The game

The match summed up the events of both teams: tight play, with little creativity and the defense dominating the attack without major problems.

DC United had the highest percentage of ball possession, but could only make four shots, two of which were saved by Carlos Coronel. The New York Red Bulls, on the other hand, showed that the goal was weak, as they fired thirteen shots at Romo’s goal, only one of which went to the DC United goalkeeper.
