Crew heads to Utah without injured Meram, Anor, Gruenebaum

The past two weeks, the Columbus Crew team has come alive in all fronts in winning by scores of 2-0 twice.

Two of the reasons for their success has been the play of Bernardo Anor and Justin Meram, who have been getting the ball to scorer Federico Higuain.

After Thursday’s practice, head coach Robert Warzycha said that neither would make the trip to Real Salt Lake due to injuries suffered last weekend vs. Toronto FC.

Also not making the trip west is goalkeeper Andy Gruenebaum.

Meram suffered a back injury after a hard fall and Anor is dealing with fatigue issues and soreness in his right hamstring.

Press release courtesy of Columbus Crew

 

COLUMBUS – The Crew played its first game of the preseason Wednesday at the IMG Academy Fields in Bradenton, Fla., dropping a 2-1 decision to Malmö FF of Sweden. Crew forward Emilio Renteria struck first before Malmö responded through Mathias Ranegie and Jimmy Durmaz to overturn the deficit in a match that consisted of three 45-minute segments.

The Black & Gold got on the board right away, as Dilly Duka dribbled down the field and took a strong shot on goal in the first minute. Malmö goalkeeper Johan Fahlin made the save, then another on Renteria’s first follow, but the Venezuelan’s second effort found the back of the net.

 

In the 24th minute the Swedes equalized, when midfielder Erik Friberg picked up a rebound off a corner kick cleared by Andy Gruenebaum and found an open Ranegie who proceeded to fire the ball past the Crew keeper. Five minutes later Durmaz volleyed another corner kick clearance past Gruenebaum for a 2-1 lead.

 

Malmö nearly increased its advantage in the 33rd minute, but Duka was quick to clear the ball off the line – and two minutes later he initiated the play that almost resulted in an equalizer. The Crew midfielder brought the ball down the left side and found an open Cole Grossman who barely missed his chance.

 

 

 

Crew loses in U.S. Open Cup Final, 2-1 to Sigi Schmid & Seattle Sounders

(MLS)

Sanna Nyassi Seattle Sounders (MLS)

Sanna Nyassi scored two goals as the Seattle Sounders FC defended their Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup title with a 2-1 win over the Columbus Crew Tuesday before a crowd of 31,311 at Qwest Field in Seattle, Washington. That is the largest crowd for a final in the tournament’s history.

Tuesday’s attendance smashed the previous finals record involving an MLS team, set in 2000 when Chicago beat the Miami Fusion in front of 19, 164 fans at Soldier Field. The previous attendance mark for the USOC final was set back in 1929, when 21,583 fans attended the final played at Dexter Park in Brooklyn, New York.

The Sounders are coached by former Crew coach, Sigi Schmid.

The Sounders became the first MLS team to win two straight Open Cup titles, and the first team to win consecutive crowns since the New York Pancyprian Freedoms won in 1982-83.

Columbus opened the scoring with a goal from Kevin Burns, on a classy finish in the 24th minute.

Nyassi was the hero of the game, scoring in the 38th and 66th minute to help Seattle rally to the win.

Andy Gruenebaum started in goal for the Crew as he always does in non-MLS games.

The Crew was playing in its third Open Cup Final, joining the 2002 squad that defeated L.A. to win the tournament and the 1998 team that lost to Chicago in overtime.
