of MLSsoccer.com reports.

Amarikwa was given the start last week against the Dynamo after getting traded from the Fire where he was previously an unused substitute in three-straight games before the move out west to San Jose. He may lose his spot in the starting XI when Chris Wondolowski (international duty) rejoins the club, but it seems that his career has taken a turn for the better with this change of scenery, although he'll need to recover from his current shoulder contusion before that truly manifests.

Amarikwa will get his first start for the Earthquakes this season Friday against the Dynamo.

Friday's game is the first that Amarikwa is eligible to play after being acquired from Chicago, and he'll get the start with Chris Wondolowski away at the Gold Cup.

Amarikwa was traded to the Earthquakes on Friday in exchange for Ty Harden, MLSSoccer.com reports.

Amarikwa was getting very inconsistent playing time with the Fire, and while he's not guaranteed to start immediately for the Quakes, the path to playing time seems a bit more open.

Amarikwa picked up an assist on David Accam's 28th minute goal during Chicago's 3-1 loss to D.C. United on Wednesday.

Amarikwa got the start Wednesday, just his second in the last seven matches, and picked up his first assist of the year. With a number of better fantasy options on the roster, it's tough to make a great case for Amarikwa to be on many fantasy teams despite taking 11 shots in the last four games.

Amarikwa has been one of the stories of the season so far, and it continued Saturday as he netted his third goal for the Fire as they earned a 1-1 draw with Montreal.

Q was a super sub for the Fire last year, but he has seized his chance to start. He is a definite fantasy asset, but his price tag is going to start to soar.

Amarikwa grabbed his second goal of 2014 in the 82nd minute to steal a 2-2 draw for Chicago in D.C on Saturday.

Chicago, as has been in the case in the last couple of seasons, spread their scoring across the entire roster. But Amarikwa has shown in brief stints with Toronto and Colorado that he can dump in some goals when his number is called. If he gets 80 to 90 minutes per game, he could emerge as a giant weapon for the Fire.
