After seven matches without a loss, Minnesota United was shockingly poor in their 2-0 loss at the Colorado Rapids. Certainly not a time to panic but this was a team that flat and despondent in the loss.

Yes, Minnesota United was hit with recent international call-ups. And there have been some injuries to players for sure that are testing their depth. But Minnesota United was disjointed and lacked shape defensively in their midweek loss to a good Rapids side.
