No question here that NYRB and RSL staged one helluva show over the weekend. The game was locked at 2-2 into the final nine minutes when Alvaro Saborio bagged his third (the one you see above) in spectacular fashion. What composure. Seemed like RSL had sewn up an impressive three road points against one of the East’s toughest outs.
Right? Not so fast.
The Red Bulls scored twice in the final 10 minutes, capped by a dramatic header from Dax McCarty to seal the theatric comeback. McCarty posted this video to his Twitter on Sunday with the following caption: “This is why you play the game, moments like this.”
