MLS Regular Season
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.

On the situation the team is going through…
Colorado Rapids fell to their first defeat of the 2015 season as they went down 2-0 to New England Revolution at Dick's Sporting Goods Park on Saturday.
A sublime finish from Juan Agudelo divided the teams in the first half and, just after the restart, Lee Nguyen scored from the spot.
Welcome Rapids Fans,
Thanks for joining us here at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park for the second home game of the 2015 season, which today sees us welcome last year’s MLS Cup finalists and Eastern Conference champions, New England Revolution.
The team has got off to a solid start, with three scoreless draws, and are proving to be a stubborn side to break down. Pablo and the players have been working hard again this week as we go in search of our first win and first goal of 2015.
Colorado Rapids are back on home soil this Saturday when they entertain New England Revolution at Dick's Sporting Goods Park, kickoff 5:00 p.m. MT (TICKETS).
