3. César Araújo

Honorable mention goes to Junior Urso, who scored the Lions lone goal of the match, but I had to give the first nod to Orlando's breakout young star, César Araújo. The young Uruguayan midfielder matched up against a talented and very experienced midfield featuring a pair of Charas, and didn't look out of place in the slightest.

Araújo won the ball back aggressively, looked comfortable on the ball and distributed the ball well. He's still far from a finished product, lacking sharpness on both sides of the ball, but his mentality and effort make him an invaluable member of the team. He's such a unique young player and a gem for Orlando City.
