MLS Regular Season
James Riley is back home in Colorado, enjoying his soccer with the Rapids, but he is aware that a stern test awaits this coming Saturday in the shape of his former club, Seattle Sounders FC.
FC Dallas collided with a Colorado Rapids side hungry for goals and desperate for success when the two teams met at Toyota Stadium on Friday night, resulting in a convincing 4-0 win for the visitors.
Praise has poured in for the Colorado Rapids following that stunning 4-0 victory at Dallas on Friday.
The first two scorers, Dominique Badji and Dillon Powers, were nominated in the MLSSoccer.com Team of the Week. Talking about the rookie striker, they wrote: “Badji's work up front was tremendous all game, hounding the Dallas back line. Of course, it started with a goal in the second minute.”
They said this about Powers: “Set up the first goal with a pinpoint cross and then scored on a play brimming with individual talent.”
Colorado Rapids snatched a sensational 4-0 win against FC Dallas at Toyota Stadium on Friday evening.
Goals from Dominique Badji, Dillon Powers, Gabriel Torres and Dillon Serna gave Pablo Mastroeni’s men their first victory of the season in emphatic style.
In the opening four games of the campaign, Rapids had put in decent performances but not always achieved results to match. This evening they allied the two.
Beware the wounded animal.
Colorado Rapids feel aggrieved at their outward perception so far this season.
While three points from four games is the cold reality of their results, the performances have been a different matter entirely.
Colorado Rapids defender, Drew Moor, who is fully recovered from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, returns to the Rapids Podcast to offer a little insight into this Friday's opponents, FC Dallas.
Moor has been sidelined for almost eight months, following the injury at D.C. United on August 17, 2014.
Players and coaches react to Saturday's 2-0 home loss to New England Revolution, in which the Colorado Rapids conceded their first goals of the 2015 season.
Co-hosts Richard Clarke and Richard Fleming are your guides through the post-match chatter, which includes contributions from head coach Pablo Mastroeni, skipper Marcelo Sarvas, midfielder Sam Cronin and rookie Dominique Badji.
