Facundo Torres LOVES the Ball

Friday was the Orlando City debut of young Uruguayan star Facundo Torres, and he brought all the excitement and energy you'd hope from a young Designated Player. More than his overall dynamism, my biggest takeaway was how much he loves to be on the ball. Torres floated around constantly to find the ball. He may have nominally been listed as a left winger, but he was anywhere the ball was. And when he got the ball, Torres looked dynamic and quick. He didn't create much in the way of clear chances -- though he did have a secondary assist on Orlando's goal -- but that final product should come over time.
