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