A first defeat for CF Montreal


CF Montreal suffered their first loss of training camp on Tuesday in Fort Myers, Florida, losing 2-1 to the Philadelphia Union.

Wilfried Nancy’s men thus have a victory, a draw and a defeat in preparatory matches.

In the duel of the day, Cory Burke broke a 0-0 tie in the 75th minute, when he jumped on a return throw from teammate Quinn Sullivan.

However, at the end of the regulation 90 minutes, the two teams decided to prolong the pleasure by playing 30 more minutes.

During this improvised overtime, the Belle Province team tied the game in the 99th minute, but the Pennsylvania team replied just before the final whistle, more precisely in the 118th minute, through Paxten Aaronson .

CF Montreal will play a final preseason match on American soil on Friday against United Soccer League Miami FC at the Inter Miami CF training center before heading to Mexico, where they will face Santos Laguna in the CONCACAF Champions League on February 15.
