In one of his final games at Exploria Stadium, Chris Mueller did what he does best – celebrate with the Wall.
The forward nabbed his third goal of the season on that play, a beautiful full-field team goal that helped Orlando City to a 1-1 draw with CF Montréal on Wednesday night. Mueller was voted Heineken Man of the Match for his performance.
For Mueller, the goal served as further proof that the 25-year-old Lion is heating up at the right time. Mueller has followed up his game-winning assist from October 2 against D.C. United with back-to-back starts and now has his first goal since July 3.
Beyond the goal, Mueller was part of a swarming high press Oscar Pareja deployed in the first half. He recorded an interception and four ball recoveries while also tying for the team lead with two fouls won. He crossed the ball twice and completed 18 of his 22 passes on the night.
