City Show Heart to Draw in Ohio
While Dome Torrent will be eager to start turning draws into wins, there is never any shame with coming away with a point from a road game, especially with the distances involved with travel in MLS.
NYCFC had to come back twice to recover deficits in this game, against a Columbus Crew who were celebrating the career of Zack Steffen in his farewell appearance before joining up with Man City.
It took belief and grit to come back twice and refuse to be beaten, just as it did in Minnesota on their big day.
This kind of character matters most later on in the campaign, so it will have please Dome no end to see his team pick themselves up, not once but twice.
