Socceroo striker Tim Cahill has helped his New York Red Bulls side to a win in the CONCACAF Champions League, setting up the opener in their 2-0 win over Salvadoran outfit CD FAS.In their first group stage match of the campaign, goals from Saer Sene and Lloyd Sam were enough to give Red Bulls three points on home soil.
New York dominated the opening exchanges and were rewarded with a break-through on 11 minutes with a well-worked team goal.
Lurking at the back post Cahill leaped highest and cushioned a cross from the left wing to unselfishly play in teammate Sene, who had enough time to easily poke home from close range.
Red Bulls doubled their advantage in the second-half and were rarely troubled throughout the contest despite spurning several opportunities.
The win moved Red Bulls to second place in Group 3, three points behind leaders Montreal Impact with a game in hand.
