On Saturday night, the Minnesota United advanced to the semi-finals of the MLS is Back Tournament.

The United defeated the San Jose Earthquakes 4-1 inside the MLS bubble on the Disney Wide World of Sports Campus.

Scoring came from all directions as Robin Lod, Jacori Hayes, Luis Amarilla and Marlon Hairston all scored goals on Saturday night.

With the win, the Minnesota United advance to the semi-finals against Orlando City FC who is also one of the Cinderella stories of the event.
