REVIEW: The game that the Columbus Crew needed


A break seemed like what the doctor ordered for both Luis Diaz and Gyasi Zardes last night.

Luis Diaz was substituted in at halftime and seven minutes later had the game winning assist.

Gyasi Zardes was substituted in at the 62nd minute, scored a goal two minutes later and a second one seven minutes after that. 

One player who didn't receive a break but perhaps could make a case as deserving one as much as Diaz for subpar play was Pedro Santos. 


Santos was excellent at coming back to make defensive stops, scoring his first goal of 2020, and then a top notch assist on Zardes's first goal.

Yesterday was just what Diaz and Santos needed.

In addition, yesterday was what Gyasi Zardes needed. After starting 2020 with 5 goals in 6 games, Zardes was goalless in the last three games.

Now Zardes is back to 7 in 10.

Columbus were dangerous before Sunday. But, if everyone on the team begins firing on all cylinders watch out MLS.
