Orlando City FC, winner of Minnesota United (3-1) on Thursday, will challenge the Portland Timbers in the final of the MLS tournament held behind closed doors in the bubble of Disney World in Orlando. The Portuguese star Nani put the Florida team into orbit by scoring the first two goals (36th and 42nd). His second achievement was the result of a superb strike rolled twenty meters from the cages.
Mason Toye restored hope to Minnesota by reducing the score (83rd), but Benji Michel sealed the victory of Orlando in stoppage time. The Lions, in search of a first major title since their integration in MLS, will challenge Tuesday next the Timbers, who eliminated the Philadelphia Union (2-1) on Wednesday. After this final, the regular season of the Championship, suspended in early March due to the Covid-19 pandemic, should resume at the end of the month.
