Salzburg Squash Bregenz in Austrian Cup First Round

Red Bull Salzburg started their 2020-21 campaign with a 10-goal rout against Bregenz on Wednesday afternoon. Patson Daka wowed viewers with four goals while six others added to the lower league opposition's pain.

"We showed great concentration and mentality in the first half," said manager Jesse Marsch. "We showed a lot of our virtues and kept another clean sheet, which we always aim for. It was a good start as we look towards our league opener against Wolfsberg."

The onslaught started in the 13th minute when Sekou Koita was played through and expertly put the ball past the keeper. The pressure continued with a penalty awarded to Salzburg just four minutes later. Daka connected for his first goal of the campaign and doubling the lead. Six minutes later the team's striker scored again, effectively burying the game.

Daka's next two efforts came in the 38th and 39th minute, adding to his impressive performance and keeping the Austrian champs' momentum going. The win moves Salzburg on in the Austrian Cup and prepares them for what is expected to be a difficult Bundesliga campaign.

"Our first half performance was superb," said defender Max Wober. "It was clearly going our way when we were up 8-0. It was a great test for us before the Austrian Bundesliga starts, and a pleasure to play in front of fans again."

Salzburg begins their league campaign at Red Bull Arena on Sunday against Wolfsberger AC.

The Unfortunate Vanzeir, Struber incident that has upset the fans, and league

photo by Matt Kremkau by Dan Feuerstein The Worst moment in New York Red Bulls/MetroStars history has finally come to a temporary conclusion. When I say a temporary conclusion, it means that Major League Soccer hasn't informed the masses of the punishment that would fit this horrible situation that graced the pitch at Red Bull Arena on Saturday night, April 8th against the San Jose Earthquakes. Here is the timeline of events that happened in that match as we try to piece together what all of us saw and how it all got started from beginning to end. In the 54th minute, another horrific challenge against the New York Red Bulls struck again as Judson delivered a two-footed mid-air challenge to the chest of Dylan Nealis and sadly all it got was a yellow card, Dylan's brother, and Captain Sean Nealis protested very loudly and earned his booking for his dissent of the referee's decision. While the arguments continued between Sean Nealis & Earthquakes representative Jeremy Ebob

Rumor: Dru Yearwood to be Traded to Nashville SC

What Red Bull will receive for such a trade remains to be seen. However expectations are that the move will be finalized by the end of next week. Yearwood joined New York in 2020 from Brentford in England. Along the way he has made 86 appearances for the club, including 55 starts. In 2021 and 2022 he made 18 starts, scoring three goals and three assists, his total output for the club in Major League Soccer.  In 2023 Yearwood found his position in the club to vary greatly. At times he played in a defensive midfield role next to Frankie Amaya and other times higher up the field, almost as a second forward. After the departure of Cristian Casseres Jr. earlier in the year, it appeared as if Yearwood's minutes would increase. However Daniel Edelman stepped into the role, relegating Yearwood to more
