Virtual Minnesota United on a Roll In FIFA 20

Two wins in two simulated FIFA 20 matches recently

Unfortunately, we are still several weeks away from actual football, Minnesota United has been going strong in simulated matches in FIFA 2020.

Two weeks ago the Loons hosted the New York Red Bulls at virtual Allianz Field in a match that was supposed to be their actual home-opener but was canceled due to the Coronavirus.

The match was a back and forth contest that looked like it was headed for a draw but late sub Mason Toye, who came in at the 82nd minute for Luis Amarilla, scored the only goal of the match with less than a minute left in second-half injury time to give Minnesota the victory.

The final score was Minnesota 1 - New York Red Bulls 0

The Loons next match was this past Saturday at virtual Allianz Field against the Montreal Impact.

In a hard-fought affair that yielded a lot of shots but not a lot of goals, striker Luis Amarilla, via a beautiful setup pass from Kevin Molino, was able to slip one past the Impact defense to score the first goal of the match and ultimately was the match-winner.

The final score was again 1-0 Minnesota over the Montreal Impact

If you are still looking for your football fix, the entire match can be re-watched online:
