Eight Goal Game

New York City FC continues picking on teams from the great white north by picking up a point off of Toronto FC with a 4-4 tie.  Three notable US Team stars were absent on Gold Cup Duty: Mix Diskerud, Jozy Altidore, and Michael Bradley.  Sunday's game marked the debut of two possible stand-out stars, the experienced Andoni Iraola and the fierce new young gun Angelino.  NYCFC's next home game against Orlando FC will (hopefully) feature two even bigger stars, Frank Lampard and Andrea Pirlo.  NYC still hangs in the playoff hunt despite a mediocre start to their season; anything is possible as they keep adding firepower to the lineup.  How all these new names will mesh however remains to be seen.
