The reigning Major League Soccer champions have endured a difficult start to their 2022 campaign. 

NYCFC concluded week 2 with another disappointing result, drawing 0-0 against the Vancouver Whitecaps after falling 1-0 to the LA Galaxy in their season opener. 

Despite another scoreless match, however, head coach Ronny Deila walked away from Saturday’s game in high spirits and strong belief that the foundation for success exists. 

“I think we were much better than them,” Deila said. “We had, I don’t know, six, seven, eight chances. We didn’t take our chances and we gave them maybe one, two.

“It was really good energy. It was a lot of good energy and fight into the team, and also we created enough to win. We know we have players that will start scoring. We knew exactly how they were gonna play. It was a lot about balance in the counterattacks. It was about moving the ball well so we get them into the last third as much as possible.”
