In addition to being stiffly beaten at the count of 3 to 0 by the Seattle Sounders, Sunday at Orlando, the Vancouver Whitecaps have lost goalkeeper Maxime Crépeau, who was injured shortly before game time.
The former Montreal Impact will certainly forget the second game of his own tournament “The MLS is back”. In the 56th minute of the game, it had to be replaced after having been the victim of a collision with the midfielder opposing Handwalla Bwana in front of his net. The Quebec is led to the outside of the side lines where he struggled to remove his glove, potentially affected at the wrist. The substitute 21 years of age Thomas Hasal has completed the encounter before the cage of the Whitecaps.
Earlier, the Sounders had made the life of Crépeau and his team-mates who have received a second setback in as many outings since the start of the competition. Shortly after the quarter of an hour of the game, Nicolas Lodeiro beat the keeper on a penalty kick awarded after a hand of the defender Jasser Khmiri in the area of repair.
Nearly twenty minutes later, Seattle has doubled the bet, thanks to Jordan Morris, who was beaten for speed rivals to hit the target with a low shot. At the back of the locker room, Raul Ruidiaz has capitalized on a corner kick to widen the gap.
Stefan Frei has managed the clean sheet by blocking two balls. Seattle has taken possession of the second place of group B with four points, one more than the Fire of Chicago. The latter, however, can take its place amid Vancouver, Thursday.
