In the end, a 3-0 hole was too deep for Atlanta United to dig out from as they were eliminated from the 2020 Concacaf Champions League Wednesday night by Mexican powerhouse Club America. But despite losing the tie, the performance from the Five Stripes was hugely promising and a clear improvement over how the team looked down the stretch of the MLS regular season.
Jackson Conway scored on his debut. Erik Torres, also in his debut, looked lively as he helped create scoring chances. Ezequiel Barco looked fit and refreshed after a break. Fernando Meza and Miles Robinson looked like a solid pairing at the back. And overall the whole team seemed sharp and looking to impress as we all await the formal announcement of Gabriel Heine as the team’s next manager.
