Kaka Representing for City
MLS fans have spoken and Orlando City’s #10 will line up alongside the League’s best August 2nd at Soldier Field in Chicago.
The 2017 MLS All-Stars will face off against the two-time defending European Champions Real Madrid. Zinedine Zidane’s squad will march stateside after recently collecting their second UEFA Champions League title in as many years.
Kaka’s involvement in MLS All-Star games has been a foregone conclusion since his arrival in the League three years ago. Orlando City’s legendary Brazilian can light up any match with his crafty, inventive style of play.
Soccer fans all over the world should be salivating at the prospect of seeing Kaka, Schweinsteiger, and David Villa line up against Cristiano Ronaldo and the mighty Real Madrid.
Pride Draw Spirit
Marta was at it again for Orlando in a difficult away fixture against Washington. The Brazilian scored two goals - increasing her tally to eight on the season - in an entertaining 2-2 draw against Stephanie Labbe and the Spirit.
Look no further than the stats summary to understand it was a dead-even affair. The teams traded goals throughout the match; it was not until the 90th minute when Washington netted their equalizer from the penalty spot.
Tom Sermanni and the Pride would have loved to take the three points home to Orlando, but a draw on the road is not necessarily a poor result.
The NWSL table is tightly packed with quality teams top to bottom. Sermanni has preached all season about the competitive balance in America’s elite women’s soccer league. Each team poses a unique challenge; which makes for highly competitive matches week in and week out. It is great to see as an American soccer fan.
Orlando Pride current league position: 6th place in NWSL (16 points)
