Danny Cruz made his United debut replacing Pontius in the 73rd minute.

Olsen made his final substitution with 11 minutes on the clock replacing Salihi with another new signee, Maicon Santos, who tested Kansas goalie Jimmy Nielson with a free kick shortly after entering the field.

Then came Sapong’s late goal, cancelling all of United’s defensive efforts and once more exposing the club’s problems at home, where it was 4-5-8 last season.

Next up for United is a tough road-trip to MLS champions, the Los Angeles Galaxy next Sunday.
