The Cosmos have now been able to extend their unbeaten streak to six games and according to Head Coach and Sporting Director Giovanni Savarese are becoming closer to what he hopes the team’s identity will be this season.
New York did a terrific job with keeping San Francisco off the board, while trying to get a goal in the First Half of play. It was in the Second Half that the hard work and effort of the team really showed.
