When goals are scarce in the Chilean team, thinking about the complex qualification to the 2022 World Cup, what happens with Felipe Mora in the United States appears as a dose of hope. The forward is going through a great moment and on Saturday night he showed it again. It became the Portland Timbers 6-1 win over Real Salt Lake, by Major League Soccer.
Felipe Mora lives one of the best moments of his career. Consolidated as a starter in one of the most successful franchises of recent times in North America, he has 11 goals in 22 games played in MLS 2021. He also has three assists. He is the top scorer for his team, which is in fourth place in the Western Conference with 40 points.
In a competition as cosmopolitan as the US league, it is important to note that the Chilean Mora is the fourth-scoring South American in the tournament. However, it is well worth noting that he has the same number of goals as the Mexican Chicharito Hernández, of the Los Angeles Galaxy, one of the proper names of the MLS.
