Kaka implores Orlando City to rediscover confidence

Orlando City SC slumped to a third defeat in their past four outings when they were beaten by Toronto FC 2-0 on the weekend.

The MLS expansion club began their debut campaign brightly but are now beginning to feel the pinch as life in the top flight starts to take its toll.

The Lions have scored just twice in their past four outings - both in the 2-0 win at Portland Timbers - and captain Kaka is looking to change that as soon as possible.

However, Orlando City are not back in MLS play until May 9, when they host New England Revolution, meaning they have just training and a friendly with Brazilian club Ponte Preta to iron out some issues.

Of the break, Kaka said: "We have 15 days before we have to play again, so these 15 days will be very important to us.

"We need to get back our confidence, to play hard, train hard and get back in the shape that we had before [the last two games].

"In this moment, I think we need to focus on us, what we can do better, where we can improve, and how to get our intensity back."

Orlando currently sit sixth on the Eastern Conference table with eight points from eight games which includes six goals for and 10 against.
