United ready for season opener Saturday

February 26, 2019 03:22 PM

Before Minnesota United FC takes off for Vancouver, they practiced in Blaine on Tuesday morning.

KSTP Sports was there to take the team's temperature before Saturday's opener.


United opens with five straight road games before opening Allianz Field in mid-April. Expectations are high entering year No. 3 in the MLS, with the playoffs even being loosely talked about.

Darwin Quintero is back after leading United with 11 goals in only 20-games. Having him for the full 34-game season will be a big help.
