By Ian Ennis – New York Red Bulls rookie Mike Grella inked his name in the club record books in the match against Crew SC last weekend. The striker took advantage of poor back pass by the Crew defense to score the game winner in the 2-1 victory which just so happened to be the 1,000 goal in club history.
Grella’s finish was powered by the Nike Tiempo. And this could be a big move for Grella. He was spotted wearing the Nike Mercurial Vapor earlier this year making us wonder whether this blacked out cleat is something new coming down the line.
The 1,000 goal puts the Red Bulls in rare company. They are only the 5th club to reach the milestone joining the LA Galaxy, DC United, FC Dallas, and Crew SC.
And it also helped the Red Bulls climb to the top of the Eastern Conference with 7 points. The Red Bulls continue their push for yet another Eastern Conference Championship when they travel to rivals DC United for a first vs. second clash of the East on April 11th.
Nike Tiempo cleats are available at World Soccer Shop.
