Inter Miami manager Phil Neville is eagerly anticipating the South Florida derby with Orlando City on Friday night. According to him, the Orlando City game stood out for him when he got the job to manage Inter Miami in mls football.

Ahead of the latest mls football meeting between Inter Miami and Orlando City, Neville and his players have struggled to achieve results in mls football this season but the same can’t be said about Orlando City who are one of the form teams in mls football. Orlando City take on their South Florida rivals on the back oftheir most convincing result of the present mls season, a 5-0 thrashing of San Jose Earthquakes thanks to two goals apiece from Daryl Dike and Benji Michel in addition to the impressive performance from Portuguese international Luis Nani. On their part, Inter Miami have lost four of their last five games in the league including the last game that ended in a 1-0 defeat to D. C. United and with ten men.

In his pre-match press conference ahead of the game, Phil Neville told reporters that he hopes his team can use the home clash with Orlando City to spark a resurgence. The Englishman is expecting an electrifying atmosphere during the game.

Orlando City are second in the Eastern Conference behind New England Revolution with an impressive record of five wins, three draws and one loss from the ten games played with a goal difference of +10 as they have continued to improve in the second season under manager Nico Pareja. Phil Neville acknowledges Orlando City as a very good team and he expects a tough encounter when him and his players face them in their latest mls football clash.

Phil Neville is in his first season as the Inter Miami manager and it is safe to say that things have not gone according to plan but he still has time to change it starting with the game against South Florida rivals Orlando City.
