Eric Alexander is a central midfielder by nature and a right midfielder by necessity. On Wednesday night, Alexander, the great team player, reminded the soccer world how versatile he really is. He started the game at left midfield and he wound up celebrating his 26th birthday two days later in the best possible way, playing a strong game and helping set up both Red Bulls' goals in their 2-1 victory over the Philadelphia Union.

NEW YORK RED BULLS RECENT NEWS

RETURN ENGAGEMENT

ALEXANDER THE GREAT AND VERSATILE
Midfielder shifts to the left and shifts the Red Bulls into high gear and to a win

Eric Alexander set up both Red Bulls goals. Eric Alexander is a central midfielder by nature and a right midfielder by necessity. On Wednesday night, Alexander, the great team player, reminded the soccer world how versatile he really is. He started the game at left midfield and he wound up celebrating his 26th birthday two days later in the best possible way, playing a strong game and helping set up both Red Bulls' goals in their 2-1 victory over the Philadelphia Union.

THE SHORT CORNER
What we liked and didn't like

Ibrahim Sekagya's red card late in the match was a controversial one. The Red Bulls won on Wednesday night (finally!) in a match that wasn't always pretty but got the end result. Now with that first win under their belt, New York heads into a weekend without soccer to get ready for the Houston Dynamo next Wednesday night.

THANKS, THEY NEEDED THAT
Red Bulls secure 1st win of the season

Bradley Wright-Phillips: I think everybody was just working, everybody was working. Even when we lost our shape we worked hard. When you do that, you've always got a chance." Finally, a win from New York, which got into the 'W' column on Wednesday night in a 2-1 home result over derby rival Philadelphia Union. That the Red Bulls needed this result is a bit of an understatement, even if they won't admit to it.

THE FIRST ONE
Henry, Sam score as Red Bulls edge Union

Thierry Henry tallied the first Red Bulls goal. One thing is certain for the Red Bulls this season. They won't tie the LA Galaxy for futility by a defending Supporters Shield champion. In 2003, the Galaxy endured an eight-game winless streak at the start of the MLS season after winning the regular-season crown the prior season. Thanks to goals by Thierry Henry and Lloyd Sam and some playmaking by Eric Alexander, the Red Bulls snapped their season-opening skid at six games with a 2-1 victory over the Philadelphia Union before 14,768 at Red Bull Arena Wednesday night.

A TALE OF TWO EXTREMES
Red Bulls will try to start, finish better

Thierry Henry: "We are reacting every time instead of acting and its about time that we can start the game like we finish them and also play 90 minutes like we played the second half against D.C." It's not necessarily how you start, but how you finish, they say. Well, the Red Bulls are having problems with two aspects of the game.
