A short roundup of coverage about Miami soccer:
Andre Carrillo, with his hair dyed gray, booted in a first-half strike, and Edison Flores used his left foot to knock in a rebound in the second 45, much to the delight of the crowd of 46,893, which was dominated by red-and-white clad Peru fans.
Walter Villa of the Miami Herald writes a recap of Friday’s Peru-Croatia victory, where Los Incas dominated in front of a very pro-Peru crowd. But he also goes into greater detail about what Peru’s participation in the 2018 FIFA World Cup means to the fans.
After moving to Miami full time, David Beckham is reportedly looking at appointing Carlo Ancelotti as the first-ever manager of his Miami franchise in Major League Soccer.
When you don’t actually have a team playing on the field, all you have is silly season. England’s Daily Mirror is not the most reliable source, however there are Beckham-Ancelotti connections, and if Becks could bring in Carlo to lead the Fútbol Miami MLS side, Ancelotti would immediately become the most prestigious manager to ever lead a side in America. Stay tuned.
The preseason tournament the Romero Cup is beginning to wind down.

Red Force and Miami United — both 2018 U.S. Open Cup participants — will square off later this week.
