All right, it will be a throw in.
No, I'm not doing the Red Sox tonight.
Fun. I'll be doing their game on Wednesday.
I'm honestly frustrated with them there.
They've been playing pathetically so, huh? The other.
They're playing off foreign at the start of the season, So not too pleased about that, But wherefore men's into this one.
Meanwhile, from Orlando, Day three of the round of 16 Game five of the Round of 16 win an absolute thriller of a game in the late game.
Yes, yesterday between Sporting, Kansas City and um, between Sporting Can City and Vancouver whitecaps penalty kicks had to decide the winner.

You came up big and the penalty kick shootout to get them through to the quarterfinals.
Rios up ahead for Magnus Eriksson.
He just couldn't control that ball, but San Jose back with it.
As I mentioned, the Earthquakes have had a really good tournament so far.
We'll see if that carries over into the knockout stages soon as they led by my head coach, Matias Almeyda.
So good ball over the top and it's a great job on the left hand side by Nick Lima and now a shot from way out.
Didn't trouble Zach McMath in any way, but you got a You got to say it's a good start for two this game for the Earthquakes they've been getting getting up field, creating chances or just six minutes in still no score.
Ramos Just a double.
Yeah, not surprised.
I'll even know the guys starting for the pitcher, starting for the Red Sox.
This oh such guy.
I've never heard of him.
It's his first ever career start.
Here's a chance, say Evade by Daniel Vega.
No, I got no idea who I Yeah, I know.
He's a relief pitcher.

Erickson back to Lima.
Now with a good ballplayer of the top.
The header was sent into a dangerous area but it was Aaron Herrera in the way.

It was a good idea on the header, but even better.
Defending from Rail Salt Lake.
Eight minutes in a foul called in the midfield and it goes against Magnus Eriksson.
RSL quickly restart play.
This is the first game of a doubleheader tonight.
The big one later tonight, arguably the best game of the round of 16.
Seattle Sounders taking on LFC.
11 PM Kick off, though, and I just I'm not.
I'm not commentating a game that way.
Thank you, Lisa, for joining the broad guest.
The throwing goes up the line as I mentioned a lot of bad weather in the area leading into this game, but that's not a worry.
Now it kick off.
It's just it's just a very soaked field with a lot of puddles.
But the game has started on time and the thunderstorms have moved out of the area.
This is a good ball played through.
Closing in towards goal is Espinosa.
Aspen knows it takes to the byline.
Looks to cut it back for Erickson, but Ruiz comes up with the steal for RSL.
Ruiz held onto it for a bit too long and it was Jackson.
You'll got a touch on the what that ball played over the top.
Making the run on to the end of this one is Douglas Martinez Martinez back Peru's neck.
Martinez looking to flick it on but is dispossessed by the Earthquakes.
No score from Orlando, Florida at ESPN Wide World of Sports.
Now here comes Espinosa the other way.
Espinosa on it was right foot goes for goal and just by a small margin wide of the far post, it was a great chance right there.
Ready? Want more? A few players.
I'm sorry about the background noises.
Yeah, that was a good opportunity.
Right footed strike to the back post, but just wide from Christian Espinosa.
Going back to the MLS is back group stage Santas.
They had six goals.
RSL just had to be.
Earthquakes with 57 shots were also like just 25 the shots.
Uncle 22 for San Jose, nine for RSL.
The Earthquakes at 36 corners.
They had like 22 of them in one game.
Real Salt Lake just had 11 corners in the group stage.
So on the offensive side of things, everything points towards the earthquakes having the edge on in that category.
Meanwhile, a foul called on garam Kashia.
Take the free kick.
You lifted that one long.
The header sent back up by the Earthquakes.
But rsl haven't once again Ruiz towards the corner flag.
Rusnak making the run, Going one V one with Tommy Thompson.
Now he reverses for Ruiz on Utoya.
In the midfield here is Marcello Silva, in space to work with for RSL.
It's played out to the far sideline.
What do you mean, Onley? Interns can beyond this app.
That's not true.
Here is Espinosa.
I mean, you're welcome to tune into my broadcast.
Your, uh it's I mean, it's your choice, whether you want toe tune in or not.
But here comes the earthquakes.
This is cut back by Ruiz.
It's a good tackle there to send it out of play.
Another home run for the Mets.
You know, I'm not surprised.
Yeah, honestly, like the Red Sox, maybe one of the worst teams in the league.
This is a dreadful start to the season.
It'll be Magnus Eriksson to take the corner kick.
It will be a left footed in swinger sent into the box.
Ericsson up against the advertising board.
It's a low driven ball sent towards the near post that's blasted out of play.
The Earthquakes quickly take the throwing.
Here is Erickson.
Once again, it's through Sivak.
Oh, he put it into a good area, but nobody was in the vicinity of where that ball was sent for the Earthquakes and the missed opportunity there for Santo's that this is now played back to the keeper Daniel Vega.
Thank you, Avery, for joining the broadcast.
Thank you, Karen, for also Su Ning and much appreciated guys.
It's more round of 16.
Action in the MLS is back tournament as we're getting down to the wire in this World Cup style tournament that the MLS is put on from Orlando, Florida Here is vodka vodka, weaving his way through a collision at the edge of the box.
Nothing called Bacho gets up and still has it eventually is called for the foul.
That was a little bit of a strange sequence right there.
I mean, it looked like Vacco just completely plowed over Justin.
And that should have NFL on him in the first place.
But then eventually, he clipped Aaron Herrera.
Avery, we don't need arguing here in the comments.
This is all the way back with, uh, with glad, glad finds McMath.
This is played over the top.
Cory Baird onto the end of it.
Can't quite get the shot off.
And it was cost you who came up with the steal.
Now, Andy Areas to Magnus Eriksson.
Ericsson will switch it to the far side.
It's a great switch of play.
In fact, thank you for the thumbs up.
Much appreciated Karen Vacco into Rios Rios to the right hand side.
Erickson trying to cross that one in, and it's last off of Donny Toia and it will be a corner kick for the Earthquakes.
They've had plenty of those.
Throughout the course of the tournament, San Jose will played short Erickson with the left foot. In slinger.
It goes a little too far, then what Erickson was looking for, and it's out of play for RSL goal kick.
The Mets home run was a three run home run, huh? Seven.
Nothing. Run like God.
The goal kick will be sent across midfield, flicked on towards the corner flag.
Chasing it down is Dominic Martinez.
Maybe a little shove there from Osvaldo Elonis, but refereed in spot, and he fell on the a great first touch toe.
Open up space for Espinosa and you'll take advantage of it out.
Why Vacco, Teoh Jackson? You'll you'll weaving his way through traffic still with it.
What should have passed it off to a variety of options he had, and eventually his last touch got away from him.
Thanks everyone for tuning into the stream tonight.
As always, I greatly appreciate I've had a blast commentating many games in this MLS is back tournament.
It's been a great tournament that that the MLS has been able Teoh put on in the bubble in Orlando at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex.
I mean, World Cup style tournaments are always very fun and entertaining, that's for sure.
This tournament hasn't disappointed one bit.
Now it's McMath who will send it along the head or one by a Lonnie's.
We're 20 minutes in nil nil the score from Orlando.
There will be three more round of 16 games after this, and then it's on to the quarter finals and was originally 24.
Teams at the start will be trimmed down to eight.
This is now Lonnie's along.
He's gives it away as it's stolen by Aaron Herrera, but Herrera's dispossessed.
And now here come the earthquakes the other way.
A nice bit of skill from Espinosa up now here is Varco.
Aspen knows I want to go Go the earthquake strike first and it's Christian Espinosa's up, who this time takes advantage of that shot down the right hand side to the far post.
He missed one earlier.
It was it was almost the exact same shot that went wide of the far post, but this time he slots at home to the bottom left corner, and this was great.
Build up play from the earthquakes and Espinosa up with a beautiful strike to put San Jose on top, a deserving first goal for the earthquakes.
You do have to say they came out as the team on the front foot, creating early chances.
Matias Almeyda up and his coaching staff liking what they've seen thus far.
And Espinosa, in the 21st minute, puts San Jose on the board.
The Earthquakes over rail salt like No, enough, enough, Von So a bad mistake here.
It could lead to a chance for RSL.
A little chip and RSL equalize go.
It's Douglas Martinez, who just seconds after Saito's a chip, the lead tied things up at one apiece.
Oh, my goodness, over the shoulder of Kasha, and after that, he was beaten.
And it's a beautiful finish by Douglas Martinez as well, a little chip over the incoming Daniel Vega, who was closing in.
That's a really good cheeky finished from Douglas Martinez, capitalizing off of a mistake from San Jose.
And they scored just a minute, if that after the Earthquakes took the lead.
And so it's 11 in the 23rd minute.
How about that now? Ericsson outline.
Tommy Thompson's past nearly was intercepted, but it made its way through the Erickson.
It's a great switch indeed, and now Andy Rios lays it back, an effort from distance.
Well, why? All right, let's go back to this RSL gold right off the kickoff.
I I don't know what Kashi was doing, to be honest with you, because he knew he knew that Martinez was making the run and cost you only need to do is get some type of contact on the ball and just let that one go right over a shoulder.
You couldn't get ahead to it.
And it led to a breakaway opportunity.
Thank you and s s and sports for joining the broadcast.
I appreciate you tuning in.
Glad to have you along here on SportsCastr.
It's the MLS is back tournament round of 16.
It will be either Erickson or Espinoza to take the free kick.
RSL will put two on the wall here 25 minutes in Ericsson goes short, square ball for as well as volatile colonies.
His shot from way out was blocked.
Alani says it back, though.
Lonnie Song is left, foot goes for goal once again and it's Justin.
Glad in the way.
Risky ball back to Judson.
Judson with a bouncing ball that's dealt with nicely by Daniel Vega.
Erickson's passed through to Tommy Thompson Thompson now toe Espinosa Espinosa under pressure and wins a throwing The Earthquakes have had some really good build up play in combination.
The middle of a field here is Judsen Thompson.
Now it's Erickson sandals.
They were gonna retake the lead.
I was looking for the long ball a little too much on the past.
Nick Lima couldn't chase it down in time.
It's a goal kick for Rail Salt Lake, and so the goal kick will be taken here by Zach McMath.
And despite San Jose, being the better team through the 1st 26 minutes it has been is a 11 game.
I should say, I don't know if that's true.
Von and I don't really care for this, to be honest with you.
Meanwhile, a little bit of Ah, a little bit of Ah, an exchange of words between Erickson and Ruiz.
But now it's all good.
It seems they both give each other a smile and we play on and so the free kick is taken by RSL Aulani Scott it forward.
But Ruiz comes away with in the midfield for RSL.
Now this ball laid out wide here is Rusnak wide for Cory Baird Bear trying to get around Thompson.
Thompson did well, though it prevents that one from going out of over the end line.
Instead, forces a throw in upon rail Salt Lake.
That's gonna be a good battle all night long, though.
Cory Baird and Tommy Thompson, obviously Cory Baird a gold score, and Tommy Thompson a very good defender, will be Toyota to take the throwing here for Rail Salt Lake.
I don't know when one Ramos will retire.
That's quite a obvious Fattal.
They're committed by Aaron Herrera.
He's going to be given a yellow card for his action as well.
Let's see the replay here.
Yeah, I mean, you just kind of put both arms around him.
Tug a shirt, spun him around.
So the yellow card deserving you? You have to say, no, it's back with Zach.
McMath were approaching the half hour mark 11 We're all tied up from Orlando, Florida The hydration break will take place any moment now, most likely at the next stoppage in play here.
Now, is this volatile Elonis.
Although RSL were putting their case, it's Judson streaking forward.
Now it's Rios wide for Espinoza asked me nose with a good ball end.
And Justin glad with a brave header as Vacco's boot was aureus is boot was way up towards his head.
That could have been called dangerous play.
Yeah, Rios was right.
They're making the run.
And that's big time.
Defending from glad.
Oh, my A corner kick, given Erickson's service took a deflection in the box.
No, it's out why in a late whistle, but a free kick has been given and we have another yellow card.
It's really getting chippy, and it's really gotten chipping in these last few minutes.
You can tell it's the type of intensity that you see in the knockout stage of tournaments.
That's exactly the case tonight so far between these two Western Conference opponents.
And so Espinosa is booked, and that leads us into our hydration break.
So both teams make their way over to the sideline, and 30 minutes through its center is a one rail salt lake. One.
Live right here on SportsCastr.
I appreciate you guys tuning into the stream.
I hope you guys have enjoyed thus far.
And yeah, it was.
Santa has been the better team and they were deserving of getting that first school.
But then it was a mistake right off the RSL kickoff.
After that goal that led to the equalizer.
It's It's completely your choice to you're you're welcome to, ah, tune into my broadcast for sure.
Despite despite whatever Isaac says.
Yeah, I appreciate it.
Yeah. No, No problem.
So it was a great finish by Espinosa for for San Jose to get them on the board of the 21st minute.
But then, as I mentioned one minute leader in the 22nd minute, it was a little chip over the keeper, Daniel Vega, with a little cheeky finish from Douglas Martinez that tied things off, tied things up.
Douglas Martinez left wide open on a breakaway.
But it was a phenomenal finish to not things even at one apiece.
I I appreciate you guys tuning into my streams for sure.
Yeah, I saw that on the USR playing in June of 2021.
Yeah, they revised the ah CONCACAF World Cup qualifier.
So now instead of the hexagonal, it will be an octagonal with eight teams.
Yeah, I saw that.
By the way, here is Freddie Harrah's the manager of RSL.
But you used to play football instead of just transition, but me possibly free.
How do you deal with San Jose? Transition notices things They're finding a lot of Espinosa on there.
Yeah, percent with pressure on the initial loss of possession just to delay t way.
It's easy, all right.
There is Freddy Juarez, the manager of Rail Salt Lake, giving his thoughts on how the 1st 30 minutes played out for his side.
Do I think Chelsea transferred for Verner to take him off? RB Leipzig What do you mean, no? I think Chelsea got him.
Oh, wait, Hold on. Here's a chance.
This is our wide for Christian Espinosa Espinosa through the Rios Rios trying to control spending around and getting the strike off in a big time, say, by Zach McMath.
There was plenty of power on the effort from Rios, but that's a big time safe from Zach.
McMath could have been a second goal over this year's she over this year's champions like No, no, no, not not at all.
Not at all, Drew.
No, it's I mean No, no, he it was.
It was a team of burners decision to go to Chelsea before before the Champions League resumed.
He could have stayed with Leipzig if he wanted to for the rest of the Champions League, but he decided not to. I don't know why.
If I were him, I would have played out the rest of the Champions League for Leipzig.
But now this is just a unique year because usually the Champions League is done by the end of May.
But this year it's not ending until August because of the Corona virus.
But no, no, Chelsea didn't get didn't get him to Ah just so he wouldn't be with Leipzig for the champions like No, no, not at all.
That wasn't the case because team of earner, if he wanted to, could have played for Leipzig the rest of the for the rest of the Champions League and Chelsea wouldn't have been able to do anything about it.
He had every right to do that, but I guess Verner just didn't want to risk getting any injury in the in the Champions League for Leipzig because he knows he is making a step up going to Chelsea for the beginning of next season's Yeah, my thoughts on the hexagon that conquer calf used to use.
Um it's a little bit different than how qualifying is an indifferent, indifferent confederations in different regions.
But I I like I like I like the hexagon.
To be honest with you, I thought it it provided plenty of drama.
Yeah, I didn't really have much wrong with it with with it.
Does ballistic have eligibility for any other country? I don't know.
I know he I don't know if his parents are from another country, but he definitely had.
Maybe his grand parents are from a European country.
I'm not sure, but But now he's He's already play with the U.
National team so he can't He can't make any switch over if he does have eligibility for another country now that he's played.
You know, once you play one game for the for a national team, you can't switch over.
If you play for the youth national team, you're allowed to switch over once before you play with the senior national team.
If you have eligibility with another country.
So yeah, yeah, now he's ease with the US.
That's that's for sure.
When it comes to international soccer, one of the 2020 21 Champions League start, I believe they're starting in, um, in October.
Yeah, they usually begin in September.
I think it's October this year, By the way, the halftime report is coming up soon.
It's a good ball in from Erickson.
Oh, Vacco, trying to get to his left foot benched, attempted to cut inside its last off of RSL in 1/4 kick.
Coming up on the halftime report, I will let you guys listen into an interview with the Conca CAF president, to talk about the decision to ah, what went into the decision, quite frankly, of of ah, you know, changing up the World Cup qualifying format.
So that will be coming your way at the half.
This is a delivery towards the near post headed away.
Now it's into the midfield.
The earthquakes on the vault here in shoots it, Judson all the way back for Daniel Vega.
Who is Liam? The team lay on their there, A Mexican club.
Oh, are you? Did you mean Leone with a y el y o n cause Elio Yeah, Leone? Yep.
With the Y Yeah, They're They're They're from France.
Yeah, their from their French club.
L e o n Leone is.
Ah, Mexican Club.
But l Y o and Leone is a French club.
Yeah, Yeah, They won the first leg against you dentists in the round of 16 of Champions League.
Erickson back for Judson.
Judson now will play across the back.
It's Garon Kashia on the ball.
We're into the 40th minute.
11 The scoreline.
Yeah, Fulham did win today up Erickson The Earthquakes content with moving the ball around the midfield.
Currently you're Rizal Unease colonies all the way out wide, taken down by the chest of Tommy Thompson.
Magnus Eriksson in the middle of the Park. Jackson.
You'll Vasco Vasco back to the near side with Ericsson that passed, poked away by Corey Baird and a throwing for San Jose.
Coming up, Ericsson goes up the line.
Here is Thompson.
It's off of Toya in a corner kick upcoming.
Five minutes to go until stoppage time in this opening half of play.
Yeah, yeah, I'm predicting Fulham to win the playoffs so and make the primarily we'll see.
Once again, it's both Espinosa and Ericsson lining up to take the corner.
It will be Espinosa, with the right footed outswinger put to a good spot, but the header wide? Yeah, she was left open.
He had a good look on the header.
My thoughts on the Marlins today, Yeah.
I mean, you know, for the MLB couldn't even get through the opening weekend.
Tohave Corona virus issues.
I mean, yeah, it's it is what it was.
Always a possibility, you know, with with the MLB teams traveling and stuff.
So I'm honestly not that surprised cause once one player has it spread through the clubhouse like rapid fire.
So it's concerning for sure reminder of what's at stake in this MLS's back tournament.
The winner of the tournament gets a spot in the 2021 CONCACAF Champions League and also $1.
1 million in prize money.
Meanwhile, Ruiz commits the foul in a free kick awarded to the Earthquakes, who are some scenes that qualified for the Champions League in 2020 and 21.
Um, hold on gets to that in a second reminder that coming up later tonight.
11 p.m. Eastern time.
It's probably the game of the Round of 16 Seattle Sounders versus LFC.
Those two teams met in the Western Conference final last year and meeting in the early rounds of this tournament.
Then you would have liked, but one of them will go home after tonight.
And so that should be an absolutely fantastic game.
Here is Erickson Eriksson to the far side, a shot from distance, but it's well, why No deflection and a goal kick for RSL teams have already qualified.
Um, in City Hall you got You've got you, Aventis and Lawzi, who have who have automatically have clinched a spot in next year's Champions League, most likely Inter Milan.
I don't know if they've officially clinched. I don't think so.
But Inter Milan, most likely willing along without the long tub Ah, in league uh I don't know because they didn't resume their season.
So it's just where the teams were.
Obviously P s G, I believe Leone and maybe maybe M****illes.
I can't remember what the standings looked like.
No, I think Napoli are outside of a Champions League spot.
Uh, Drew, I think Napoli Air Europa Leagues Far enough.
I'm not mistaken as that ball sent in is by Espinosa is clear the way by RSL.
And then yeah, and the primarily that's official.
It's Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea and Man United.
Uh, in the bonus league, I believe it's so.
It's Bayern Munich Brucie, a doorman, Leipzig and Bruce, CIA Munchengladbach and then in La Liga Um Barcelona.
Real Madrid, Sylvia in Athletico Madrid.
We're woman away from stoppage time here in the first half.
Two goals that came within a minute of each other have been the only two goals so far tonight.
11 The score here is Thompson Thompson, back for Vacco.
Vacco with a nice move, but couldn't get by the second defender.
But real Salt Lake just can't hold on the possession.
And so it's now in the midfield with Osvaldo Elonis through the contact presents name.
I can't remember, Von.
I will let you know at the half when they when they bring the CONCACAF president.
I can't remember his name.
Um, off the top my head San Jose haven't so much of the possession.
And here is Vasco.
Vasco fires one in a massive deflection popped up, taking down for a second there by Thompson.
That's a good steel by Baird.
One A bit of filthy nous as well, from Cory Baird.
Baird All the way into the middle.
But he held it too long, is a good recovery and was stolen by Kasha.
Two minutes of stoppage time here at the end of the first half.
Thank you, Brad, for joining the stream.
What's going on, Brad? Glad to have you tuning into the broadcast in the round of 16 of MLS is back.
Now it's Erickson through bold Andy Rios.
Now it's Espinosa who will keep this one in play right along the byline and a stupid foul committed by toil, as Erickson Rather Espinosa was facing towards the sideline.
And this gifts the earthquakes and opportunity.
A good one at that.
In the final stages of this first half, Ken San Jose retake the lead on what will most likely be the last chance of the first half.
We shall find out here on the free kick.
It was sent in towards the near post and it was Everton.
You got ahead to it.
So now surely will be the last play off this opening half a corner kick from the near side.
The Earthquakes have had so many corner kicks this tournament, and that's been the case tonight in particular.
Once again, Ericsson will send it in with the left footed inswinger in swinging ball.
Not enough Dell with Everton, and there's the halftime whistle.
It's down 45 to go from the ESPN wide World of Sports in Orlando, Florida, and we're all knotted up at one apiece in San Jose.
Earthquakes one or in all, saw late one.
Still, 45 more minutes to be played, and it should be filled with plenty of fireworks as it's winner go home.
Penalty kicks could be a possibility.
If we're tied after 90 we'll see how the final 45 play out the halftime report coming your way Next.
Stay tuned for that.
I'm appreciate you guys tuning into tonight's broadcasts.
I'll be back in a moment.
All right, everyone, welcome into the halftime report.
Thank you, Joe, for joining the broadcast 11 The score.
After 45 minutes, the lights are on in Orlando, Florida, and look at that on the San Jose Earth right outside the earthquake stadium in San Jose, California The fans having a driving watch party, and we're enjoying themselves quite a bit after that opening goal.
But not excitement was probably short lived, as RSL would tie it up just a minute later.
And speaking of those goals, let's go over the highlights quickly.
So in the 21st minute, beautiful finish from Christian Espinosa down the right hand side to the far post, meeting that math could.
I'm better with it right underneath his right arm.
But it was a dirt deserving first goal, in my opinion for San Jose, and things were looking good until right off the kickoff.
After that goal.
Ah, horrible mistake from Kasha.
We're in the ball it over his shoulder.
Let left Martinez all by himself on a breakaway.
And as Daniel Vega was closing in, it was a beautiful chip over ***ue up to finish that one and equalize things that one apiece.
And that's the score after 45 it's coming up next.
I'll let you guys listen into an interview with the CONCACAF president.
It should be an interesting conversation.
It's coming your way. Next, stay tuned.
It's the MLS is back tournment around of 16 halftime report live on SportsCastr.
I'll be back in a moment.
Welcome back into the broadcast, Everybody gold a week goes to jurors.
So Fernandez and wanted Kolet Waas on the left footage strike that actually defeated this very rail Salt Lake team that is playing.
And now here comes interview with the CONCACAF president.
I will turn it up so you guys can listen in as part of this halftime report.
Vancouver and the old hacks is no war.
So why the decision to expand that final group stage of qualifying nations from 6 to 8? Well, it was a whole, uh, myriad of factors when was we could not finish the process of, um, finishing off the mark in June, which would finish the old formats.
With respect to the FIFA ranking, we came up with a format that expanded the final around from 60.
We honor the five teams that I already across the lines from a ranking standpoint, and then we figure out a system of two rounds for the remaining 30 to fight for those last three spots to get into the final round.
Uh, it's being very well received by our members.
They they see this as a for the ones that fancy themselves.
The legitimate shot of getting one of those three spots, Um, and that also gives the ones that are probably not as far along develops her on opportunity to play for anywhere from 46 games.
I returned themselves for what they're probably eyeing, which is more of a ***, nations that better position or of the Gold Cup itself.
So I think it's hit the hit, the nail on the extra for for all of our members.
Victor with the with the short time we have left, obviously, 2026 looms large and large in the future, and you see any things that you are doing right now that will have ramifications in that ramp way up to 2026 for the Joint World Cup between Mexico, Canada and the U. S.
Yeah, the organization is still going on.
Obviously, there's a lot of work that's behind the scenes, but from a conga cat respect that we're trying to prepare our region so that when we come to 2026 don't want another real spaces there, but we will have five other nations that qualify, Uh uh, uh, to the World Cup.
So we have eight conquer cap nations.
The only way we're gonna do that is by having more competitions, more opportunities and more possibilities for our countries.
And I think over the next six years you're with that lift operation are go legal nations, and obviously not expanded.
You're gonna see those opportunities for for further development for our nations, Victor.
Thanks for the time.
Congratulations on finally coming to terms with a pathway towards World Cup 2022.
Thanks, guys. Take care.
There you have it.
The CONCACAF president right there discussing what went into the change in the World Cup qualifying in Conca Cap.
It's no longer the hexagonal.
It's now the octagonal.
Look for joining the broadcast Much.
I'll be back after this short break.
The second half on the way.
In this round of 16 matchup in The ****yst is back.
Tournament San Jose one rail Salt Lake one.
You won't want to miss the fun of 45 minutes.
It's up next. I'll be back in a moment.
Welcome back and everybody reminder that the MLS is background of 16.
Doubleheader tonight continues at 11 p.m.
Eastern time, when the Seattle Sounders face off against L.
A f c and what should be an absolute epic battle between the two teams that met in the Western Conference final last year.
But first we got business toe complete in the first game of the doubleheader and it's 10 to 3 and shots San Jose.
But the score 11 Nick Romano tweeting in saying, We need to get our guys on the ball more, he said.
Also, it's easy to say that from my couch.
Being on the field slash sideline brings other obstacles.
Nick enjoying retirement life, Of course.
The former in longtime RSL goalkeeper himself retired at the end of last season but watching his former team play with keen interest from his home, giving tips toe what his team should do to improve upon that first half performance.
Second half underway from Orlando, Florida it's San Jose now, going from right to left to kick things off, RSL going from left to right in all the play for here in the second half in the final 45 minutes and Jose and white RSL and red rumor penalty kicks would be needed if this result were to hold at the end of the 90 minutes.
But we still got so much more time left in this game that that is far that that is, Ah, not part of the discussion right now, I should say, but and maybe as we progress, I'll keep you updated on what would be the procedures if it were to be tied at the end of regulation.
But, as I mentioned, still hold other half to be plate, and I have a feeling there might be some more goals in it.
By the way, there was 1/2 time substitution.
Jones came in for Toyota at the break.
So for any war is designed to make 1/2 time substitution.
Remember, each team has five available to make.
It will be Nick Lima to take the throne for the Earthquakes.
It's now it's taken away.
We played back by Andy Rias given away to RSL as glad goes back to McMath.
McMath sends this one well across midfield.
You're now is Jackson.
You'll nick Lima down the left hand side.
Yes, that is correct.
That is correct.
Yep, That is the name of the Concord CAF President Thompson controls.
Now it's with Ericsson Ericsson with a good through ball and a shopper behind a penalty kick awarded to the Earthquakes.
Tommy Thompson taken out in San Jose with a chance to take back the lead they had earlier in the game.
This was a beautiful pass from Magnus Eriksson.
Gorgeous ball through Tommy Thompson making the run.
Ah, push from behind and quite an easy decision in the end for the referee.
And let's see if the Earthquakes can take advantage of the shot from the penalty spot.
It was Jones who just came in at the half for rail Salt Lake that commits the foul, and it's Erickson and take the corner.
My thoughts on his interview think it was good.
Yeah, you explained it well.
McMath jumping up and down Erickson with the runoff van.
It's just barely a gold.
McMath got a hand to it, but enough power generated, and it's for the San Jose Earthquakes.
Tommy Thompson taken down in the box.
Ericsson converts from the spot.
McMath did everything he could possibly do.
He guessed the right way.
Got a fingertip to that one with a slight touch on it.
But enough power generated from Ericsson and looked like a sigh of relief in the end from him that that ball found the back of the net.
Matias Almeyda fired up a 45 minute goal from the penalty spot.
Gives the Earthquakes the lead their second lead of the night.
Let's see if they can hold on to it.
Ericsson six for six on penalty kicks now Very consistent man from the penalty spot, you have to say, Yup.
The Kong CAF World Qualified World Cup qualifiers do begin in October.
Yes, and the second round starts in March.
So that's when the U. S.
Will come in, flicked on by Ericsson RSL with the ball now.
Rusnak looking for Baird.
Nick Lima poked it away.
It will be a throwing for Salt Lake five minutes into the second half and already a goal early on in the final 45 minutes, it will be Aaron Herrera to take the throne.
Throwing is into the box, but had it right back to our era.
Here is now Rusnok.
Good bowling from Moreira.
Looking to control is Martinez who already has a goal on the night.
Herrera gets it back.
Dwight, this cross taken down by Arc, Cindy's clipped afterwards in a free kick given to San Jose.
Yeah, I mean, I don't really mind it of on the the new the new World Cup qualifying format for CONCACAF.
I don't have any issues with it.
I think it's fair, Well, real Salt Lake creating chances here after conceding their second goal of the game a battle here.
Everton with the bicycle kick pass, it almost worked.
Sometimes they eventually come away with possession.
Varco Judson gave it away.
It's now in the midfield with Everton.
Nice dummy there as Rusnok.
Let it go for Aaron Herrera.
Herrera, with the cross and Osvaldo colonies, clears it, but it is a corner kick for RSL.
This is better from Salt Lake applying pressure whenever centers, they get the ball in their own half of the field.
Rustaq will deliver the corner kick, a right footed outswinger.
Now both teams getting into it.
Couple of words exchanged in the box.
Not a lot of social distancing going on.
The referee just waits for them.
Toe behave! They're still going at it, but he gives the go ahead for Rusnak to take the corner kick.
Right footed outswinger.
I was in the traffic, headed clear and now the Earthquakes could make RSL pay on the counter attack investment.
His way through Everton in a free kick goes Salt Lake's away.
Well, you got to love the intensity that both teams are coming out with.
To begin the second half.
It will be taken by the goalkeeper Zach McMath.
Here is Ruiz Ruiz through to Herrera here in Herrera, shielding it away.
Now cutting in towards goal.
He goes down, but the referee said he went down too easily.
Judson a little risky getting that aggressive in the box with Herrera.
But he gets away with it now goes up the line taken down by the chest of anti Rios and it will be a throwing to San Jose.
Oh, the crows lost again in the FL No, not surprised one bit, man.
They seem like they seem like the Red Sox of the A f l.
And now the tempers truly are starting to flare.
Lima having some choice words for Douglas Martinez something Keep an eye on because both these teams really are picking up the intensity.
You're gonna love it, though.
It has the feel of playoff soccer.
In a sense, it is, even though it's a different type of tournament now we've never seen before.
Do the crazy times we're living in here is Baird.
Thompson's all over him, you know.
Four Jones back with Bear Jones looking to get a shot off.
He does so but great defense.
There is that efforts blocked, But we're also like, still with possession as they win a throwing cross headed away by Judson.
Still, it's now Jackson, you will excuse me.
You will to Lima.
Lima will switch it to the far side.
Sorry about that, Von.
I had to get out of Yang right there.
Is Vega here? Is you'll you with a good ball through? But is it on side is the question? Nope.
The flag goes up.
It was a good idea as any Rios was making the run.
Just, uh, a bit in front of that last defender.
You'll did have other options, but decided to play Andy Rios throat.
He was clearly offsides looking back on the replay.
The Earthquakes up by a goal this game far from over the RSL on the attack, Herrera cuts inside on.
It was left foot tryingto cut back to his right.
But it's a great job by Osvaldo Colonies to steal it away.
Here come the earthquakes the other way.
A very open game here at the beginning of the second half.
Look to switch Justin.
Glad there to intercept.
Now it's played up ahead for Aaron Herrera, but Bacho comes out of nowhere to just possess him.
Ericsson, you'll going back and forth now.
You'll allied with Vacco.
It's a great ball laid back to you'll.
You'll allied here.
Is Espinoza looking for two? It was a similar sit goal that he scored a similar opportunity, I should say, as the one where he scored his first goal looking for that back post.
But just why didn't get the cleanest of strikes off? What a great chance Nonetheless for the Earthquakes do I know the A F.
C U hasn't at the Asian Football Confederation? Yeah, that's Thea, the Asian Confederation for Soccer, I believe, and now it's throwing for RSL.
Well, it's a good flick on two Everton and now in with a chance that a big time save right there from Vega want an opportunity right outside the 18 yard box.
It all came from this little flick to Everton and then a great ball from Martinez to the wide open, demure Crile acrylic, who's been very quiet tonight at a great chance.
But Vega extends to make the save.
It's now a corner kick for Salt Lake and a lot going on in the box.
Yet again, the corner apparently was off of a Salt Lake player, last as a throne is awarded to the Earthquakes at the hour mark to no one say knows they lead.
You won't want to miss these final 30 minutes, folks.
This has been a very entertaining game, and this is just the appetizer to what should be a thriller between Seattle and LFC.
Although this is turning out to be more than appetizer, this has provided plenty of entertainment.
A little nutmeg.
They're working on the far size Christian Espinosa Espinosa, now cutting towards the middle Espinosa, Louisa to the near side.
Here is Vacco, vodka into the box, Vocal on it was left foot the shot, though one that didn't generate any power right into the hands of Zach McMath McMath of the risky ball rolled tobacco.
Bacho shot was blocked, but it was gonna be a routine save if it had if it had not been blocked.
But you're is another chance.
Cut back to Bocconi taps it in goal.
And there is the third goal for the San Jose Earthquakes.
It started off of a mistake from McMath's vodkas.
Original shot was blocked, but then San Jose retained possession, and they just made it look too easy through the RSL defense.
Who was that? Offsides of the question, though, was Andy Rio soft sides.
If he wasn't the goal stand, that was a great cut back to the middle with Morocco, and all Varco had to do.
There was tap it in the back of the net.
He was left wide open, but I'm sure this one will be checked by V. A R.
It's a 61st minute goal from Bacho that makes it a 31 game, at least for now.
If the gold does indeed stand and the gold does indeed stand.
B A R took a look at it and not offsides.
According So the guys looking at the monitors up in the V A R Room.
It's a two goal lead for San Jose RSL, with some questionable defending that has put them in this hole a big mountain to climb now for Salt Lake, down by two with 28 minutes plus remaining.
And really, before that third goal from San Jose, it it felt like Raila Salt Lake were improving.
When it came to creating more opportunities, it seemed like if anyone was gonna score next, it would be RSL who would tie it up.
That didn't turn out to be the case.
And now real Salt Lake, with plenty of work to do here in the final in the final third of this game here is Tommy Thompson.
Any Rios lost track of the ball, and it was Corrie Baird who came up with the steal.
Maybe a chance for RSL.
They've got numbers up, feel that struggles Martinez with a good ball throw and want to say by Vega, it's cry like once again with a chance.
But Vega denies, um, for the second time in about five minutes, what a chance it is 3 to 1.
San Jose 321 ST as they just got their third goal tonight.
But rail saw like not not slowing down one bit.
Cry like with another great opportunity, they quickly gets down.
It was right side to make the save.
Now the ensuing quarter kick will be taken by Albert Trusnik, the referee first as a quick word with the players in the box.
Now the corner kick, taken bigger, got a punch away, but only as far as Ruiz Ruiz out wide.
What again? This is turning out to be.
You just feel like there's more fireworks that are coming our way in the final half hour.
Free kick into the Earthquakes.
They want to play quickly, but RSL not letting them do so.
The referee has a little laugh.
321 The Earthquakes.
This is the score of the game.
I called last night between Toronto and my CFC and I CFC winning that game, but there's still a lot more time left in this one.
I just have a feeling there's more goals coming this long ball nearly captain play.
There's a good effort from Christian Espinosa, but a goal kick in the end for RSL in the 65th minute.
All right, you're now is Justin.
Glad? Glad finds Marcello Silva.
That's a bad ball.
Playing to the other side by glad an unforced error there leads to a San Jose.
Yeah, San Jose didn't have three more days off leading into this game.
I mean, it's just unlucky with the scheduling, because RSL played on Wednesday, San Jose played last Sunday.
They've had seven days off before this game.
Here comes the yellow card.
Glad was taken out.
Do I watch the c f o African football? African soccer? Yeah, I like the African Cup of Nations.
I enjoy that tournament.
Yeah, that's pretty much the, um Oh, yeah, What a challenge there and a yellow card given to glad.
Oh, yeah, no doubt, no doubt.
Absolutely took out Espinosa Espinosa's such a, um, such a key part of the San Jose team.
He's definitely impressed me this tournament, but he is down and quite a bit of agony.
We're gonna see Justin Meram, the former Columbus Crew player, come on to the pitch for RSL.
San Jose have yet to make a substitution so far tonight.
Justin Miram will. Come on.
We'll see who makes way Espinosa still down.
It's not looking too good right now.
All right, It's gonna be a double substance.
We're gonna see Baird and Ruiz come off.
We're going to see along with Meryl Beckerman.
To Kyle Beckerman.
Still in the league was his 21st season.
He's pretty much better than last.
Just about since the start of the league.
Not quite, but just about yeah, going back to the goal from the aerial camp.
Yeah, it all started from a bad rule by McMaster that gave it away to the earthquakes.
You know, rsl just caught watching.
I couldn't tell who it was from that angle.
But whoever leads from around Salt Lake, I believe it was Silva.
He put his arm up asking for offsides while not even paying attention.
Yeah, was Silva well, not even even paying attention to Vacco, who just zoomed right by him and was left wide open? That's just poor defense.
Espinosa is back onto his feet, which is a good sign for San Jose fans.
It will be Beckerman who comes on for Everton, Louise and Bared comes off for Mira Santas.
They played short on the free kick.
You're now Eriksen from a ways out.
It was an ambitious effort.
It was wide left 3/4 through this game.
31 lead for the Earthquakes over RSL.
It's a good looking ball through the cross towards the back post.
Nobody there for RSL.
And it's clear the way by the Earthquakes.
What about the OSC on now? No, I don't watch the O.
F C von the Oceanian Football Confederation.
Australia's in the isn't even in the FC.
They're part of the A F C.
So the best team in the NFC is New Zealand.
That's just a bunch of those islands in the Pacific Ocean.
Yeah, I don't watch any any games in the O. F. C.
It's not good quality, really, to be quite honest with you, I mean, they only get like half of birth to the World Cup.
It's always New Zealand wins the UFC qualifiers, and then they have to play in a playoff to even get in Nice first touch from Lima Lima with a ball play to a dangerous area.
The shot wasn't the best one.
Those still on the front foot here, here is Magnus Eriksson.
Ericsson will switch it.
Villain Australia should be in the O.
F. C. I don't know why they aren't.
I think they used to be.
And, yeah, they used to be an.
And then, for whatever reason, they removed to the to the A F. C.
Don't know what event New Zealand were happy.
When that happens.
Trying to curl that one in to the path of Rios was Jackson.
You'll not quite able to do so.
This game really opening up here is Aaron Herrera Herrera out wide.
It's now Douglas Martinez with the crossing.
Now it's headed out of danger.
Now it's Ruiz Ruiz past just makes its way through.
His passing traffic intercepted.
San Jose charging for it.
It's Espinosa who will hold up play and now send it back to garam kasha, the Georgian, not from the state of Georgia, the country of Georgia that is colonies to Vega.
Thank you, everyone for tuning in these knockout stage games haven't disappointed thus far.
This is another example of that.
Now here is Jackson you'll or pass is you'll was looking for the return ball Delaema on the 12 and now our first substitution that last is made by Matias Almeyda.
It will be Fierro coming in for Christian Espinosa May ask me, knows it won't be able to continue with that injury he picked up unfortunately, because I think he's been the best player on the pitch tonight for San Jose got himself a goal.
And with this change and ah Espinosa having to be attended to once again with that injury, it's a perfect time to take the second half hydration break.
And that's exactly what they'll dio our human night, as it always is all summer long in Orlando, no matter what time of day it is, even at three in the morning.
The humanities Quite a ah, quite a factor.
Yeah, you eighth unconquerable are are the Yeah, they have really good quality soccer.
That's those that those are the two best, um, federations when it comes to quality of soccer Yeah, Congo Gaffe.
I mean, there's not enough good good countries, good teams and conquer calf.
But you know it does us isn't conquer caps.
So exactly I I still way still watch it quite a bit there.
Are there some good tea? Good teams.
Just not enough like incomparable.
And and, uh, then you wait from other so many good teams and conquer caf.
There's just there's just not enough really quality teams.
And in the second half, there's been one goal and it came from Rather has been two goals.
The 3rd 1 coming from Bacho, the 2nd 1 coming in the early stage of the second half from the penalty spot.
Oh, Espinosa's still out there.
He was attended to for a second time.
But you're going to continue that.
Even they even put up on the board that there was a change being made.
He was coming out.
Fox Sports put up the graphic and all, but apparently not you're back.
What's good, Josh? Thanks for coming back.
A matter e. I appreciate a bank.
I appreciate you coming back in 75th minute.
This will go all the way back for Zach McMath.
Yes, it does matter.
Indeed, it's a good through ball.
Can are still making to Yes, they can be Oh, finally Dimier cry like puts it home.
He was denied twice off of good saves from Vega just within the last 15 minutes, but it's perfectly placed by Dimier.
Cry like it was a great ball through a nicely time to run from Cry like and he slots this one home one time.
Finished with his left foot of the far post.
Its came on from Orlando 3 to 2.
RSL right back in it with 15 minutes ago.
One more goal from RSL on penalty kicks would be needed, all right, so make sure that they quickly retrieve the ball because it's sure is game on their very much so still in it.
And now Espinosa will come off.
You can tell he's in quite a bit of pain.
I was surprised, didn't take him off at the hydration break, but now he is off.
So at last zero does enter for Espinosa that changes official now It officially happened.
Espinosa's off zero in.
And how about this, folks? RSL within one of San Jose, three to the score.
You will not want to miss this final quarter of an hour I will say I'll guarantee that for you, Justin Meram Now with it.
Indeed, A big goal.
Now here is Marum still with it at the corner flag? Yes, it to the feet of Kyle Beckerman.
Yeah, I'm sure that did say Hkifa while Backerman, with the ball in Kashia is there at the near post to send it away? Yeah, maybe a bit too Money.
Maybe a bit too many l's, but I like the excitement here now.
Is Erickson looking to go down the line? Sent out a play? A throwing for the earthquake.
All right, we're going to see the all time leading goalscorer them in MLS.
Chris Wondolowski come in.
We know what he can do off the bench.
Um, and you don't have to bring up the revolution, Josh.
That was their only loss of the tournament.
That that Ah, the other night.
But the knockout stage one loss is all is all it takes for you to be knocked out.
What about your team, Josh? Into Miami? Come on, Owen. Three.
So you can't be talking.
Oh, it's a good move, Marum Moving forward.
Judson got a touch on it.
Alright, Cells still with the ball.
Now it's Justin.
Glad Bruce Arena hates to smile healthy.
Yeah, that's very true.
You got a red card at the end of the at the end of the game against the Union Early cross by Martinez sent away.
RSL, though, have really picked up the Mo Mentum here since getting that second goal here is Ruiz.
Ruiz finds Martinez Martinez at the end line.
Lost this one towards the penalty spot.
Not a lot of power generated, though, on the heading heading effort from Jones, the left back who came in at half time for RSL.
Hey, I will take away.
I'll take a little while for Inter Miami Teoh to become a good team.
They'll they'll, they'll get there.
They'll get some star names just because you know their own by, um, David Beckham and they're in there in Miami.
We'll get some Bill to get some big names from Europe and they'll become a good team.
It's It's always gonna be a struggle at first as an expansion team and last year Atlanta United for you went on the last Cup in your second here.
Fear are looking for the cross, not sat Savak.
Baku Bacho went down too easily.
Ruiz won it for RSL.
You know that That now that Z I mean, you've got a point.
You've got a point.
Um yeah, but no.
Boston is not a great destination for when it comes to weather.
Yeah, that's that's definitely true.
That's that's part of Miami.
The attraction to Miami.
For someone like maybe Ronaldo in the future, Thompson will come off.
Salinas comes in.
Salinas, of course, scored the game winner against Vancouver in the group stage 44 to 3 that game Waas.
So Salinas comes in also see one the last becoming actually a triple change here from a TSL made Here come the substitutions.
Cow will come in for Vasco.
There comes Wondolowski, the tucked in shirt and all you know he's in.
Throwing is a long one in the box cause she didn't Didn't make it easy, clearing that one away, but eventually able to do so.
That's a foul committed from behind by Nick Lima.
Yes, deaf Might might be underrated, perhaps.
Yeah, though FC is bad.
I agree with you on that.
Rusnok with the deliberate it was a good looking ball in San Jose, able to clear it out of danger, By the way, trying to figure out who want Alaska came in for.
Yeah, he came in for Andy Rios.
So Andy Rios makes way for Wondolowski.
That's what I thought just wanted toe confirm.
Oh, it was going upper vite just over the bar.
That would have been quite the goal goal of the week.
It would have been if it found the back of the net.
You have to think rsl making things interesting to the final whistle here.
Just a one goal game.
Yeah, I We'll see what they do about about the Marlins, Bond.
I know they've postponed their next to well tonight and tomorrow as of right now, but yeah, we'll have to wait and see.
Yeah, they pretty much did lose 40% of their roster.
Gonna have toe play their minor leaguers as we're in the 83rd minute can I will came in substitute with a burst of energy for San Jose.
It's Aaron Herrera looks towards the middle too much on the past, and now it's a beautiful switch from Magnus Eriksson.
How about that ball out wide? It's picked up by fear up.
Salinas went down.
Nothing given Here come RSL the other way.
He's still going now it's ruse, Nick on the ball, multiple sliding challenges.
And that is a red card red card given in RSL will be down a man for the rest of the night.
That was a vicious challenge from Marco Silva.
Red card given to mark to Ah, none.
Marcello Silver, that is Oh, man, you have no doubt about it.
Let's see the replay here.
Oh, man, no doubt.
No doubt that's clearly a red right there he went, studs up studs through the thigh of Jackson.
You'll and we all saw Lake make it tougher on themselves for the final minutes down a man that could be costly here in the 85th minute.
Not a pleasant look on the face of Freddy Juarez right now.
Jeff Passan was freaking out today on ESPN.
Really? Really Well, Oh, man, this was awful.
That checks off all the categories of a read of what the definition of a red card is.
And Magnus Eriksson was not pleased with that challenge from Silva.
Luckily, it's does seem like you'll is all right, So it will make his way out of the field area.
Like playing with 10 men? Yeah.
You're really bringing the jokes, aren't you, Josh? Indeed, indeed.
You're on tonight.
All right. Here is Magnus Eriksson.
Ericsson find Salinas in space out wide.
Salinas going one B one with Miram.
Find space in the ball.
Trickled over the line.
Go and guess who is Crest.
Wanna Wachowski? Mr Super Saw makes it for And surely that's the dagger.
Wana Lasky just has a knack for scoring dozen eight.
This cross was poorly dealt with by McMath.
You let up an awful rebound.
It should basically went off the foot of one Alaskan over the line.
That's a goal Scorers goal right there.
Just office shin and then won the last.
You will take it when you're Chris Wondolowski.
The leading goal scored MLS.
You get goals in many different ways and sometimes lucky nous is involved and it sure was on that occasion.
86 minute goal from the substitute.
Chris Wondolowski has made it 4 to 2 with three minutes until stoppage time.
And surely that will punch a ticket in the quarterfinals.
For Santa is that.
And now the Earthquakes Looking for five? This is flicked on by Wanda Lasky.
A battle for it here.
Cattle trying to come up with the steal cowl has brought plenty of energy out there since coming in as a substitute.
There's Earthquakes Team.
Well, they could score goals, that's for sure.
Didn't score any in their opener, but they've scored plenty since they scored four against Vancouver for tonight.
They might be a surprising turn of maybe the Earthquakes could be a team that makes a deep run them in.
Sporting KC are the two to keep an eye on.
Now here is Cal Cow with the Cross Wondolowski with a late run It gets on the end of it at the edge of the box.
Now it since a Fiero zero Towanda.
Lasky, you find Salinas and Wondolowski thought he was off so he let it go.
Gold kick for RSL Oh, Chris Wondolowski scored mine The invest that you were in the bathroom A man You went to the bathroom at the wrong time, But yeah, it was Chris Wondolowski who scored for San Jose off the bench.
Coming up next, it's Seattle versus L.
Well, this was quite the appetite of that game.
Hopefully, that game is just as if not more entertaining, this one.
But this these two teams have set the bar high for that late game between Seattle and LFC.
You hate when you had to pee during a soccer game.
I know, right? You don't have the benefit of commercial breaks.
I know I'm with you.
Sometimes I'll say to myself, I'm all right.
I got to use the bathroom.
I'll go at the next Next time it's out of play.
But it's just so fast paced is that like? And if the game is a great one, you know you don't wanna You don't want to stop, Daiki Rose for you don't want to want leave for any for and miss a second.
Thank you Rose for joining the broadcast.
Much appreciated around the 16 action in the MLS is back tournament tonight, coming to you live on SportsCastr as we're into the 90th minute through Fisher just I had a word there for Daniel Vega.
Gold kept coming up for Santas.
They will see how much time is tacked onto the 90 year San Jose plays the winner of Columbus in Minnesota.
That game will take place tomorrow night.
I think that should be a heck of a game.
I'll be on the call for that one, the final round of 16 game that I'll be on the call for that.
It's on to the quarterfinals as we get to the latter stages of what's turned out to be a thrilling tournament.
Ambitious chip there, dealt with by McMath.
You'll put it down on the ground on this feat.
RSL need numbers forward here.
They need a goal sooner, rather later to get themselves back into it.
Down by two in a stoppage time.
Six minutes added on six more minutes still left in this game, RSL cling onto a bit of hope, but not much.
Now, a substitution will be made and it will be.
Judson coming off just didn't have his best night.
It was a decent performance from Judson, and it will be young worth coming in.
Young Worth started a few games in the group stage.
I don't think I can't remember.
I think two of the three group stage games, although I cannot remember.
Don't take my word on it.
But he was in the starting lineup for Ah earlier in the tournament.
You get some minutes in the late in the final few minutes.
I should say this one.
This is now taken to the byline by Martinez Martinez.
With it on the sideline, this cross takes a deflection and a collision in the box down for RSL went Amir cry like I look still down.
It will be in RSL corner kick.
We're into the 92nd minute.
Let's see here you took a bump from behind by colonies, but not enough for a penalty kick.
According to the referee in this corner kick not tell.
With easily by RSL and a lot of shoving going on in the box and now both teams going at it.
I am not sure what in the world happened.
There was so much going on.
It's young worth who just came into the game who I ended up going down for San Jose.
Let's see the replay here.
Yeah, Miram did nothing wrong cause she had in between his legs.
He was putting himself at risk there.
Miran was just trying to get in on goal.
And then he just got tangled up there with Young worth.
And that's what led Teoh the altercations.
Anyways, we play on no punishments given with that whole incident or halfway through stoppage time.
Three to go in this one.
You're a sour, broken fan.
All right, There you go, Von.
Thanks for tuning in, everyone.
Uh, the Red Sox are only down by three.
Maybe they can come back in the ninth.
You'll give me your favorite Bundesliga team.
All right, here now is Erickson.
****ne has had a solid performance on the night.
Now it's Salinas.
Maybe a handball now a corner kick.
I might have went off the end of Kyle Beckerman right there.
I thought it did it first.
Look in real time, but apparently not.
That wasn't the case.
What? Over 90 seconds left sandals.
They will take their sweet time on this corner.
R is taking a look, and actually the referee himself is gonna look at the monitor.
I think it was a handball.
I haven't seen a replay yet, But clearly VR is Ah.
Definitely thinks it could be a handball cause they're telling the referee to look himself at the mother.
Yeah, There were this right there.
His hand is way out.
He only needed one look, Fisher.
And there were There is penalty kick given the second the night for San Jose.
And the night just gets worse for rail Salt Lake.
That's about as obvious as it gets.
No question about it.
All right? Yeah, but sour broken isn't in the Bundesliga.
Von so l and look at this.
It will be another penalty kick taken by Ericsson.
Can you make it two for two? Yes, he can.
And that will do it.
That will put send Jose Earthquakes into the quarterfinals.
How about that? Magnus Eriksson has been phenomenal tonight, two for two from the penalty spot.
And that 2nd 1 was much more convincing in the 1st 1 as McMath guess the wrong way.
5 to 2 of the earthquakes lead seven goals in this game.
It will be the Earthquakes moving on.
Erickson has two goals and an assist.
Make two penalty kicks in one game, but he's done that tonight.
They get Karam for joining the broadcast.
The final whistle will come any second.
Now Beckerman is going to get Ben given Iran.
Kyle Beckerman has been sent off its two red cards for Real Salt Lake, and this is getting way out of hand for RSL, and the final whistle has gone.
So that's how the game ends.
A Kyle Beckerman red card.
A very strange ending to what became a frustrating ending.
Salt Lake Beckerman walks off in disgust, the substitute 2nd 1 to pick up a red card.
So two red cards RSL two penalty kicks for San Jose and find it to the final score.
This game had everything in it.
San Jose Not happy with rail.
Some players on rail Salt Lake, but everything seems to be calm down.
San Jose advances to the quarterfinals.
Wow, how about that for an appetizer to the nightcap? The much anticipated nightcap? Well, they get the update. MLS is back.
Philadelphia will take on Sporting Kansas City in the quarter finals and why CFC awaits the winner of Portland. Cincinnati.
Orlando awaits the winner of tonight's game between Seattle and LFC and then San Jose, the new addition to the teams advancing to the quarterfinals will play the winner of Minnesota in Columbus tomorrow night.
Man of the match.
Well, it goes to Vacco, who had one of those five goals for the Earthquakes.
Coming up next is the Seattle Sounders taken on Los Angeles Football Club.
That should be a great one, but that will do it for me tonight as I am Samuel re signing off saying so long here on SportsCastr.
