The Orlando City lose their captain for six weeks. Каkа got injured in the very beginning of the Orlando City vs New York City FC game.
It was the first game at the new Orlando City stadium, which ended in their 1-0 win.
“I am very, very disappointed for Kaka. He’s worked extremely hard in the offseason and hard in the preseason,” Orlando head coach Jason Kreis said to reporters after the game. “This could’ve been a huge night for him. I think everyone could see the energy he was already putting into the game in those 11 minutes. I thought this was going to be a special night for him. Deeply disappointed for him but the team moved on, and that’s a positive thing.”
