Wanyama fires CF Montreal past New York Red Bulls in dramatic MLS encounter

The Harambee Star scored a penalty in the added minutes to ensure his Canadian side emerged victorious at home

Kenya international Victor Wanyama scored a late penalty to enable CF Montreal to pick up a 2-1 win over New York Red Bulls at Saputo Stadium on Saturday night.

There was a dramatic end to the game when goalkeeper Carlos Miguel Coronel saved two penalties in stoppage time, but a VAR review saw Wanyama's side given the chance to take the penalty three times as the Brazilian had stepped off his line during the process.

Boran Johansen's run in stoppage time resulted in a penalty for Montreal and the first spot-kick was taken by the Norwegian, only to be stopped by Coronel.
