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 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.”

Beware the wounded animal.

Colorado Rapids feel aggrieved at their outward perception so far this season.
