Inter Miami CF conceded a goal early in the second half to fall behind 2-1 and two more late on, falling to New York Red Bulls 4-1 in the team’s first home game against an opponent outside the Southeast.
No one ever wants to leave Walt Disney World, but Inter Miami CF’s stay in the Major League Soccer bubble at the resort was disappointingly short. Miami was not given many favors in its group draw, forced into an opening fixture with Orlando City SC followed by a date with the Philadelphia Union. The club’s final match saw it fighting for its tournament lives against NYCFC.
Coming into the match, both teams were seeking their first win. NYCFC were conceding more goals than Miami. Unfortunately, a 63rd minute goal would seal Miami’s fate.
The #MLSisBack tournament continues this evening with the second matchday for Group A. Inter Miami are currently behind the 8-ball if they wish to qualify for the knockout rounds of the tournament. Following Inter’s heartbreaking loss to a last minute goal to Orlando’s Nani, the climb got harder with the Philadelphia Union besting NYCFC on a goal by Weston’s Alejandro Bedoya. If Inter ever needed their first win, it’s tonight.
