  1. Pumped that we are playing New England. I always have felt like this game has so much potential to be a big rivalry match. Now we play them in a big game and I could definitely see Brujo causing some sparks

  2. Charlotte FC just released their name release video (https://www.mlssoccer.com/post/2020/07/22/charlotte-fc-logo-name-announced), and it features moves by both Ilsinho (1:09) and Monteiro (1:15).
