11’: Some beautiful attacking there
22’: IT’S DAVID VILLA DAY!!! 1-0
31’: City still in control of this one
35’: Alex Callens — Peruvian Pirlo confirmed?
45+2: Really good half from the boys. Would like to see a few more goals, though.
49’: Ronald Matarrita is back! 2-0 NYC
56’: MAXI MORALEZ!!! The goals are flowing like wine!
60’: NYC might have a fourth goal in their pocket
66’: Medina almost banged one in. He could use a goal to get back into form
