Bradley Wright-Phillips Continues To Climb Scoring Ranks

Bradley Wright-Phillips added to his goal totals - both against New York City FC and against all of MLS.

BWP scored twice against NYCFC on Sunday night, bringing his goal totals against them to 10 in just eight MLS games.

Despite the accomplishments, he said his goals don't mean much if the team doesn't win.

"I’ve tried to explain this before, I don’t care about goals as much as you think," Wright-Phillips said. "I mean, I obviously want to score, but we lost to our rivals today. And we’re not going to get joy from that.”

Wright-Phillips now has 82 career MLS goals, which has him tied for No. 14 in league history. BWP is now in a three-way tie for 14th in MLS history with Brian Ching and Raul Diaz Arce.

Per Opta, Wright-Phillips’ 15 braces since joining MLS in 2013 are the most by any player over that time.

"He really relishes the big stage and the big moments of these big games and he’s clearly been, if you go over the history,  the best player over the two and a half years," Head Coach Jesse Marsch said. "Bradley is an amazing guy, an amazing leader on our team and a great player. Two great goals."

Across all competitions, Wright-Phillips has 91 career goals for the Red Bulls.
