NYCFC, Roll With It
City had to make a last-minute change in their final match of the season against the Philadelphia Union.
Ronald Matarrita didn’t know that he was going to start at Talen Energy Stadium until just before kick-off but the late addition paid off immediately for NYCFC, as the Costa Rican scored the first goal of the night and his first of the season after just seven minutes.
NYCFC came into the night with one gameplan, but having to change things around right before the match and to still come through and thrive shows the strength and versatility this team possesses.
Dome Torrent’s fast thinking and flexibility in his strategy prevailed in the final win of the regular season.
