VIDEO: New England Revolution’s Chris Tierney levels 2014 MLS Cup final, 1-1


Keeping the theme of childhood-fans-turned-first-team-stars going (Gyasi Zardes, too), Chris Tierney has put the New England Revolution back on level terms in the 2014 MLS Cup final (above video).

Tierney, 28, who is from nearby Wellesley, Massachusetts, talked at length this week about the pride he feels in representing his boyhood club in MLS’s championship game.

Patrick Mullins, only in the game seven minutes earlier, latched onto an over-the-top ball down the left channel, beating Omar Gonzalez to it before cutting back to an inside-cutting Tierney, who himself left Leonardo behind. LA Galaxy goalkeeper Jaime Penedo got a foot on the shot but the ball carried on and snuck inside the far post.
