National team midfielder Kevin Molino helped his Orlando City to a convincing 4-1 victory over Wilmington Hammerherds in the USL Pro Division on Sunday, setting up two of the goals as his club returned to action at the Florida Citrus Bowl before 8,421 fans.

Molino combined well with the brother of Wayne Rooney, John, who struck two goals for the defending League champions. Rooney’s second goal in the 41st minute came when he drilled a shot into the net off a pass from Molino in the middle of the box.

Molino also assisted on the second goal of the season for Oviedo High and Rollins College alum Dennis Chin in the 65th minute.

Across in England Jason Scotland netted a 59th minute goal in Ipswich Town’s 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace which also saw Carlos Edwards playing all of Saturday’s match. This time though Scotland didn’t have his shorts pulled down by teammates like they did when he scored a previous equalizer against Southampton.

Teammate Damien Delaney explained the goal celebration, saying, “I think it’s Jason really, because he’s kind of the first one to voice his opinion on everything.

The lads were just happy that he had scored, because he had maybe not had the best of times on the bench recently.People just like pulling Jason’s shorts down, I suppose, and bringing him back down to earth!” added Delaney.

And  over in Belgium, Lester Peltier netted his 10th goal of the season for As Trencin as they drew 2-2 with Zilina in the Slovak Superliga. Khaleem Hyland also enjoyed full action in Racing Genk’s 3-1 win over Anderlecht in the Belgium top league.
