If preseason results are any indication of how the regular season pans out, there might be a lot of Oasis blaring after the final whistle when Minnesota United FC play this year.
The Loons remained undefeated in 2019 MLS Preseason presented by Advocare, defeating the New England Revolution, 1-0, in the opening match of the Orlando City Invitational Saturday at Orlando City Stadium.
Miguel Ibarra scored the game’s lone goal in the 65th minute, capitalizing on a Revs defensive miscue.
There was a nice touch by the folks at Orlando City SC to play "Wonderwall" after the Loons victory.
