As MLS prepares for Manchester United and the MLS All-Star Game at Red Bull Arena, let’s take a final look back at Saturday night’s draw home to FC Dallas.
On a 100-degree night at Red Bull Arena, New York fell behind 2-1 and a man-down late in the match, but a Thierry Henry equalizer gave the Red Bulls a home point against last year’s MLS Cup runners up. Going down a goal and a man might have been the end for Hans Backe’s side, but the team showed resilience in clawing back to go level late in the match. We got reaction from Backe, goalscorers Henry and Juan Agudelo, as well as defender Tim Ream. Share your reaction in the comments section.
