Sean Johnson says MLS Cup Playoff run ‘means everything’ to NYCFC

New York City FC goalkeeper Sean Johnson says it would “mean everything” to lead the club to MLS Cup glory.

After failing to go beyond the Eastern Conference semi-final stage in their previous five Playoff campaigns, NYCFC beat the New England Revolution on penalties on Tuesday night after a 2-2 draw across 120 minutes.

Up next is a trip to the Philadelphia Union in the Eastern Conference final. Safe to say, it’s all on the line in the battle for a place at MLS Cup.

“This game means everything. Winning means everything, chasing a trophy for this Club means everything,” Johnson told reporters after Tuesday’s match.

“As a captain, it was incredible to see the support, our supporter section was unbelievable. They were loud. Our families traveled up to the game, so I think this meant everything and every game now has a significance, and every game is a step to what we want to achieve and ultimately that is the MLS Cup.”
