Sporting Kansas City looked to be heading for a narrow victory against Minnesota United on Sunday, but two goals in stoppage time enabled the formation of the Minnesota win 2 to 1.
The cast of Adrian Heath first took advantage of a free kick when Khiry Shelton, a player of Sporting, pushed the ball into his own goal. Minnesota came charging rapidly, and that’s Kevin Molino, who has allowed his followers to steal the victory at Sporting, a few seconds before the whistle in the end.
Kansas City would, however, get by with 10 players as goalkeeper Tim Melia was ejected with a red card in the 75th minute. The coach of the latter, Peter Vermes, had to use a change to make the goalkeeper Richard Sanchez to the place of a midfielder.
Sporting had managed to take the lead at the very end of the first half, while Shelton took advantage of a beautiful individual play from his team-mate Alan Pulido, before being granted an error of judgment of the goalkeeper to place the ball in the opposition’s net.
