Small victories | The Journal of Montreal

When you rank last in MLS with just nine points and two small wins in 13 games, you find your happiness wherever you can.

This is how Inter Miami CF see progress in their game after drawing a 1-1 draw against the Philadelphia Union last weekend.

“The impression from the last game is that our attitude is more positive than what we have seen in the last month,” said head coach Phil Neville this week.

“We see it as a baby step forward, and ultimately it’s a little brick placed on the foundation and we have to keep building on that. « 

In short, we cling to the hope that the team will progress even if it is certainly not where we envisioned it at the start of the season.


For defender Nicolas Figal, this small result against Philadelphia must serve as a catalyst for the future.

“The general mood has improved a lot because we faced a rival in a hard-fought game after suffering a heavy loss.

In truth, we want this to be the beginning, the start of a new beginning that will give us confidence that Inter Miami will achieve their goals by fighting for the championship. « 

This is a surge of positivism a little dreamy when we know that with its 9 points, Miami is 12 points behind CF Montreal and seventh place in the East, the last which gives access to the playoffs. .

Mute attack

The main problem for Miami is not even defensive play despite 23 goals allowed. Rather, it is the fuel exhaustion in attack that undermines the team.

Despite the addition of Gonzalo Higuain, who has collected five goals and two assists in twelve appearances, the cake just doesn’t rise. And Higuain is a doubtful case for Saturday night’s game.

Behind the Argentine star is Robbie Robinson, a second-year player with two goals. It is therefore very thin in attack.
