New York City FC player ratings are determined by Hudson River Blue readers — here are your NYCFC player ratings after the thrilling 2-1 home win over Toronto FC in the Bronx.

New York City FCF finally tallied their first points of 2024, but the win certainly did not come easy. With Toronto’s early strike in the seventh minute, it looked like Los Celestes were in for another blue Saturday night in The Bronx. But, unlike the team’s attitude after conceding last week to Portland, New York City responded in a big way this time out.

After a couple of decent looks from Santi Rodriguez, Mounsef Bakrar, and Julián Fernández, It was a moment of magic from Santi that brought the game level in the 24th minute. From a dead ball just inside 30 yards out, the Uruguayan curled a beautiful free kick into the top left corner, sending the keeper to the turf empty-handed, and the onlooking supporter’s section into an absolute frenzy.
