Minnesota Thunder 1-2 Miami FC: Blues Impress on National TV

Miami FC played perhaps their best road match of the season last night at the National Sports Center in Minnesota. The game was broadcast live nationally on FOX Soccer Channel, the first Miami FC game in three months on national TV and the first Minnesota home game in five years on national tv.

Paulo Jr. scored twice on the counter attack and until the last 20 minutes, the Blues snuffed out any good chance for the Thunder to win 2-1. While Minnesota controlled possession for much of the game, the Blues deployed an effective and deadly counter attack which netted two goals and several other half chances.

I’ll have much more on this game and particularly on Paulo Jr., either later today or after tomorrow’s Gold Cup Final.
