Macoumba Kandji, the erstwhile Red Bulls striker forced the issue in extra time when he pushed through a nutmeg between Jair Benitez’s legs and then toe poked the ball which deflected off George John for an own goal. Before that the match was tied 1-1. The first goal was scored by Dallas’s David Ferreira through a spectacular strike (video). Colorado answered back through Conor Casey (video).
The goal came against the run of play because Dallas looked for most part as the team more likely to score the winner. They were far more skillful and assured on the ball with Ferreira and Marvin Chavez leading the way. But football does not tread the straight and the narrow.
Congratulations to Colorado on picking up the win! Hopefully this means that Stan Kroenke pays more attention to his club then trying to stage a coup in the Arsenal boardroom.
