In sole possession of first place in the Eastern Conference entering the weekend, the New York Red Bulls will look to extend its three point lead when they host FC Dallas at Red Bull Arena. New York recorded its third-straight win, toppling Toronto FC, 2-0, last Saturday at home. Thierry Henry and Fabian Espindola scored. FC Dallas is three points away from a playoff spot following a 2-1 loss on the road to the Colorado Rapids. FC Dallas beat New York, 2-1, in the last meeting between the teams on March 11, 2012 at Toyota Stadium.


RED BULLS VS. FC DALLAS – SEPTEMBER 22, 2013 – 5:00 PM ET

BULLETIN BOARD FIRST PLACE RED BULLS TACKLE FC DALLAS Riding a three-game win streak and boasting a three-point lead atop the Eastern Conference, the New York Red Bulls will host FC Dallas at Red Bull Arena on Sunday at 5:00 PM ET (TV: MSG, UniMas; Radio: ESPN Deportes Radio Nueva York 1050 AM). The Red Bulls moved into sole possession of first place with five regular season games remaining following a 2-0 home win over Toronto FC last Saturday at Red Bull Arena. Forwards Thierry Henry and Fabian Espindola each found the back of the net and the defense earned its ninth shutout of the year, as New York surged to its third-consecutive victory. The Red Bulls (14-9-6, 48 points) broke out of a three-way first place tie with their win, as they enter the weekend three points ahead of co-second place teams, Sporting Kansas City and the Montreal Impact.

Espindola was first to it and headed it over Bendik and into the back of the net from an acute angle. New York Red Bulls 2, Toronto FC 0 September 14, 2013 – Red Bull Arena – Harrison, NJ MLS Regular Season Scoring Summary: NY: Thierry Henry 9 (Dax McCarty 3, Michael Bustamante 1) 32’ NY: Fabian Espindola 8 (unassisted) 80’ Disciplinary Summary: NY: Michael Bustamante (caution) 44’ TOR: Steven Caldwell (caution) 58’

FC Dallas is in the midst of the playoff hunt in the Western Conference and currently sits in sixth place with a 10-8-10 record and 40 points – three points shy of the fifth place Portland Timbers. Despite going ahead with a David Ferreira 51st minute goal, FC Dallas fell on the road to the Colorado Rapids, 2-1, at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park last Saturday. Panamanian forward Blas Perez leads FC Dallas with 10 goals while Ferreira has recorded a team-high eight assists.

New York Red Bulls (14-9-6, 48 points) – Luis Robles, Kosuke Kimura, Jamison Olave, Markus Holgersson, David Carney, Eric Alexander, Dax McCarty, Michael Bustamante (Peguy Luyindula 90’), Jonny Steele, Thierry Henry, Bradley Wright-Phillips (Fabian Espindola 79’)

Last season, the Red Bulls opened the season at Toyota Stadium on March 11 and lost the match, 2-1. New York’s goal came from then Red Bull and current FC Dallas forward, Kenny Cooper. In the 78th minute, trailing 2-0, Thierry Henry sailed a pass over Dallas’s back line and Cooper was able to head it home past current Red Bulls goalkeeper Kevin Hartman. New York is 18-17-4 all-time versus FC Dallas and 10-8-2 at home. The Red Bulls are unbeaten (4-0-1) in its last five home contests versus their Western Conference foe, with FC Dallas’ last win coming on May 24, 2006 – a 2-1 victory at Giants Stadium.

Toronto FC (4-14-11, 23 points) – Joe Bendik, Gale Agbossoumonde, Ashtone Morgan, Steven Caldwell, Mark Bloom, Jeremy Hall, Jonathan Osorio, Alvaro Rey (Kyle Bekker 88’), Bobby Convey, Andrew Wiedeman (Bright Dike 75’), Justin Braun (Jonas Elmer 53’)

NEW YORK TOPS TORONTO FC, 2-0 Forwards Thierry Henry and Fabian Espindola each recorded a goal and the defense earned its ninth shutout of the year, as the New York Red Bulls moved into sole possession of first place in the Eastern Conference with a 2-0 win over Toronto FC Saturday night at Red Bull Arena. With 48 points off a 14-9-6 record and five games left in the regular season, the Red Bulls broke out of a three-way tie atop the table and are now three points ahead of the Montreal Impact, which lost earlier in the day to Columbus, 2-1, and the idle Sporting Kansas City. Both teams battled for control of the match and Red Bulls midfielder Dax McCarty had an open look on goal in the 19th minute, hitting a left-footed volley that zipped straight to goalkeeper Joe Bendik. On the other end, Toronto FC forward Andrew Wiedeman headed an Alvaro Rey cross just over the bar. nd

Henry and the Red Bulls drew first blood in the 32 minute. Rookie midfielder Michael Bustamante, making his first MLS start, played a through ball to McCarty, who controlled it and knocked a low pass across the box that was tapped in by Henry. Bendik kept the visitors within one in the 67th minute, going to his right to parry away a Bradley Wright-Phillips header after the English forward was first to a bouncing ball in the box. Four minutes later, WrightPhillips had space from 18 yards and fired it right at Bendik. The Red Bulls doubled their advantage and secured the three points 10 minutes from full time. Following a cleared Henry free kick, David Carney’s deflected cross was flicked by Toronto FC Steven Caldwell.

The three-time MLS All-Star notched his team-high ninth goal in New York’s 2-0 win over Toronto FC last Saturday. The goal, his second in as many games, put him in sole possession of third place all-time in regular season goals scored with 40, surpassing Clint Mathis. Henry is in a six-way tie for first place in MLS this season with five game-winning goals. Henry’s eight assists this year have pushed him in sole possession of third place in that category.

RED BULLS VS. FC DALLAS – SEPTEMBER 22, 2013 – 5:00 PM ET BUSTAMANTE MAKES IMPACT IN FIRST START Rookie midfielder Michael Bustamante earned his first MLS start against Toronto FC last Saturday and earned his first career assist after providing the initial pass to Dax McCarty that led to Thierry Henry’s 32 nd minute goal. Bustamante had featured in three games as a substitute before the Toronto FC match. Peguy Luyindula replaced Bustamante in the 90th minute.

when he was able to collect a Jonny Steele cross on a counterattack, cut to his left foot and put it past goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen. Sam was forced to leave the game with a left quadriceps injury in the 87th minute.

Bustamante, taken in the first round (13th overall) of the 2013 MLS Supplemental Draft from Boston University, was a four-time America East All-Conference First Team and NSCAA All-Northeast Region selection. Despite missing the 2011 season due to a leg injury, the 2008 America East Midfielder and Rookie of the Year recorded a total of 69 games played, earning nine goals and 27 assists over his four-year college career.

ACADEMY PRODUCT MIAZGA MAKES DEBUT Former Red Bulls Academy defender Matt Miazga made his professional debut on Sept. 31 at Houston, coming on for Markus Holgersson in the 76th minute. The 18-year-old played at centerback and helped keep the Dynamo at bay in the Red Bulls’ 4-1 win.

ESPINDOLA TALLIES EIGHTH Red Bulls forward Fabian Espindola came off the bench, making his 150th MLS appearance, and had an immediate effect on the score line, heading in his eighth goal of the season from an acute angle in the 80 th minute to give New York a 2-0 win. The tally was Espindola’s 43rd in MLS play. He has made 25 appearances for New York his year. ALEXANDER, STEELE ENJOYING CAREER SEASONS In their first seasons as New York Red Bulls, midfielders Eric Alexander and Jonny Steele are enjoying career years. Alexander recorded his third goal of the year, while Steele chipped in with a goal and an assist in New York’s 4-1 win over Houston on Sept. 8. For Alexander, who is the only New York field player to have played in every Red Bulls match this year, he has already reached career-highs in games played (29), games started (28) and goals (3). The fourth-year midfielder was acquired from the Portland Timbers on Feb. 11 in exchange for allocation money. Steele is currently enjoying his second full season in MLS following an extended career playing for a number of teams within the United States. The 27-year-old has four goals to go along with six assists – a mark that is second on the team to forward Thierry Henry’s eight. He has also featured in 27 of 28 games for New York this year. Steele was signed by New York on Feb. 20 after the Red Bulls acquired the Northern Irishman’s first right of refusal from Real Salt Lake in exchange for a conditional supplemental draft pick. RED BULLS ROLL ON ROAD New York earned its fifth road win of the season on Sunday to move its record away from Red Bull Arena to 5-7-3. The Red Bulls moved into a four-way tie with Sporting Kansas City, Real Salt Lake and Seattle Sounders FC for most road wins in MLS. SAM STAYS HOT, SCORING IN SECOND-STRAIGHT Red Bulls midfielder Lloyd Sam earned his second-straight start and did not disappoint, recording a goal in New York’s 4-1 win over Houston Sept. 8 – a week after the Englishman scored versus D.C. United. Sam, who found the back of the net in Houston following a Peguy Luyindula feed, now has four goals this season. Previously, Sam was named Major League Soccer’s Player of the Week for Week 23. Sam came off the bench and had an assist and the eventual game-winning goal in the Red Bulls’ 3-2 win over Sporting Kansas City Aug. 3 at Sporting Park. Making his 15th appearance of the season, Sam entered the game, tied at 11 at the time, in the 60th minute for Eric Alexander. Sam was instrumental in putting the Red Bulls up 2-1 in the 63rd minute, sliding a well-weighted through ball to an onside Fabian Espindola, who found the back of the net on the play. Six minutes later, Sam got his name on the scoresheet

It was the second time a Red Bull has earned the MLS Player of the Week award in 2013. Midfielder Tim Cahill was the Player of the Week in Week 9.

Miazga was the eighth Red Bulls Academy product to sign with New York’s first team via the MLS Homegrown Player rule on May 30. Hailing from Clifton, NJ, he has represented the United States at the Under-18 level. He was a member of the Red Bulls Academy since 2009, when he played for the club’s Under-14 squad. The 17-year-old was part of the Under-16 Red Bulls side that won the U.S. Developmental Academy National Championship in 2012 and also played for the Under18 team. He has also featured for his country at other various U.S. Youth National Team age levels. The other former Red Bulls Academy players who graduated to the New York first team were: forward Giorgi Chirgadze (signed: Sept. 2009), forward Juan Agudelo (March 2010), midfielder Matt Kassel (Jan. 2011), defender Sacir Hot (Jan. 2011), defender Connor Lade (Dec. 2011), goalkeeper Santiago Castano (Dec. 2012) and Amando Moreno (Dec. 2012). Miazga is the fifth player to make his professional debut for New York, following Agudelo, Kassel, Lade and Moreno. FINDING THE BACK OF THE NET The Red Bulls are tied for first with the Montreal Impact in the Eastern Conference in goals scored with 46. The Red Bulls are paced by Thierry Henry, who has nine goals, and Fabian Espindola and Tim Cahill (8). Both Montreal and New York trail Real Salt Lake (52) in goals scored. RED BULLS WIN ATLANTIC CUP With New York going 2-0-1 against D.C. United this year, the Red Bulls won the Atlantic Cup for the third time in four years. It is only the second time in club history that New York has gone unbeaten against D.C. in a regular season (the other time was 2010, when it went 1-0-1). New York earned a 2-0 win over United at RFK Stadium on April 13 and a 0-0 tie at Red Bull Arena on March 16. ROBLES COMES UP BIG AGAIN Red Bulls goalkeeper Luis Robles faced his eighth penalty kick of the year and his MLS career Aug. 31 against D.C. United and guessed correctly, going to his right to block Dwayne De Rosario’s attempt. His effort helped New York hang on to its 2-1 win. Robles, the only player for New York who has started every game this season, has been scored on five times from the penalty spot. On April 7, Chicago’s Chris Rolfe was wide of the mark while on May 4, Robles stoned Columbus’ Federico Higuain en route to a 1-0 New York win. Robles (3-for-8) is tied with Greg Sutton (3-for-5), Tim Howard (3for-10) and Tony Meola (3-for-16) in penalty kick saves/penalty kick misses with three. No New York keeper has kept out/seen a miss four times. CAHILL MAKES IMPACT, BUT SUFFERS ANKLE INJURY Red Bulls midfielder Tim Cahill played as a forward on Aug. 31 against D.C. United and tallied a goal and an assist in New York’s 2-1 win. However, Cahill was set to miss up to four weeks due to a ligament tear in his right ankle following a tackle from Dejan Jakovic. The play occurred in the lead up to midfielder Lloyd Sam’s eighth minute goal. Cahill earned an assist on Sam’s tally.


RED BULLS VS. FC DALLAS – SEPTEMBER 22, 2013 – 5:00 PM ET

Cahill now has eight goals to go along with four assists this season. The Australian is not unfamiliar with scoring while injured. On July 27 in New York’s 4-3 win over Real Salt Lake, despite suffering a torn PCL following a Yordany Alvarez fourth minute tackle, Cahill ended up on the scoresheet with a goal seven minutes later. He went onto miss two games due to the injury. This 2013 MLS All-Star has been influential for the Red Bulls in his first full League campaign and has started in 22 regular season matches this year. BWP, CARNEY EARN DEBUTS Less than a week after making his MLS debut, Red Bulls forward Bradley Wright-Phillips earned his first start in New York’s 2-1 win over D.C. United Aug. 31. He recorded his MLS debut Aug. 25 at Chivas USA, coming on in the 58th minute for Fabian Espindola. Last Sunday at Houston, Wright-Phillips recorded his first MLS assist on Jonny Steele’s 59th minute goal. In addition, defender/midfielder David Carney started at left back against United and played the full 90 minutes in his first MLS appearance. New York signed Wright-Phillips on July 24. His career started in 2004, when he graduated from Manchester City’s academy and played for the Premiership side until 2006. The 28-year-old then moved onto English side, Southampton, where he amassed 111 appearances and scored 22 goals. From 2009-11, Wright-Phillips featured for Plymouth Argyle before the former English Under-20 International moved to Charlton Athletic. At Charlton, Wright-Phillips scored 31 goals in 82 games. Wright-Phillips was most recently at Brentford on loan, playing 15 matches and recording five goals. Carney, who was signed on Aug. 8, was most recently with Uzbekistan’s FC Bunyodkor and started his career with English side Everton, where he competed in academy and reserve sides. In 2005, Carney joined A-League club, Sydney FC and helped his side qualify for the Club World Championship. It was in 2006 when Carney earned his first call-up to the Australian National Team. Carney made a total of 33 appearances and tallied seven goals for Sydney FC. In August 2007, Carney signed with England’s Sheffield United, where he played until 2009. He also had a loan stint at Norwich City in 2009 and later in the year, moved to Dutch First Division side, FC Twente, helping his team win the Dutch League title for the first time in club history. Carney also played for England’s Blackpool (2010-11) and Spain’s AD Alcorcon (2011-12) before joining Bunyodkor. As a teammate of current Red Bull Tim Cahill, Carney has earned 46 caps for Australia and scored six goals. He was part of the Socceroos’ 2010 FIFA World Cup and 2007 and 2011 Asian Cup squads. RED BULLS-UNION HOSTS THIRD SELLOUT The Red Bulls-Philadelphia Union match on Aug. 17 was the third sellout of the season at Red Bull Arena this year. The 25,483 attendance announced at the sold out Red Bulls-Dynamo game on June 23 was the highest mark in club history since Red Bull Arena opened in March 2010. New York-LA Galaxy on May 19 was the first sellout of the year (25,219). New York is 8-2-3 at home in 2013. KNOCKING THEM OFF In the Red Bulls’ four-game unbeaten run (3-0-1) that ended Aug. 10 at Columbus, they have defeated three then first place teams – the Montreal Impact on July 13 (4-0), Real Salt Lake on July 27 (4-3) and Sporting Kansas City (3-2). According to the Elias Sports Bureau, New York’s win over Sporting Kansas City was its first victory on the road over a team in sole possession of first place in the Eastern Conference since its 1-0 victory over the Columbus Crew on April 26, 2003.

SEKAGYA MAKES DEBUT, HELPS IN WIN Red Bull Ibrahim Sekagya, who signed on July 11, made his debut for New York Aug. 3, playing central midfield and the full 90 minutes in his team’s 3-2 win. Sekagya was suspended for New York’s match against Houston on Sunday following his red card against D.C. United on Aug. 31. Featuring mainly as a center back, Sekagya was previously with Red Bull Salzburg of the Austrian Bundesliga from 2007 to the conclusion of the club’s most recent campaign, playing in a total of 165 games and scoring six goals. Sekagya was part of the Red Bull Salzburg squad that won the Austrian Bundesliga title three times (2008-09, 2009-10 and 2011-12), League Cup once (2012) and served as captain during parts of his tenure. He began his professional career in Uganda and then went to Argentina in 2001, playing with Atletico de Rafela. The 32-year-old also enjoyed stints at Ferro Carril Oeste (2002-05) and Argentina first division squad, Arsenal de Sarandi (2005-07). Sekagya was a member of the Ugandan National Team and was part of the side’s 2006 and 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaigns. He earned 26 caps, scoring three goals and was captain for his country until he retired from international soccer. LATE GAME HEROICS Red Bulls midfielder Dax McCarty’s third goal of the year – a 94th minute header to lead New York to a 4-3 win over Real Salt Lake on July 27 – was not the first time New York has seen late game heroics from one of its players. The Red Bulls have had six game winning goals and two game-tying goals after the 80th minute (forward Fabian Espindola had recorded a game-tying goal in the RSL game). New York has scored 15 goals after the 75th minute. HENRY CAPTAINS MLS ALL-STARS New York forward Thierry Henry was named captain of the MLS AllStar team and played 57 minutes in their 3-1 loss to Italian side, AS Roma, July 31 at Sporting Park. Henry was voted onto the MLS Fan XI and earned his third-straight selection to the All-Star team. Red Bulls midfielder Tim Cahill was also named to the 2013 MLS AllStar Game’s 20-man gameday roster, earning his first-ever selection to the team as a Commissioner’s Pick. However, Cahill missed the match due to a PCL tear in his right knee and was replaced by Philadelphia’s Jack McInerney in the squad. IRON MEN Currently, goalkeeper Luis Robles and midfielder Eric Alexander are the only Red Bulls to have featured in every MLS game this season. In addition, Robles is the only player to have started each of the 28 matches New York has competed in. BULLS ON PARADE The Red Bulls earned their first seven-game unbeaten run (5-0-2) for only the third time in club history and first time in 10 years before the streak was snapped in the team’s last match against Vancouver on June 1 – a 2-1 defeat. The last time this occurred was from April 19, 2003 to May 31, 2003 when New York went 5-0-2. It was the first time that the Red Bulls has not lost in six consecutive matches from April 28, 2012 to May 23, 2012. Prior to the Vancouver result, New York’s last loss was on April 17 – a 1-0 home defeat to Sporting Kansas City. In addition, after failing to win in their first four away games, New York had gone unbeaten in four road matches (3-0-1) before falling to Philadelphia last Sunday. Their record away from Red Bull Arena is 3-42. The Red Bulls are 4-2-2 at home. The other time that New York had an unbeaten streak that was seven games or longer was when it went nine matches without a defeat from June 17, 2000 to July 22, 2000 (7-0-2).
