Here we see all the members of New York City FC posing with the long-eared Eastern Conference who, incredibly under the baton of Ronny Deila, conquered their first title and are now preparing for the grand final for the MLS Cup 2021, this Saturday, April 11 December.
Incredible but true, New York City FC after 6 years of participating, finally this year could achieve its mission, to be crowned champion of the MLS Cup.
Those led by the Norwegian, Ronny Deila, continue to surprise, this time in the Eastern Conference Final, where he managed to win the title, eliminating the Philadelphia Union, led by the experienced American, Jim Curtin, who succumbed to the New York Citizen 2- one.
Conference Final that started with plays from both sides to the extreme ending the first half without goals; but already in the final stage at minute 17 (62 ‘), unfortunately, Callens’ own goal, put the’ host ‘ahead 1-0, but then and almost ending the goal celebration, at minute 19 (64’), the figure of the Argentine “Maxy” Moralez, who was in charge of tying the shares.
A long-distance kick from Maxime Chanot, which hit goalkeeper Matt Freese’s hands, and the rebound was very well used by Moralez to equalize the score.
When everything indicated they would go to extra time, the figure of Maxy Moralez again appeared with an accurate kick, he sent the ball to where Gudmundur Thorarinsson was and he served it to the youth and recently entered Tales Magno, who ‘dressed as a hero’ scoring the second and last goal of the game, giving the title to his team, NYC FC.
MLS will have a new Champion
Because Columbus Crew SC, until recently, MLS champion (2020), failed to survive the postseason/league or playoffs, ending up in a ninth-place with 47 points and despite having defeated on “Decision Day” the Chicago Fire 2-0, did not reach the classification.
Therefore this year there will be a new champion who will come out of the grand final to be played between New York City FC and Portland Timbers. The Final is to be played this Saturday, November 11, at 3 pm, at Providence Park, in Portland, Oregon.
