Late Kaka goal earns Orlando draw against New York City

09 March 2015, 09:31

New York - Brazilian Kaka's deflected goal off a free kick in stoppage time helped Orlando City salvage a 1-1 draw with New York City in a battle of Major League Soccer newcomers on Sunday.

In his MLS debut, the former AC Milan and Real Madrid midfielder's shot from 25 yards in the 91st minute struck a New York defender before deflecting past goalkeeper Josh Saunders.

Earlier, a well-placed goal by midfielder Mix Diskerud in the 76th minute gave New York the lead in front of a sellout crowd of more than 62,000 at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando.

Orlando appeared headed for defeat when defender Aurélien Collin was sent off after 83 minutes for a rash tackle on Spanish striker David Villa, who was also on his MLS debut.

But Kaka stepped up to earn the home team a point and send the crowd into a frenzy.
