Miami F.C. beat Atlanta Silverbacks


 Share

Recommended Posts

Miami FC earned their second victory in the USL First Division, and their second win in a row this weekend with a win over the Atlanta Silverbacks 1-0, with a glorious last minute goal.

Miami FC continues to improve game after game and earned 7 of their last 9 points possible, immediately rising in the USL Standings. Atlanta Silverbacks showed a defensive attitude since the first minute of the game, with hopes of a tie with the South Floridian Squad. Regardless, Miami FC created many scoring opportunities throughout the game. In the first half, Romario missed the best chance when he faced goalkeeper Felipe Quintero one-on-one, and couldn?t beat him.

The second half was full of opportunities that Miami FC could not capitalize on. Romario missed another chance from the left wing, sending the ball over the crossbar, and afterwards, Atlanta?s goalkeeper pulled another great save on a shot by Diego Walsh. But in the 92nd minute of play a great cross by Zinho was converted by Colombian Oscar Gil. One more time, Miami FC wins in dramatic fashion and gets their sixth point in less than 48 hours.

I cant believe Romario plays for Miami FC, he said he wants to go there to reach 1000 career goals or something just like Pele!

Romario was an amazing player in his prime.

Dont understimate Romario (even now with abtou 40 y/o), last season he was one of the top scorers in the National Brazilian Championship.

I think its nice that great players like him join teams in some countries where "soccer" is not developped, just see what happened to Japan in the last decade. Zico did an amazing job in Japan.
