VANCOUVER — Earlier this season, Daniel Royer couldn’t buy a goal.
Now, it seems that just about everything he touches turns to goal.
After Saturday night’s 2-2 draw with Vancouver Whitecaps FC, the Austrian midfielder has scored five times in his last five matches. That meant Royer has 10 goals this Major League Soccer season.
“I think it’s just about little things and details,” he said. “I think I’m doing the same things as at the beginning of the season, I’m always trying to work hard and I know the opportunities will come and we’ll always create chances. I think I’m more calm when I get the final chances to score. But there are not big changes to the beginning of the season.”
Royer, who scored the first and final goals of the match, felt the Red Bulls deserved at least a point at B.C. Place.
“I think it was really important to bounce back and at least get a point out of this game,” he said. “I think we’ve been the better team today, I think we controlled most parts of the game but haven’t been the best at set pieces on the day. I think more was possible but it was still great to bounce back late in the game.”
