A good result for Miami United to stay in the fight for the second place in the table of the Sunshine Conference.
Miami United took advantage of the experience of Rambo De Leon to win 3 points at home and bring happiness to the loyal La 12 fans.
Miami got their first corner at the 3rd minute, since the beginning they showed that they came into this game ready to get 3 points lead by the experience of former Honduran national team and Serie A player, Rambo De Leon. The corner found Camili in the box who had a shot that went just wide, it was a sign that Miami was going to pressure until they found the back of the net.
At the 6th minute, Camili had a one on one with the beaches keeper but his shot went straight to the keeper.
Beaches responded and at the 7th minutes, Sakamoto who was the most insistent player had a fast counter attack and with a low shot he hit the left lower post.
At the 11th minutes, Lucas Da Silva had a one on one with Alfaro but the shot went close to the left post just a few feet away.
Camili had another one on one with the Beaches keeper and he hit the ball to the center again, it was an easy save.
Rambo De Leon started connecting better with Matias, at the 24th minute Rambo’s great control of the ball and great passes combined well with Matia’s speed, Matias was able to get a through ball and he finished well to put Miami United 1-0 up in the scoreboard. The game was more entertaining, Rambo was using his master touch to get all the attention from the defenders in the middle, while Ezequiel Tejera who usually plays in the middle was playing on the left side, having much more space and creating more chances for Camili and Matias.
One of these combinations between Tejera and Matias found Camili in the box, he controlled well and finished with his left foot in the lower left side. It was 2-0 for Miami United, Beaches looked lost on that period, Rambo De Leon was being a factor in the game having great presence and leadership, the Central American showed why he used to play in Italy’s top
In the second half, at the 47th minutes, Camili has another one on one with the keeper and he hits it soft again; the keeper was able to save the shot with no problem.
At the 60th minute, the game was well fought in the middle, Beaches FC wanted to react and find a goal but the Miami center mid was well handled. After a foul from the middle of the field, Juan Ramirez found a rebound in the box and finished with a well-placed shot in the upper right corner of Alfaro to put the game 2-1. Beaches kept fighting specially with Sakamoto using his good control of the ball and dribbling.
At the 88 minutes, Nacho was able to tap the ball in after a cross from Santa Maria from the left side and put the final 3-1 on the board.
That was it for the night, Miami United FC wins 3 points to stay in second place of the table, next game is on the road on June the 24th at 6pm vs Boca Raton.
