Soccer skills and coming from behind in goal scoring is so exciting as a fan to watch, but even better

when you are a player on the come back team. MLS teams fighting their way through a game and

never giving up is one of the best things young players can be taught. 90 minutes in each game, each

minute is worth so much, could be minute 3 or minute 89, that minute of play can be the difference

between a loss or a tie or even that game winning goal. In each of these games you can see the tide of

momentum changing and one team putting pressure on the other, and the pure excitement of a team

coming from behind. Chicago Fire, Seattle Sounders, and FC Dallas show the momentum swing

and how they react to this pressure, do they crumble or come together and respond. [Read more…]

with a foul from Futty, and he was red carded with a send off. With only 10 men the Timbers find the
