Hector Jimenez’s goal against D.C. on April 19 was the fifth of his career and first in a Crew jersey -- coming at the perfect time in the 90th minute of the match to secure a 1-1 draw. The goal also marked the fifth Crew player to score in 2014 as Jimenez, Justin Meram and Jairo Arrieta each have a goal. Those three players trail Bernardo Anor (two goals) and Federico Higuain (four goals) on the team’s leaderboard.
Thierry Henry did not record a shot in his last visit to Crew Stadium on May 4, 2013 (and did not play in the last meeting of 2013). Limiting his effectiveness is an obvious strategy as the Frenchman has only played two total matches at Crew Stadium. Henry’s only other match in Columbus was lethal for the Black & Gold, as Henry’s brace gave New York a 4-1 win at Crew Stadium on April 7, 2012.
