MOST COMMENTED

[MLS] A crowd of 23,644 came to the University of Phoenix Stadium to watch Mexican star Rafael Marquez,who joined the New York Red Bulls from Barcelona in midseason 2010, play against the club with which he began his pro career, Atlas of Mexico.

Marquez converted a last-minute penalty kick Tuesday night to earn the Red Bulls a 1-1 tie with Atlas of Mexico.

Atlas, for which Marquez played 77 games from 1996 to 1999, took a 1-0 lead in the 78th minute when his central defensive partner, Tim Ream, deflected a cross from Edgar Pacheco into the Red Bulls net.

In the final minute Joel Lindpere drew a foul in the penalty area and after waiting out a short delay, Marquez coolly rolled the ball past keeper Jose Canales after faking him the wrong way. Former Chicago Fire defender Wilman Conde was on the bench for Atlas but didn’t get into the match.

New York 1, Club Atlas de Guadalajara 1
Goals:
