Frank Lampard scores unusual goal against New England Revolution

Published Add your comment

Frank Lampard’s New York City FC career has taken an upturn over the past couple of weeks.

The former England international has scored three goals in his previous four appearances for New York City, who currently occupy pole position in the MLS Eastern Conference.

Lampard scored the only goal of the game in his team’s 1-0 victory over New England Revolution on Wednesday night - and it was one of the more bizarre goals of his career. (Scroll down this page to watch the video).

Vieira pleased with team's recent form

“We are doing well, of course, because of those three players, four players that you mentioned, and a really good period,” Patrick Vieira, New York City’s head coach, was quoted as saying by the Daily Mail when asked about Lampard, David Villa and Andrea Pirlo.

“They are playing really good. They are dictating the tempo of our game and I think the way we want to play suits them really well and, of course, you need element players to perform.”

The former Arsenal star added: “We look solid in every position and I think if you come here, you need your 11 players to perform and tonight everyone was on the field to perform and perform well for the team.”

Lampard has turned it around at New York

Vieira has helped to turn around the fortunes of Lampard, who was named as “the worst signing in MLS history” back in May.

Nobody is thinking that after his recent eye-catching performances; it’s clear that Lampard, whose season was hampered by injuries last term, wants to succeed in America. He isn’t there simply for one last big pay day.

Lampard was even booed by his own fans last season, but told supporters they needed to be aware of the injury problems he’d been struggling with.

“I don’t think the fans are aware of the injury I had,” the midfielder was quoted as saying by the official MLS website. “If I’m getting booed for being injured, then there’s not much I can do about that.”
