GALLERY: Exclusive images from New York Red Bulls’ win over DC United

The New York Red Bulls sealed their place in the Eastern Conference Final with a cagey 1-0 win over DC United at Red Bull Arena on Sunday night to win the tie 2-0 on aggregate.

DC failed to offer much in terms of attacks, despite the fact they travelled to the Red Bulls knowing they needed to score at least once to stand a chance of progressing.

The Red Bulls were on course to advance to the Eastern Conference Final with the scores at 0-0 for most of the game, until Bradley Wright-Phillips popped up with a stoppage time goal to put things beyond any doubt for Jesse Marsch’s side.

The Supporters’ Shield winners will now face Columbus Crew over two legs in the Eastern final to decide who advances to the 2015 MLS Cup Final.

Check out some exclusive photos from the game at Red Bull Arena on Sunday night below, courtesy of Ashley Marshall.
