MLS: Lille saves Nashville’s draw against Philadelphia | Sports

NASHVILLE, Tennessee (AFP) – Costa Rica quarterback Randall Leal scored an 85th-minute penalty when Nashville opened the doors to Geodes Park in a 1-1 draw with Philadelphia Union on Sunday.

The Nashville match extended its unbeaten record to 20, the seventh longest streak in league history. Nashville is unbeaten (3-3-3) in its last 19 games at Nissan Stadium. The new 30,000-seat stadium is the largest football stadium only in the United States and Canada. Nashville started the season with eight straight road games.

Al-Ittihad (5-1-3), which entered the match at the top of the eastern standings, advanced 1-0 in the 66th minute with a goal by Mikael Ohri.

Lille scored the equalizer after Philadelphia midfielder Jose Martinez called a handball inside the penalty area in a corner kick No. 12 for Nashville from the match.

In another game, the New York City host broke the scoreless tie with a three-goal explosion late in the second half and Shawn Johnson saved three shots in a 3-0 win over the San Jose Earthquakes.

Keaton Parks scored the first goal for New York City (4-3-1) in the 74th minute in a back-and-forth with Brazilian striker Talise Magno. His compatriot Gabriel Pereira scored the second goal from inside the penalty area after four minutes. Chris Gloucester capped the scoring when he hit a high pass and beat San Jose goalkeeper GT Marcinkowski with a shot down the left side in the 88th minute.
