Week 26: New York Red Bulls 2-1 Sporting Kansas City
It was an important win for RBNY, achieved with a new formation, but this game will largely be remembered for THAT goal by the captain... Shortly after half-time of RBNY's back-and-forth, late-season home game against Sporting Kansas City , the Red Bulls started a break down the left: Thierry Henry flicked the ball out to Roy Miller , who pitched his pass to Peguy Luyindula , in space with three defenders back-tracking ahead of him. A look up told Luyindula his only forward option was Bradley Wright-Phillips , who was moving with the back line but well marked; Peguy switched play over to Lloyd Sam on the right.
