The San Jose Earthquakes’ beautiful run in the MLS Is Back tournament came to a crashing end Saturday.
Minnesota United disrupted the Quakes’ potent offense to score a dominating 4-1 victory in a quarterfinal game at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex near Orlando, Florida.
United will face Orlando SC (2-1-2, overall) on Thursday for a trip to the tournament championship Aug.12. Orlando advanced to the semifinals past favored Los Angeles FC in a penalty shootout on Friday.
San Jose (2-2-2 overall) suffered its first defeat of the tournament and heads home not knowing what happens next. Major League Soccer executives have yet to announce if the regular season will resume as the United States struggles to control the novel coronavirus outbreak.
In the past two years, Minnesota has owned San Jose by winning all four of their matches, including a 5-2 victory at Earthquakes Stadium on March 7.
It was more of the same Saturday night.
“The secret is, try and keep them at bay for long enough periods and maybe get a goal on the counterattack, and work from there,” Minnesota coach Adrian Heath said before the game. “Because, as they proved in this tournament, once they get a head of steam up, they’re very difficult to stop.”
Not that difficult for Minnesota as the Loons have now outscored San Jose 9-3 in two games this season.
Heath had an effective game plan to ensure it stayed that way. For much of the game, the Earthquakes looked unnerved by Minnesota’s pressure.
San Jose had become a league-wide favorite with an usual tactical style that often causes chaos on the field. The Quakes made soccer look fun as they ran past opponents and battered goalkeepers with shot after shot.
But Minnesota out San Jose’d San Jose with a high-pressure, opportunistic attack on Saturday. The Earthquakes’ defense looked shaky from the kickoff because United stayed turned it into a game of chase.
Although San Jose had possession 64.5 percent of the time, Minnesota had 13 shots on target to the Quakes four.
The statistical categories told the story of the game.
It fell apart for San Jose in a 90-second stretch in the first half when Minnesota took a 2-0 lead on goals from Robin Lod and Jacori Hayes. Both scores came from close range when the already agitated San Jose defense collapsed.
Lod scored after a corner kick fell to Hassani Dodson outside the penalty area. He served the ball to Minnesota’s Jose Aja who headed it across the goal as Lod slipped by the Quakes’ Judson to pop it in.
Hayes scored in the 21st minute after goalkeeper Daniel Vega blocked a shot from Ethan Finlay but failed to control the rebound. Hayes tapped that one in.
For a brief period San Jose recovered to start the second half. Before Minnesota could relax Magnus Eriksson had scored on a penalty kick to cut the lead in half.
Referee Jair Marrufo awarded the PK in the 50th minute after a video review confirmed a handball on Hayes while he tried defending Tommy Thompson in the penalty area.
The Loons regrouped six minutes later, though, to take a 3-1 lead on Luis Amarilla’s third goal in his fifth start. Lod sent a long pass to Amarilla as he raced into the area uncontested for Minnesota’s third easy goal.

But it did not make a difference.
Marlon Hairston scored in the 86th minute to squash any thoughts of a San Jose comeback.

USA :A stir on Twitter for the words of José Sacristán about the monarchy and Pablo Iglesias
Jose Sacristan this saturday in LaSexta Noche the situation of the monarchy and, in particular, of Juan Carlos I, which this week has announced its departure from Spain due to its alleged financial scandals. & nbsp; “data-reactid =” 17 “>“ It’s crappy, it’s unfortunate, it’s choricero. ”With these and many other qualifications, the actor José Sacristán described this Saturday on LaSexta Noche the situation of the monarchy and, in particular, of Juan Carlos I, who this week announced his departure from Spain due to his alleged financial scandals.
the image of the emeritus getting off a private jet in Abu Dhabi, where he has been staying in a luxury hotel since Monday, according to various media. & nbsp; “data-reactid =” 18 “> Very hard words from the actor, who acknowledged feeling” anger “and” shame “upon seeing the image of the emeritus getting off a private jet in Abu Dhabi, where he has been staying in a luxury hotel since Monday, according to various media.
Hilario Pino. & nbsp; “data-reactid =” 19 “>” It hurts me because the outcome of that movie that we started shooting in the Transition could not be more vulgar and regrettable, “said Sacristán, who was interviewed by Hilario Pino.
“I feel a deep anger for this stupid ending and sorry for what is happening,” continued the actor, who says he does not care “if it is flight or not.” “It is the event itself that seems unfortunate to me,” he said, referring to “this crappy thing with commissions and with characters as sinister as Corinna or Villaerjo.” “It cannot be sadder, more painful and more seedy,” he insisted.
Santiago Carrillo raise your head, what would I say now with this about the commissions and these heck and these escapes ”. & nbsp;” data-reactid = “21”> The interpreter considers that “it makes no sense not to say where” the emeritus is ” and he asked himself a final question: “I think, if Santiago Carrillo raised his head, what would I say to him now about the commissions and these heckles and these escapes”.
Later, Sacristán said that he does not believe that “at the moment” the monarchy is “in question” because, he assures, he does not see “within the Spanish left the figure that can truly embody the possibility of making a translation of that magnitude”.
“I do not believe that the figure of King Felipe is threatened and I do not see the republic near at all. It is not because I wanted it or not, but I do not see it close given the relationship of forces and the current circumstance in which we are. I don’t think that’s the urgency, ”said the actor.
Asked about the dissensions on this issue within the coalition government, Sacristán trusts that this “duality” does not “lead to a break because that would be the satisfaction of the right wing.”
Pablo Iglesias “Which, sometimes, far from supporting, what it does is put sticks in the wheel”. & Nbsp; “data-reactid =” 27 “> And he has criticized the” certain desire for leadership “of Pablo Iglesias” that, to sometimes, far from supporting, what he does is put sticks in the wheel ”.
“There is a Pablo Iglesias who suffers from what a friend of mine used to call the impatience of the bad apprentice. There is an assessment of the situation in which the management of political reality does not do it with the proper adjustment, from my point of view ”, he stated.
Words for which the actor has been a ‘trending topic’ for much of Sunday due to criticism from those who defend Iglesias and those who have come out to defend Sacristán:
It is to open Twitter and see an embarrassing competition between those who defend the king on the run and those who attack José Sacristán for speaking his mind. Both close rows where cracks open.https: //t.co/1VUZzWcB48

All my support for José Sacristán and his freedom of expression, all my admiration for his career and for his political coherence. The leader’s tough defense, down to the last comma, without a hint of dissent or humor, is not typical of a left that pretends to be useful

Look, with all this criticism of José Sacristán, it is clear how alone Podemos has remained in his dogma of the undisputed leaders.
Sacristán is getting waxed by bots and zombies, most of the people on the left defend him. The dome of Podemos is alone
– Juan Soto Ivars (@juansotoivars) August 9, 2020
I go on Twitter.
I see people stoning the immeasurable José Sacristán for stating the obvious that Pablo Iglesias has an inordinate desire for leadership.
I leave Twitter.
How lazy. # Agosto2020

José Sacristán is no fool, and he is no façade. But he has the same unbearable defects of all Spanish artistic myths, he believes that his is the word of God. And he is wrong a lot. And since he says that @PabloIglesias is egocentric, he should also be more humble.

The libertarians of Twitter, daddy’s kids, posh shit, attacking José Sacristán and doubting his militancy.
No one can doubt the beloved leader, whoever goes off the wrong script is automatically a traitor to his cause. Jug Maoism.

José Sacristán, our particular Sartre, affirms that in the transition communists, socialists, anarchists and monarchists closed ranks. When it comes to third parties, you must have very unique sources of information. I will have to withdraw my books from circulation.

I have spent almost 1 hour reviewing the TT “Jose Sacristan”
I have not seen ordas podemitas calling him faça
Those who are in the thousands, are the ones who say we say it
José Sacristan calls himself a communist; That is why many of us were surprised by his speech, a little.
A hug Don José!
– Dada (@RimanimeRibas) August 9, 2020
I had not seen this of the hordes against José Sacristán. @ PabloIglesias, @pnique, @IreneMontero if you are going to lead a party insulting your voters, better assume that you are going to stay with a fan club and finish sooner.
You are not losing followers, you are kicking them out! Penalty https://t.co/9RzZXERXK1

José Sacristán fought for freedom, another thing is the Twitter spokesmen who preach freedom but then do not allow anyone to think freely. Today: the Podemos hooligans who fight for a very totalitarian freedom, right? Either you follow my argument or attack. Almost daily

When a supposed “communist” like José Sacristán, accepts the monarchy, and criticizes Pablo Iglesias for his “desire to be a protagonist”, you realize that we are closer to 75 than to 78 …
And that we have not lost 40 years with respect to Europe, but 85. pic.twitter.com/b9HyOuEmgL

What José Sacristán has said has a context and a discourse.
You can want Republica and think that there are no conditions for it to happen. You may want the government to continue being what it is and think that Pablo Iglesias is self-centered.
So what https://t.co/MiJAaC72ii
– ladypalo (@ladypalo) August 9, 2020
José Sacristán, a supposed “communist” who agrees with the monarchy, and who criticizes Pablo Iglesias for his “desire to take center stage”, counts as a guest from the left for @SextaNocheTV. Disgusting.
