This equivalence was the result of a clever change from Wilfried Nancy. The coach put together three midfielders early in the game. But the trio of Matko Miljevic, Joaquin Torres and Djorji Mihajlovic struggled to win against a tough Orlando defense.

The plan was to play with the midfielders just to try to control. […] Before the match, I had planned with my crew that Sonosi [Ibrahim] Return home to take advantage of the work of the first half.

So Ibrahim replaced Miljevic at the end of the first half. from 46NS Minute, the striker stole a certain goal, from close range, by Peru goalkeeper Pedro Galeese.

“It was not the entry of Sanusi that made the team better. What made the difference was that we were able to find Djurji and Matthew [Choinière] in the blanks. That’s why we were able to stabilize and put them in jeopardy so that Senussi could then do the races in depth. ”

When Chris Muller went 1-0 in the 45th minuteNS, on a nice cross from Rouen from deep right, still confirms the direction of the first period. Orlando had attempted an eight-for-zero shot for Montreal.
