HARRISON, NJ. (March 24, 2018) -- A week can make a world of difference in MLS. After winning back-to-back matches, Minnesota United faced its stiffest test of the young season yet as it headed to face New York Red Bulls with a backline entirely overhauled by international call-ups and injuries. Missing captain Francisco Calvo and Michael Boxall, the team was without its starting centerback tandem and injuries to fullbacks Tyrone Mears and Jerome Thiesson meant a much younger and greener team would take the pitch. For their part, Red Bulls would at last get to field a team that was mostly regular starters for the first time in MLS this season. Although MNUFC started the match on the front foot, an early goal by midfielder Alex Muyl and a brace by forward Bradley Wright-Phillips sent Minnesota United home with a 3-0 loss.
