[MLS PRESEASON: Disney Pro Classic] Federico Higuain's penalty kick in the 88th minute gave the Columbus Crew a 1-0 win over the Philadelphia to open the second day of play at the Walt Disney World Pro Soccer Classic whose start was delayed an hour by inclement weather. In the second game, Sporting Kansas City beat Brazilian club Fluminense's U-23 team, 3-0.

The win was the third in three preseason games for the Crew. The game marked the debut of Costa Rican international Giancarlo Gonzalez, who signed with the team from his club in Norway on Friday.

Paulo Nagamura had two goals, Jimmy Medranda had a goal and an assist and Claudio Bieler had two assists in the Sporting Kansas City win.

Both Columbus and Kansas City have won both games in the tournament that continues Wednesday.
