FC Miami City face Miami Dade FC on Saturday in on of their final pre-season game.
The team worked hard this past week to improve their physical condition and game tactics.
Head coach Wagneau Eloi was content with the hard work the team put together this week at practice, but wants his team to focus on themselves as opposed to getting other sides to do them favours.
The results over the past friendlies have been kind to us, but we can’t keep relying on that, said Eloi. It’s an important game against Miami Dade FC. We’ve got to beat them then we’ll be sitting much better than we are today. We’ve got to stay in our championship this season we will face opponents as good as they are. We have to be prepared.
It will be the first time in our history that we will play against Miami Dade FC.
Miami Dade’s team will be lead by their captain and brazilian superstar Emerson “Puma” Rosa, former captain of the Brazil National team.
We will see tomorrow how the players are doing, said Youri Vaisse – FC Miami City General Manager. Individually they could be the best team in the league but collectively we are very, very good. We do have good players but everybody is buying into this team effort and team culture, and we are all impatient to see that. Vaisse added.
