How goal against Chicago Fire FC led led to win

Jun 23, 2021; Chicago, Illinois, USA; FC Cincinnati midfielder Alvaro Barreal (31) reacts after scoring a goal against the Chicago Fire during the second half at Soldier Field.

In the 37th minute of FC Cincinnati’s 1-0 win against Chicago Fire FC, Alvaro Barreal, Luciano Acosta and Isaac Atanga stood in potential scoring position at Soldier Field. The trio each had a different angle against Chicago goaltender Bobby Shuttleworth, but the shot, which was ultimately taken by Atanga, didn’t make it through.

That narrative carried through the entire first half for FC Cincinnati on Wednesday. In fact, it's the same one the team has wrestled with since their last win against Montreal. Opportunities lead to misses. Shots lead to saves. FCC entered halftime in Chicago scoreless on 14 total shots.

But the team avoided panic.

Head coach Jaap Stam said the teams' talk at halftime didn’t consist of a remapped game plan or finger-pointing frustration, it was actually quite simple.
