The task ahead of NYCFC has changed quite significantly in the hours since the fulltime whistle blew in Orlando.

As a result of Nashville’s withdrawal from the tournament, Group A is now comprised of four teams, with Chicago moving out, meaning we now face Inter Miami in our final group game in another 9am kickoff.

Orlando’s late victory vs. Miami on the opening night means that City can keep qualification for the knockouts in their own hands with a win in their next match vs. the host city.

For James Sands, after this defeat, it’s now a must-win game. He told reporters: “They’re going to want to repeat their performance last night. It’s much more important for us so we have to come out with energy and we really have to go for it.

“There’s no holding back at this point. It is a must-win and we need the three points.”
