Uganda’s former national skipper Ibrahim Sekagya played ninety minutes in the first leg of the Major League Soccer Conference Finals at the Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey as his side New York Red Bulls lost 2-1 early this morning in the United States of America.

Sekagya, was in the thick of things in the first leg of the hotly contested game with him getting booked in the 43rd minute of the game. The visitors took the lead in the 17th minute when Teal Bunbury took the ball on the right, touched it around Red Bull’s Amboise Oyongo and struck a left-footed drive from just outside the area that curled inside the left post.

Red Bull’s Bradley Wright-Phillips tied the match in the 27th minute but will miss the second leg after his second yellow card of the playoffs in the 60th minute for challenging New England goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth as he attempted to put the ball back into play.

Jermaine Jones, scored the all important away goal for the Revolution in the 86 minute giving his side a good advantage going into the return leg this Saturday at the Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts.
