Chris Armas

Chris Armas Has High Praise for Entire Roster

A collective effort of stand-out play helped lead the New York Red Bulls past the New England Revolution on Saturday at Red Bull Arena.

From Marc Rzatkowski, who sent in the set piece cross to assist the first goal...

"Marc, we know, serves a great ball," Head Coach Chris Armas said. "That's why we have him on a lot of set pieces. He's around the ball a lot and he whips in a good ball."

To Daniel Royer, who was on the receiving end of Rzatkowski's cross...

"Danny does a good job operating on the back post," Armas said. "His timing is always excellent and he has a good knack for being around the goal. We've seen that many times now."

To Bradley Wright-Phillips, who scored his 99th career MLS regular season goal, off a header in the 80th minute...

"When you have Bradley Wright-Phillips in the game, he's always dangerous and he's always a threat," Armas said. "I thought he was great tonight, again."

To Tyler Adams, who played out wide in the midfield for the first time this season...

"Tyler is incredible -- he does whatever you ask -- he does whatever the team needs," Armas said. "He's a guy that plays for the team and runs for the team and gives everything."

To Michael Amir Murillo, who pushed up in the second half to give the Red Bulls a lot of chances...

"You could see the quality that he has," Armas said. "You could see why he had great moments at the World Cup. You could see why he's been a starter for us. He has an ability to get forward. He defended against one of the better 1-v-1 attackers in the league. He has a lot of confidence and is still a young guy that plays beyond his years."

Armas had high praise for nearly every player in his lineup on Saturday night, mentioning Aaron Long, Aurelien Collin, Tim Parker and others as he wrapped up the 2-0 win at Red Bull Arena on Saturday night.
