Kellyn Acosta is finding his form in Colorado and the two USMNT strikers faced each other in Orlando. This and more in the this week’s edition.
In just his first two matches, Kellyn Acosta has come to form for his new club. The Colorado Rapids midfielder has scored in both fixtures and is showing that his recent transfer may already be paying dividends.
After being left on the bench in Dallas, Acosta looks to be playing a refreshed version of the normal self and is showing why he has been a highly praised player in the USMNT ranks, scoring his second goal in a 2-1 win over LA Galaxy with a slaloming run and thumping low shot from distance that arrowed into the bottom corner.
Juan Agudelo, meanwhile, had a stellar match for the New England Revolution. The striker scored a goal and recorded an assist against Orlando City. His counterpart, Dom Dwyer, scored a goal for Orlando City in a 3-3 draw. Dwyer’s goal gives him ten on the year, which makes this the fourth time in his MLS career that the striker has reached double-digit goals in the regular season.
