Roundup: MLS Saturday, Kaka To Orlando Almost Official

Claudio Villa

Kaka reiterates his desire to play in MLS, as his friendship with Orlando City SC Owner and indifference to money makes the ultimate destination fairly obvious

Philadelphia Union 1 Montreal Impact 1

The city of Montreal are quickly being introduced to the frustration associated with Frank Klopas tactics. Luckily for L'Impact, Marco Di Vaio rescued a point as he did so often last season. The goal came just minutes after forward Andrew Wenger received a straight red card for his high tackle.

Colorado Rapids 2 Sporting Kansas City 3

A tale of two halves this game was. 0-0 at the half, and it looked like it would end in a draw until Dom Dwyer's last gasp goal gained all three points for SKC. See what a positive relationship with a USL Pro team does guys? DO YOU SEE? Dwyer spent much of last season on loan in Orlando, and now he's winning games for the reigning MLS champs.

Vancouver Whitecaps 2 Houston 1

A packed house, er...place, as in BP Place, watched the Whitecaps get off to an early lead on a rather goofy looking opening goal. Kenny Miller sealed the deal from the penalty spot in the second half.

FC Dallas 2 Portland Timbers 1

Keep Portland weird, even when in Dallas. "Weird" sums up the altercation between Portland's Michael Harrington and Je-Vaughn Watson a few minutes before the half, resulting in red cards for both men. Apparently Harrington tugged at Watson's shirt, which led to a retaliation punch thrown by Watson. Blas Perez put Dallas up at the half only for an unfortunate own goal to help the Timbers level the score.

Real Salt Lake 3 Toronto FC 0

Hey, Toronto spends all that money, why can't we?! They are so aweso...oh wow, they just got drubbed by RSL. The little guys - in terms of payroll - showed that years of proper drafting and scouting can outclass a luxury lineup from time to time. Alvaro Saborio netted a brace, and the defense kept Jermaine Defoe off the score sheet. The big bloody deal even earned himself a yellow card in the 29th minute.

Seattle Sounders 1 Columbus Crew 2

Justin Meram one-upped the Sounder's own Chad Barrett in stoppage time to help Columbus escape the Emerald City with three points. A very suspect penalty was awarded to the Crew in the 58th minute as Djimi Traore fouled Dom Oduro in the box and received a straight red. As I throw up writing the following, I will admit that the Crew are looking awful dangerous in the young season.

San Jose Earthquakes 1 New England Revolution 2

The Quakes unfortunately grasped defeat from the jaws of...a draw. An first half own goal put them behind, but they came level in the second thanks to Wondo. Lee Nguyen played super hero number two of the night, with a stoppage time stunner that resulted in another west coast upset.

Kaka to Orlando still very much on

Thanks to Flavio Augusto Da Silva, midfield attacker Kaka looks to be on his way to MLS next season with Orlando City. The rumor has been swirling for quite sometime and it won't go away. Reading between the lines, it appears AC Milan is ready to head in a different direction, and Kaka is more than willing to oblige. Money doesn't appear to be a factor, and he's 31 years old. Despite the link to Orlando City being rock solid, would you ever want to see Kaka play for the Fire? He may not be the Ballon d'Or winner of old, but he was always entertaining to watch in his prime.
