Arguez doesn’t see the field as Impact loses post-season friendly to Bologna


For fans of the Montreal Impact, Thursday’s exhibition loss to Bologna was part of the team’s post-MLS season cool down. For fans of FC Edmonton, it was a chance to see if midfielder Bryan Arguez will fit into the MLS team’s plans for 2013. Arguez was dressed but did not see any action in Thursday’s 1-0 loss to Bologna.

FC Edmonton has made it clear that it would love to have the American midfielder back in the fold for the 2013 season. Arguez was superb for the Eddies after he joined the club on loan from the Impact in the summer of 2012. But the Impact’s decision to bring Arguez on the post-season Italian tour of Bologna and Florence has placed the seed that the Impact is considering a future with Arguez, not without.

The other major storyline was that the game gave Impact Designated Player Marco Di Vaio the chance to have a 90-minute run-out against his former club. Surely, the game had a bit of a testimonial feel to it. Bologna, which is in the thick of the Serie A season, started just one player against Montreal who played in its last league game, against Udinese. That was defender Frederik Sorensen.

The Impact started a veteran lineup, giving defender Matter Ferrari the full 90 minutes and Alessandro Nesta an 82-minute appearance.

Daniele Paponi scored the deciding goal for the home side.
