David Accam scored in the 86th minute to give Nashville SC a 1-0 victory over FC Dallas on Wednesday night in the first match for both teams since Major League Soccer shut down the season in March because of the coronavirus.
Nashville and Dallas withdrew from the MLS is Back tournament this past month in Florida because of positive COVID-19 tests. The game between the teams in Frisco, Texas, was the first of the league's restart of the regular season.
Fans were allowed in the stands for the game, but at a reduced capacity because of local regulations in Texas. Although 5,100 were allowed, the crowd appeared much smaller.
Nashville was without coach Gary Smith for the game because of COVID-19 testing results. Although he ultimately tested negative, it was too late for him to make the trip for the game.
Players from both teams and the officials took a knee when the national anthem was played before the game.
MLS is playing an abbreviated season in local markets following the MLS is Back tournament, which was played without fans outside Orlando. The Portland Timbers defeated Orlando City in the championship match on Tuesday night.
