Tomas Aviles, B-
[KEN] The 19-year-old was subbed out for Messi in the 55th minute, which I thought was unfortunate. The young Argentine was active on both ends of the field, almost scoring when his volley hit the crossbar off a first-half set piece. His younger legs also helped him get back more quickly to snuff Cincinnati breaks. He still is prone to a teenager’s mistakes, but Avilés has a really high ceiling.
[MATT] Aviles, or as I like to refer to him... "Baby Face" had quality minutes against Cincinnati. And, yes, it was unfortunate that he had to be subbed off for Messi as I could think of other candidates that should have been taken off the pitch. Mistakes will be there for a bit, but I certainly can't wait to watch this kid play when those mistakes are minimized.
