Arizona United lost its first regular season match of 2016, 2-0 at LA Galaxy II. My only impression is that United were simply over-matched. Los Dos is, objectively, among the strongest clubs outside of MLS on paper, and they came to play this past Saturday.
Tonight the Firebirds take on Seattle Sounders 2, and while Seattle is typically much better at home, the season is still young, and the roster of S2 is fluid at the moment. That being said, any lessons learned by Frank Yallop in the season opener could lead to an improved result tonight in Tukwila, Washington.
