Lee, Matt, and Omar have a very candid conversation with Miami FC’s head coach Nelson Vargas about their return to play in the USL Championship and his Screen Actor’s Guild card. Lee catches up with Sebastian Velasquez about the return to play and the upcoming USL schedule. The guys also discuss Inter Miami’s MLSisBack performance and the future of Miami Freedom Park. Join us, won’t you?
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.
Inter Miami CF still search for their first win with time fleeting in the #MLSisBack cup. While the scoreline matched up correctly, I unfortunately got the result flipped. Miami has failed to live up to the lofty expectations in their showings so far. Inter will need some help in order to avoid a consolation game in their final matchday against NYCFC.
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.
Could it really be happening? Is it possible that MLS is just a mere hours from resuming play? It certainly is. While the bubble being built around the Swan & Dolphin hotels at the Walt Disney World Resort may have its fair share of headlines, MLS is pushing through. The #MLSISBACK Cup Competition begins tonight from Disney’s Wide World Of Sports Complex. Inter Miami and Orlando City are the headliners for today’s opening act. Unfortunately for Inter Miami’s “Familia”, these matches right up the road in Orlando remain behind closed doors.
