Kouassi scores in 86th as Revs tie New York City FC, 2-2

NEW YORK - Xavier Kouassi scored his first MLS goal in the 86th minute and the New England Revolution tied New York City FC 2-2 on Wednesday night.

It was the first time this season New York City (6-6-2) has allowed a goal in the final 15 minutes.

Both goals by New England (4-6-4) came on headers. In the 24th minute, Kei Kamara headed in Lee Nguyen's corner kick to tie it at 1. On Kouassi's goal, Kelyn Rowe chipped it across the goal to find Kouassi at the back post.

David Villa's run in the 16th minute set up Jack Harrison's easy tap in to open the scoring for NYC. Villa took a pass near midfield, weaved through the defense to get to the corner of the 6-yard box and squared it across goal for an open Harrison.

NYC took a 2-1 in the 64th minute on Miguel Camargo's header. He entered as a sub three minutes earlier.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scores stunning bicycle kick goal in Revs' win over Galaxy

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scores stunning bicycle kick goal in Revs' win over Galaxy

The New England Revolution got back on track Sunday with an impressive 2-1 win over the Los Angeles Galaxy.

But the Galaxy made their lone goal count.

Star Galaxy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic got L.A. on the board in the 84th minute with a ridiculous bicycle kick that deserves mention as one of the best goals of the year.

Check out Ibrahimovic's goal in the video above.

Ibrahimovic had two Revs defenders on him in the box but displayed impressive body control to shield both players before getting acrobatic for his 11th goal in 12 games for the Galaxy.

The Revs held strong, however, as Bruce Arena earned his first win as New England's head coach against the team he coached for nearly a decade from 2008 to 2016.
