If you missed the match, not to worry - we've got you covered!
Big Win for Pride Night
NYCFC arrived to the Bronx after a long four match road campaign. The guys were suited up in Knot Standard - can you blame them? Lookin' good, feelin' good!
Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, they warmed up in these Pride tops!
We celebrated Pride the City way... Even the pigeon was repping the rainbow!
The night kicked off with a big save from Brad Stuver in his third appearance in net for NYCFC, #StuverSaves?
That was just the beginning... Alexandru Mitriță scored his fourth goal for NYCFC early in the night, and what a goal it was!
Next up, Héber banked in a shot to double the lead...
You get a goal, you get a goal... Ismael Tajouri-Shradi take a bow!
Héber just can't be stopped, see for yourself.
And Maxi Moralez just put the cherry on top, a well deserved three points for these guys.
Now that's a lot of goals, but there was more history to be made... Homegrown, Justin Haak made his MLS debut for NYCFC! The Brooklyn native got a warm welcome from the crowd, you love to see it!
If you missed their celebrations, relive them here...
Leader's gonna lead, you're up captain.
Always respect the game... Listen to what Dome Torrent had to say after NYCFC's big night.
🎙️ | “I’m happy after the first 30 minutes. We created chances and scored three goals. After that we didn’t play so well. It’s too many rabonas, too much, & the game was not over. We have to respect the game, I say to them in the second half - and they did." - @DomeTorrent #NYCFC pic.twitter.com/iy9YxbpL2s— New York City FC (@NYCFC) June 7, 2019
Pep Guardiola was in the house!
Just when you thought Haak's night couldn't get any better... Sprinkle some Pep on top and... BAM!
Pretty good night for Justin Haak... pic.twitter.com/5dG78xvCwE— New York City FC (@NYCFC) June 7, 2019
