Orlando City head coach Adrian Heath claimed that the return of Kaka has boosted the team immensely.
He was pleased to see his team ran out 4-1 winners over Portland Timbers. Health felt that this victory was completely deserving of the team’s performance. The former Real Madrid and AC Milan superstar scored upon his return. He had missed the first couple of matches of the MLS campaign due to an injury. Even then, Orlando will be delighted with the start that they have made for the 2016 season. This victory sees them top the table after four matches. They already have a two-point advantage over New England Revolution.
The one issue for Orlando will be conceding the late consolation goal for Portland Timbers. The team would have been happy with a clean sheet. This was the second consecutive win for Orlando after they started the campaign with two draws. Hines opened the scoring after just 13 minutes while Brek Shea came up with a rare league goal in the 32nd minute. This was his first goal since 2012 and it provided the platform for a comfortable victory. The head coach was especially happy with the way the team combined with each other in the final third of the pitch.
This promises to bring more goals in the coming games. “That was a massive win for us. We fully deserved it and I think some of our play at times was exceptional. We got good goals and big performances from a number of players and, if we continue to play with that intensity, it is a pretty formidable force. I think his combination play in and around the final third was excellent, and he is so difficult to mark. But we shouldn’t be surprised. He is one of the great players of the modern era,” said Health about the win and Kaka.
