Edison Flores’ season with the DC United jersey was not so smooth because he suffered some injuries and was unable to show his best football. This Saturday, the midfielder had a few minutes left in the defeat against Atlanta United and was able to score a goal, which was a discount.
About 60 years later, the Peruvian footballer Drew Schundrich stepped in to replace him. The ‘Orejas’ were unstable as he stepped on the pitch, however he lacked much clarity to create the required scoring chances that would put his team fully close in the fight for points.
Philip dismissed at 75 ‘(2-1), but George Bello again extended Atlanta’s advantage by a few minutes. Despite this, DC United did not lower their hands and aggressively searched for a new goal, which came after a shortcut from the right, which was sufficiently destroyed.
The ball fell on the edge of the spot where Edison Flores appeared, time and space. Without thinking twice, the midfielder delivered a powerful shot with his left foot that was unlikely to react to experienced goalkeeper Brad Kuzan. It was an excellent goal that surprised the fans in the arena.
This was Edison Flores’ second goal of the MLS season, and he had great difficulty blowing the nets. His first touchdown was a 1-0 victory over the Chicago Fire on May 13, 2021. Precisely, it was his first celebration since coming to DC United in 2020.
