Sometimes ties can feel like wins. Not always, but when you’re playing on the road against the top team in the conference, a place historically you haven’t had much success, pulling off a point in come from behind fashion can be the boost a team needs to start a run. In a match against 1st Place (then, now 3rd) New England Revolution the New York City Football Club did that, scoring on an 80th minute header by Talles Magno after falling behind just minutes before.

Going into the half knotted at zero both clubs looks virtually identical on the stat sheet the Revs took a 1-0 lead at the 70th minute after a left footed shot from just outside the penalty box by Midfielder & Captain Carlos Gil found it’s way past an outstretched Luis Barraza. However 10 minutes later came the much needed equalizer as Talles Magno took a header off a corner kick for his second goal of the year. In the end, a match head coach Nick Cushing was mostly happy with, but admitted room for improvement, “It was the game I expected. We knew it was never going to be easy here [Gillette Stadium]. I’m really pleased with the performance. We played well, we dictated large parts of the game. I thought we could have been cleaner in our attacks at times. Sometimes we were on the sides because of their [New England Revolution] diamond (formation). We are really pleased to get a point on the road at New England and pleased that we probably could have gone and won the game.”

Next up for the club is a much needed 3 game homestand on each of the following three Saturdays starting with a matchup against Atlanta United at Yankee Stadium followed by two matches at Citi Field, first against Nashville followed by FC Dallas.


1) NYCFC saw a pair of newer players get their start in the backfield. With Tayvon Gray out with a lower body injury Mitja Ilenič and newcomer Gabe Segal getting starts, with Segal getting his first minutes with the club and MLS as a whole. He talks about his experience in this short clip:

3) James Sands was named Captain of this match and was the third named captain this season, behind Maxime Chanot & Thiago Martins.

4) Next up is a trip back to Yankee Stadium, as the Gents in Blue take on 2nd place Atlanta United. The setup has been successful for NYCFC, having gone 4-1-2 against the Five Stripes in the Bronx.
