Frank Lampard got his first goal for New York FC today after being with the club for over a year. Frank Lampard joined the club at the start of last season but moved to Manchester City on loan and decided to extend his loan until the end of last season meaning he only joined New York City FC fully in June
In the clash against Toronto FC, Lampard was making only his fifth appearance for the club and it took only 20 minutes of that match for the Chelsea legend to show the entire New York what he is all about as Andrea Pirlo played Allen through on the right before the full back cut the ball back to Lampard on the edge of the area. The 37 year old did not make the kind of contact we normally associate with him but he got enough on the ball to see a bouncing shot evade the grasp of the Toronto goalkeeper and give NYCFC the lead. Patrick Mullens got the second goal for New York City as they went on to claim a 2-0 win in the game.
Andrea Pirlo also turned in a phenomenal performance in the match and notched the assist for the second game. Teammates and pundits alike were full of praise for both Lampard and Pirlo following impressive displays by both players.
