Fire Outmatched in First SuperLiga Game 5-1

morelia vs. fire

When someone says, “I’ve never felt something like this before,” they are usually not making reference to a game. However, defender C.J. Brown was referring to just that, as the Chicago Fire were routed by Monaracas Morelia.

Head coach Carlos de los Cobos added, “It’s the worst game I’ve ever seen since joining the Chicago Fire.”

The Fire looked out of sorts from the gates, letting in an easy goal by Monaracas’ Elias Hernandez only three minutes into the game. Morelia controlled possession throughout the first half and were able to find holes in the banged up Fire defense.
