Sporting Kansas City striker Dom Dwyer scored an excellent goal to make it 1-1 during his side’s 4-2 win over New England Revolution in an MLS clash at Sporting Park last night and was understandably happy with the performance and result.

“We were very pleased. We were disappointed to let a couple of goals in but we battled back and we did well,” Dwyer told Sporting Kansas City’s official YouTube channel.

“It was a very hard-fought game and credit to New England, they did well, but I think we deserved the three points tonight.”

The 24-year-old won the penalty that led to SKC’s third goal and his equaliser was his fourth goal in 11 appearances this season and the win lifted them up to fifth place in the Western Conference.

Dwyer believes it was “about time” SKC put in that type of performance against a strong side to secure an impressive and convincing victory in the club’s 100th game at Sporting Park.

“We needed something like this and we needed our luck to change a little bit. We were fighting against it tonight and I think we put in a very solid performance,” the Englishman added.

Sporting Kansas City travel to face the Seattle Sounders at CenturyLink Field on Saturday night in the second match of their double gameweek.

The win over the Revs will give them a huge confidence boost heading into that clash and allows them to play with a sense of freedom on the night as they would’ve probably been happy with three points from the two games this week.

How impressed were you with Dom Dwyer’s goal and Sporting Kansas City’s performance?
