Orlando Cuts RSL’s Lead In Half With Goal By Nani

Scott Winterton, Deseret News

SANDY, Utah – Orlando City SC subbed in former Manchester United star Nani in the second half and he made Real Salt Lake pay with a goal late in the game.

Nani, a Portuguese superstar who played with Manchester United from 2007-15, entered the game in the 56th minute and struck with a goal in the 81st minute.

He scored on a free kick which his teammate, Dom Dwyer, earned in the attacking half, just outside the box. Nani took the kick and just cleared a wall of RSL defenders and put it past Nick Rimando, who managed to get a fingertip on it before the ball found its way into the goal.

The goal prevented Orlando from being shut out after RSL was lead 2-0 after goals by Sam Johnson and Damir Kreilach.

Orlando City came into the game looking to extend RSL’s misery. Prior to the matchup, RSL had lost four straight games.

The match between RSL and Orlando City SC can be streamed live on KSLSports.com and the KSL TV app.
