Azira’s Colorado Rapids fall on road to Chicago Fire

Uganda Cranes’ defender Micheal Azira and his colleagues at Colorado Rapids fell 3-0 on road to Chicago Fire in the Major League Soccer on Wednesday.

Nemanja Nikolić and David Accam netted Chicago Fire’s goals in the 15th, 74th and 57th minutes respectively.

Rapids’ coach Pablo Mastroeni made no changes to the starting lineup from last weekend’s 3-0 victory over the San Jose Earthquakes at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.

In fact, the only change to the 18 was defender Axel Sjöberg replacing midfielder Dillon Serna on the bench.

Fire controlled most of the possession in the early stages and their dominance paid off.

Rapids dropped to 2-7-1, remaining in last place in the Western Conference.

Micheal Azira featured for the whole match, getting cautioned early in the second half. He saw yellow in the 62nd minute.

The Rapids return to play on Saturday night against the Philadelphia Union at Talen Energy Stadium.
