The New York Red Bulls are down 2-0 in their series with Columbus Crew SC. To win without going to Extra Time, they need to win by 3 goals in regulation today. It's a tough task, but not impossible. Of course, it'd be easier if they were in a situation like FC Dallas, who got a road goal to their name.
It's time for everyone to step up. Luis Robles, Dax McCarty, Bradley Wright-Phillips, Sacha Kljestan, Felipe Martins, Lloyd Sam, Mike Grella, Matt Miazga, Ronald Zubar, Kemar Lawrence, and Sal Zizzo. They will most likely be the 11 players that take the field at Red Bull Arena today. 90 minutes is their time to put in more work than they have all season.
It's the first real do or die game for the Red Bulls this year. A lot is on the line, and the fans of the team will be behind them 100%. No one saw this team lifting the Supporters' Shield at the beginning of the year. No one saw this team in the Eastern Conference Finals. No one saw this team going for MLS Cup. This team loves to prove people wrong. Here's to them doing it once again.
