Tate Steinlage was inserted into our starting lineup, and unlike Sporting KC we didn't fade in the second half. The show starts off with a discussion of Zlatan, and quickly moves to how a fatigued SKC couldn't keep building on three solid halves of soccer. Andreu Fontas returned to the lineup in unspectacular fashion. Filipe Gutierrez missed chance after chance, and the Croizet Experience was in full effect.
