New York City 2, San Jose 1 — as it happened!

Keaton Parks, Alexandru Mitrita lead NYCFC to a narrow, but key victory over the Earthquakes

MLS: San Jose Earthquakes at New York City FC Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

90’+3: Mitri can’t find Taty Castellanos on the killer through ball to truly put this one away.

84’: Sebastien Ibeagha comes on for Gary Mackay-Steven

77’: Tony Rocha comes on for Keaton Parks

61’: Ebenezer Ofori comes on for Tajouri-Shradi

47’: Sean Johnson forced into two big saves early in the half. Not the best start, but still 2-1.

The second half’s a go! Can City extend their lead and log in a huge W against the Quakes?


Ismael Tajouri-Shradi finds Alexandru Mitrita on an inch-perfect pass. Mitri takes a great touch and fires the go-ahead past Vega. What a sequence!


Keaton Parks spurs the counter. The ball is initially passed into space for Gary Mackay-Steven, who got a golden opportunity. Vega saved the Scotsman’s shot, but Parks is there to clean up and finish what he started. Great attack!

26’: So close! GMS hits the crossbar after cutting inside. Should’ve probably been a corner kick, but the referee says otherwise.

10’: Weird start to this one. NYCFC doesn’t look lethargic per se, but they are definitely lacking that bite in the attack.

We’re off in this early afternoon matchup! Can City find the goals without Maxi in the lineup?

Rosters are out! As Domé told the press yesterday, Maxi Moralez will sit this one out. However, tons of regulars have returned from international duty which can pay dividends, especially on the defensive side of the ball. Also, Ismael Tajouri-Shradi makes his first start since July.

All-time series: Faced with a quick turnaround following a rough draw on Wednesday, New York City FC are back at it again on three days’ rest to take on a resurgent San Jose Earthquakes team at home in the Bronx.

For City, they regain a slew of players after the latest international “break” which definitely helps their cause. Unfortunately, they might have to do it without key playmaker Maxi Moralez. The home confines of Yankee Stadium will have to play their part for a result tonight.
