Watch: Bradley Wright-Phillips goal waved off after video review

Bradley Wright-Phillips briefly celebrated a 53rd-minute equalizer Sunday night before the referee waved off the goal following video review. 

Wright-Phillips received the ball in the center of the box and shot it past Atlanta goalkeeper Brad Guzan to even the score 1-1, but further review showed Red Bulls teammate Alex Muyl in an offside position and obstructing Guzan’s view when Wright-Phillips took his shot.

The goal was taken off the board and the Red Bulls still trailed 1-0 — until the 71st minute, when Franco Escobar doubled Atlanta’s lead in the first leg of the MLS Eastern Conference final. Escobar later assisted a Hector Villalba goal to cap a 3-0 victory for Atlanta United.
