When Orlando City SC completed the transfer of Uruguayan forward Facundo Torres in January, the Lions paid a club-record $7.5 million fee and $1.5 million in bonuses for 100% of his rights.
Torres made the major spending all worth it Wednesday night by delivering two goals in the club’s biggest win as host Orlando City defeated Sacramento Republic FC 3-0 in the U.S. Open Cup final.
After more than an hour of scoreless soccer, Torres put the Lions in front following a costly turnover by Sacramento in the 75th minute.
Five minutes later, Torres found the back of the net on a penalty kick to give Orlando City breathing room in the final 10 minutes of the match.
