Player Ratings Part 2: Mancosu scores late for Montreal Impact versus Union

Derik Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

Ignacio Piatti: Our star Argentinian midfielder did not manage to get his name on the scorecard but he still contributed to the offense. Piatti managed 2 successful dribbles and attempted a shot that was blocked by the Union. Piatti also completed a few perfect passes towards Mancosu that sprung him out alone in front of Andre Blake. Performance Rating: 8/10

Patrice Bernier: The Impact's captain had IMFC's best scoring opportunity of the match in the 8th minute. He was unmarked in front of the Union's net and Piatti sent in a perfect cross. All Bernier had to do was put a foot on the ball to direct it into the back of the net but he completely aired. For the rest of the game, I did not find him involved enough in the Impact's attack. He was replaced by Didier Drogba in the 61st minute. Performance Rating: 5.5/10

Lucas Ontivero: I was happy to see our young designated player return to the starting 11. Ontivero made a few runs down his flank. He was also able to cut into the box once or twice but he was not much of a threat to the Union's back four. He was eventually replaced by Dominic Oduro in the 69th minute. Performance Rating: 5/10

Matteo Mancosu: Mauro Biello made the gutsy call to start Italian striker Matteo Mancosu over Didier Drogba. Mancosu equalized the score and salvaged a point for the Impact late in the 2nd half when he headed in a ball from a few yards out that had been flicked on by Donny Toia However, Mancosu had many other good opportunities before he finally scored. Mancosu found himself in a few 1 on 1 situations with Andre Blake but was unable to convert.  Performance Rating: 7/10

Subs:

Didier Drogba: Drogba made his appearance in the 61st minute. Honestly, I found his performance to be quite disappointing. He did not seem to be interested in moving up the pitch as a unit or playing the counter, instead, he just tried to beat Blake from the center of the pitch. He was not implicated in the Impact's attack and did not look motivated on the pitch. Performance Rating: 5/10

Dominic Oduro: Oduro entered the match in the 70th minute for Lucas Ontivero. Much like the player he replaced, Oduro would remain invisible for much of the game. He attempted one shot that sailed wide of the net. He did not really threaten Philadelphia's back four with his speed. Performance Rating: 5.5/10

Harry Shipp: Harry Shipp was brought on for Marco Donadel in the 79th minute as he is more of an offensive player than Donadel. Shipp did not create much offensively, but his service from corner kicks was good. It was from one of those corners that the impact scored the equalizing goal. Performance Rating: 6.5/10

Well, that is it for my player ratings this week. Feel free to let me know what you think in the comment section.
