The goalless tie between DC United and Toronto, at the Audi Stadium, was broken shortly after the start of the MLS game. The person responsible for moving the scoreboard was no less than Peruvian Edison Flores, who scored his first goal of the season in the North American League.
Barely in the 7th minute of the first half, the famous ‘Orejas’ entered the area and set first, passing the ball between the legs of goalkeeper Alexander Bono, after a very good pass from his teammate Michael Estrada, from the right.
At DC United, Flores made his debut in this edition of the domestic competition, in his eleventh game, and his tenth as a starting player. It was also his third goal this year, given his goals against Colombia and Ecuador in a Peruvian shirt, in the qualifiers heading to Qatar 2022.
Flores, 28, scored a goal a day after learning that Ricardo Gareca was seen in the friendly against New Zealand as well as for a match against Australia or the United Arab Emirates, in the play-off match of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
The multi-functional footballer will have the opportunity to play again next week, against the New York Red Bulls, and after that, he will have to join the Peruvian team, which will face the New Zealanders in Barcelona and play the playoffs in Doha, Qatar. .
