FC Miami City Goal Scorers
Craig Campbell 82′
FC Miami City earned their first point of the 2021 season in a 1-1 draw with new foe, Tampa Bay United. The team displayed a strong attacking presence throughout the duration of the game. Multiple crosses into the penalty area by Bryan Bakboord and Ivan Arenas ignited a spark in the team.
The breakthrough goal for FC Miami City came from midfielder Craig Campbell in the 82nd minute. Campbell settled the ball in the middle of a crowded penalty area and directed a shot towards goal past the Tampa Bay United goalkeeper. The FC Miami City bench erupted with excitement, and Campbell celebrated with a backflip surrounded by his teammates.
For the final ten minutes of the game, FC Miami City fought to defend and minimize the offensive pressure from Tampa Bay United, but the heartbreaking game-tying goal from the opposition landed in the back of the net in stoppage time.
Nevertheless, FC Miami City demonstrated their creative abilities and played an exciting game. The team now faces a stint of two away matches against The Villages SC and Tampa Bay United but will return home on June 12th to face FC Florida U23.
