Ranking New York Red Bulls' goals against New York City FC

New, 2 comments

They are all just so good!

The New York Red Bulls put up a very impressive 7 goals against New York City FC in the first match up of the year. What better way to celebrate that fact than to rank the goals. We'll be going from the least impressive to the most.

7 - Gideon Baah - 89th Minute

Baah's put away was the record setting goal, but it was also the least impressive. It was a goal off of a rebound on a corner kick. It's important because Baah needs to get back into the swing of things, but compared to the rest of the goals scored in this game, it was not special.

6 - Gonzalo Veron - 83rd Minute

Veron's goal is what you want to see off of a free kick from the side of goal. Perfectly floated ball to the back post. Open runner at the back post. Simple header into the back of the net. It's a no frills goal, but something we want to see every week.

5 - Dax McCarty - 3rd Minute

Dax's opening goal is a thing of beauty. Early corner, uncontested header. Perfect start to a game. It was also the Red Bulls' first goal off of a corner kick this year.

4 - Dax McCarty - 51st Minute

This goal was almost a carbon copy of the goal in the 3rd minute. It was also the first time Dax ever scored 2 goals in the same game.

3 - Alex Muyl - 56th Minute

Alex's first ever goal in MLS beats a lot of the other goals in this game, especially since it was a goal straight out of the high pressure playbook.

2 - Bradley Wright-Phillips - 41st Minute

This goal goes more to Mike Grella. The header by Wright-Phillips was impressive but if Grella didn't put in the legwork (literally), it would never have happened.

1 - Bradley Wright-Phillips - 45th Minute

The dude pulled off a bicycle kick off of a floating ball. If this doesn't make it as MLS Goal of the Week, then fan voting is stupider than it already is.

Which goal was the most impressive for you? Let us know in the comments, and vote in our poll, which will be open until noon Tuesday.
