The New York Red Bulls pulled a stunning victory over English soccer champs Chelsea in the International Champions Cup Wednesday.
With a final score of 4-2, the Red Bulls didn’t take the lead until the 69th minute with a goal by 16-year-old Tyler Adams, the Guardian reports. The American team scored 4 goals in 45 minutes against Chelsea’s new goalie Asmir Begovic in his first appearance with the team.
Incredibly, Chelsea, the Premier League Champions, lost against the Red Bull’s reserve team while its starters rested.
“It was an incredible result for us as a club,” said Red Bulls’ coach Jesse Marsch. “Tyler is finishing high school and is with the Under-17 national team. He is very alert and not afraid. He has a very big future.”
The Red Bulls will play the Portuguese club Benfica Sunday night; Chelsea will play Paris Saint-Germain Saturday night.
