Much was said before the game with Loudoun United about The Miami FC now having a string of cup finals to end the season. It was plain to see for everyone on Sunday afternoon that the performance from the Orange and Blue was not up to the standard required for any kind of big game.
The Miami FC got their 2021 campaign off to a winning start Sunday evening at Riccardo Silva Stadium, grinding out a 2-1 win after playing much of the game with ten men.
After a disappointing 2020 season, no one can blame The Miami FC for wanting to put last year behind them as quickly as possible.
Miami has a chance to do that Sunday night when they kick off their 2021 campaign against Loudoun United. It will be the first meeting between the two teams. They will get to see each other three more times later this season as Atlantic Division rivals.
