"He was a wall back there for us."
Those are the words of Michael Parkhurst after Brad Guzan's man-of-the-match performance against NYCFC over the weekend.

Guzan racked up a franchise record nine saves over the course of the match to help Atlanta United become the first team to get a result at Yankee Stadium so far this year. He was a commanding presence in his box, claiming the ball out of the air 18 times. Witness some of his MONSTER performance below:
