Johnson: The Team Had My Back
NYCFC had a big weekend facing off against Minnesota United FC on their opening night of Allianz Field. Both teams came away with one point, and three goals apiece - one being an own goal as a result of a rare mistake by Sean Johnson.
Time and time again, the Etihad Player of the Month for March has been the 'keeper this team has looked to in the big moments. When a mishap occurs, as they inevitably will for the last line of defense, it's up to the rest of the team to show they have their teammate's back.
That's just what happened in Minnesota, as James Sands explains...
James told reporters: “I think on any other day that doesn’t happen. You can’t really blame him, he’s saved us in three or four games, so it happens.
"No one wants to go through that, but it’s going to happen to all of us at some point or another. I think it was good of Anton [Tinnerholm] especially, it shows that people have your back, and as I said, mistakes are going to happen, but you’re going to have to move past it. I thought he played great the rest of the game.”
