Latif Blessing on target for LAFC in win over New York Red Bulls

Latif Blessing was on target for Los Angeles FC in their 4-2 win over New York Red Bulls on Sunday.

Harvey opened the scoring, heading in a long Vela free kick in the 23rd minute before Latif Blessing doubled the advantage two minutes later, sliding onto a Steven Beitashour pass for his fourth goal this season and second in as many weeks.

New York pulled even just before the break, with Cristian Casseres Jr. putting a right-footed shot past Tyler Miller at the near post in the 42nd minute and Brian White sliding between Harvey and Beitashour to deflect a Daniel Royer feed off the left post, then off Miller’s backside for an own goal.

The tie didn’t last long, though, with Eduard Atuesta setting up the go-ahead goal by going down in the box on a challenge from Rece Buckmaster. Which Vela converted the penalty kick, to give him 37 goals in MLS, breaking Cubo Torres’ record for a Mexican player.

Segura closed out the scoring 11 minutes later, collecting his first MLS goal by heading in another long Vela free kick.
