NYRB keeper Robles: We're very grateful Cahill is in our team

New York Red Bulls goalkeeper Luis Robles spoke highly of teammate Tim Cahill after the weekend's 2-2 draw with New England Revolution.

The Australian midfielder came up with another clutch goal, heading home in the 97th minute, to help guide the Red Bulls into the MLS playoffs.

The goal was the former Everton star's 10th of the season and it drew high praise from Robles who suggests the rest of the New York side is very lucky to have a player of his quality on their team.

"He embodies everything this team wants to be, from the character to just the hard work and he has had an incredible season," Robles said.

"Without Tim we wouldn't be in the position that we are in. That's why he's an elite player, that's why he has accomplished all that he has and we're very, very, very grateful that he's in our team."
