Though the scoreline reflects otherwise, Toronto FC played pretty damn well in the opening stages of last night’s game in New York. Luis Silva was sent in alone only to be foiled by the post. Minutes later Ryan Johnson unleashed an absolute screamer – a goal of the year candidate – to put the visitors ahead.
Unfortunately this joy would be short lived. Thierry Henry went off – three assists and a beauty of a goal – and the Red Bulls coasted to a 4-1 victory. Sitting at second place in the division, New York is all but assured a place in the playoffs.
