The Vancouver Whitecaps played two friendly matches today against the Chicago Fire and Indy Eleven. In the first match the ‘Caps played a stronger side while the second match was mostly contested by young players and academy trialists.
The more experienced side managed to beat Chicago 3-2 thanks to a Lucas Cavallini brace and one goal from Cristian Dájome. There is zero correlation between pre-season results and regular season results so we won’t get to bogged down in the scoreline. What does matter is the way the Whitecaps played and what their strengths and weaknesses were.
