Vancouver Whitecaps FC 3-1 Chicago Fire: Camilo hits brace as Whitecaps roll

A brace from Camilo helped Vancouver run out to a 3-1 win over the Chicago Fire.

Two Camilo goals in the span of five minutes were enough to give the Vancouver Whitecaps a 2-0 win over the Chicago Fire on Sunday.

The frist part of the brace came in the 66th when Camilo took down a long ball from his own goalkeeper, rounded one defender, cut back on another and slotted home.

The second goal also came on the break, with the Brazilian slipping in behind the Fire back line and going in alone on Chicago goalkeeper Paolo Tornaghi. Tornaghi got a touch on the ball as Camilo tried to round him, but the Chicago defense didn't recover in time to keep him from taking a couple of touches to right himself and slipping his second goal of the night.

Kekuta Manneh made it 3-0 for Vancouver in the 84th to put the game beyond any doubt, even though Patrick Nyarko headed home a consolation goal for Chicago deep into stoppage time.
