Soccer-Lite MLS Cup Saved by Spectacular Climax
Quite a game. And there’ll be plenty of differing opinions about exactly what sort of a game the MLS Cup was. Conor Casey, voted the game’s MVP (presumably for scoring a goal while sitting on his ass) told us “it wasn’t the prettiest game.” Minutes later, an overheated Alexi Lalas said “for me, it was the most physical MLS Cup in history” – and he meant that as praise.
Casey comes closer to the truth – this was more of a battle than a soccer game that was simply physical. Dallas wanted to play some stylish soccer — and in the first half had some success doing that. Though not too much.
