New York Red Bulls question controversial PK call in draw vs. New England Revolution
It wasnt a penalty kick. I asked the referee and all he kept on saying was sorry sorry, sorry and [then it was] goal, 1-1. READ: More goals within reach for New York Red Bulls While Olave touched on the matter directly, others tried to avoid it like the plague. Red Bulls head coach Mike Petke and captain Thierry Henry were among those that attempted to refrain from talking about the play, hoping to prevent any potential disciplinary action from MLS. I will not mention the last 20 minutes because I will have to mention someone else, said Henry while giving his postgame thoughts. I dont actually want to do it. I will let [the media] do it. You dont get fined and stuff, so thats way better. Said Petke: Theres a giant ball mark pretty much on his chest, well inside shoulder. I just told him to get it to the laundry mat to get that dirt off of there. You guys heard what I said right? Thats all I said. Theres a ball mark on his chest area. READ: Revs’ Heaps furious Farrell held out for final play Despite the controversial nature of the call, New York know they could have avoided such a game-altering scenario had they killed off the match earlier, and Cahill even sympathized with Bazakos despite labeling the penalty kick dubious. You have to work with the referees and the officials, Cahill said.
Second half goals by Lee Nguyen and Diego Fagundez erased a first half deficit put up by New York’s Fabian Espindola. But the Revolution were unable to preserve the victory and their first-ever win at Red Bull Arena as Tim Cahill tied the game in the seventh and final minute of second half stoppage time. “Right now I think if we had come away with no points this game, I think its tough to get back together kind of after such an intense game, but we get the point,” said Revolution defender Andrew Farrell. “We were up until the last play.” At the start of the game, it looked like the Revolution wanted to defend the Red Bulls and launch chances via counter-attacks. Juan Agudelo returned from a hamstring injury and made his first start since Aug. 30, but had difficulty connecting with fellow forwards Diego Fagundez and Saer Sene. That tactic became even more ineffective once the Red Bulls took the lead. In the 14th minute, Espindola intercepted a back pass by Scott Caldwell to AJ Soares, cut past a defender, and then fired a low drive past Matt Reis and into the goal for his ninth goal of the season and the lead. With a deficit to overcome, the Revolution tried a more proactive approach. They played to the forwards’ feet and sent the ball to the flanks. Nevertheless, they ended the first half with only two shots on target, both of which were easy saves for New York goalkeeper Luis Robles. New York, however, nearly doubled its lead in the 24th minute as Espindola flicked a cross from Thierry Henry off the post.
