Man of the Match…

Jack Harrison

The winger always looked like the most likely source of a goal to break the deadlock and he delivered it in fine style with a crashing finish under Blake after a clever run around the back of the Philadelphia defense.

It wasn’t just his goal which caught the eye on the night – he was a constant menace to the Union backline, slaloming through challenges and exchanging passes with teammates throughout the contest.

What’s Next?

NYCFC return to Yankee Stadium on Sunday, April 23, 2017, where they will take on Orlando City at 1.30pm at YANKEE STADIUM
