Orlando City 1-3 Bolton Wanderers

9325
Two games into the tour of America, Bolton Wanderers come away with a resounding win against USL Pro (third division) side Orlando City Soccer Club with a final scoreline of 3-1. The match, in all honesty, was quite boring. Orlando were a tired team as they had a league match just the night before. This report could very easily turn into a critique of Orlando's biblically terrible commentator but let's not go into that... much. Seriously though, Jeff was straight up terrible.

The first goal came by way of SKD who headed in a cross at the next post. Orlando then equalized after the loan signing Luzunaris broke through the defense. Adam Bogdan partly committed, stopping in no man's land and failing to make himself big enough when one on one with the attacker. Pratley then scored his first in a Bolton shirt after a corner kick wasn't cleared out of the box. Prat took his first opportunity and hit the roof of the net. The third and final Bolton goal was actually quite a nice hit by Petrov from distance.

Adam Bogdan played the majority of the match between the posts before making way to Rob Lainton who saw his first action of the American tour. Tom Eaves came on as a late second half substitute for Kevin Davies and actually looked dangerous as a big man in the box. Although he failed to score, there is certainly promise from the youngster.
