The Brazilian notched his first on a beautiful curling shot from just outside the box in the 77th minute of the match. With the Red Bulls down 3-2, Felipe ripped the equalizer off his right foot, sending the ball over the outstretched hands of Houston goalkeeper Joe Willis into the opposite corner of the net (Watch Goal).
Felipe put the Red Bulls ahead for good with a stunning free kick goal minutes later. The 25-year-old set up to take the kick 20-yards out, and sent a rising shot over the defensive wall and into the top right corner of the goal to give the Red Bulls a 4-3 lead in the 83rd minute (Watch Goal). The two goals were the first of his 2016 campaign, nearly equaling his total of three from last season, his first year with the Red Bulls.
The Red Bulls return to MLS action Friday, April 1 on the road against the New England Revolution in a Viernes de Futbol matchup. (7 p.m. ET, UniMás).
