Inter Miami picked up three more important points on the road against CF Montreal Saturday night at Stade Saputo in a 3-2 comeback victory.

Miami tightened their grip on first place in the Supporters’ Shield standings with their fifth consecutive victory in Major League Soccer action.

This could bode well when October and November roll around for MLS Cup playoffs, and it also shows that even with somewhat leaky defense, the Herons have what it takes up front to see just about see out matches.

If Rojas keeps up his impressive form, there’s a good chance he might be considered for signing of the season. However, Suarez will more than likely run home with the award as he bagged his 11th goal of the campaign, which is tied for the most in MLS alongside former Crystal Palace forward Christian Benteke.

In terms of value, Rojas has been an absolute bargain for Miami. The 28-year-old Paraguay international joined several weeks back as a free agent from Brazilian outfit Corinthians after the…
