Sometimes, a team with a legendary center forward that’s also the reigning league MVP really needs a late goal. Sometimes, they need two.
On Saturday afternoon at Yankee Stadium, the good guys got two— from their starting center backs.
Alexander Callens is New York City FC’s Janus, a two-faced soccering entity equally capable of uncommon feats of center-half athleticism or stupefying mistakes that yank the team down to its knees. But lucky for us in the supporters section that the Peruvian international picked the 85th minute to open up his scoring account in Major League Soccer.
Need a late winner? Better Call Callens.
