After playing the first three matches of the season in the center of defense, Chris Wingert moved back to his more familiar role at fullback for New York City FC's 1-0 loss to Sporting Kansas City in front of 27,454 on Saturday night at Yankee Stadium.
Despite the Club's first-ever defeat, the 32-year-old was named the Heineken Star of the Match for his performance.
The left back provided a tempting ball across the 6-yard box in the 83rd minute, but it went over the heads of both Patrick Mullins and Tony Taylor.
Here is the story of his day in words, video, pictures and numbers.
By the Numbers
- Won 100% of the aerial duels he had
- Had an 87.5% success rate in all duels
- Totaled 85 touches and 64 total passes
- Has played in all 360 minutes this season (four starts)
