Orlando City right back Ruan went 68 games in purple without scoring a single goal. It seems as if he’s making up for lost time.

After opening his Orlando City account at mid-week against Montreal, Ruan notched his second goal in as many games this Sunday at Philadelphia, earning Heineken Man of the Match honors.

With the Lions down 1-0 in the 57th minute after a very controversial goal was awarded to the Union late in the first half, Mauricio Pereyra got on the ball outside the penalty area and whipped in a poisonous cross from Ruan, who played a beautiful header across the face of goal that nestled comfortably inside the far post.
