Some notes on Spurs loanee Brandon Austin’s performance against San Jose Earthquakes:

Making his second competitive appearance of the season for Orlando City in the MLS, young Spurs goalkeeper Brandon Austin (22) made his home debut for Orlando, at the Exploria stadium on Wednesday against San Jose Earthquakes. Austin didn’t have too much to do as Orlando comfortably won the game 5-0, but keeping a clean sheet will only boost his confidence, with Orlando’s first choice goalkeeper Pedro Gallese away with the Peru national team at the moment. Early on in Wednesday’s game Austin came rushing off of his line to clear the ball away after an opposition player had played it forward from deep. The goalkeeper from Hemel Hempstead then gathered a cross from the right flank from Paul Marie with relative ease. Looking confident and alert, Brandon Austin did really well to push over Javier Eduardo López’s powerful effort from just outside the Orlando penalty area, over his crossbar and behind for a corner kick. During the second half and with Orlando in full control of the game, Austin had very little to do, and he didn’t actually have to make a save during the second half of the match. He did gather a deflected cross from the left flank comfortably, before then gathering a low one from the right flank well. Well done to Brandon for making only his second MLS appearance, and I wish him all the very best of luck for his and Orlando’s next game, which is against Inter Miami on Saturday.
