HARRISON, N.J. (AP) – Jimmy Nielsen extended his scoreless streak to 519 minutes with his fifth straight shutout, and Aurelien Collin scored his first goal in nearly a year in Sporting Kansas City’s 1-0 victory over the New York Red Bulls on Wednesday night.

Thierry Henry had a great chance to break Nielsen’s scoreless run in the 64th minute, but pushed his shot inches wide of the right post in front of a crowd of 12,338 at Red Bull Arena.

Collins, a central defender, scored for the first time since April 18, 2012, against Vancouver.

Kansas City improved to 4-1-2, and New York dropped to 2-4-2. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
