Top Moments of the Year #5: Comeback at Rio Tinto

There were plenty of memorable moments for Vancouver Whitecaps FC in 2014, but we’ve narrowed it down to the top five. Starting today, whitecapsfc.com release a new video every day leading up to the Top Moment of the Year on Wednesday, December 31.


To kick things off, we take you back to Rio Tinto Stadium on April 26.

The ‘Caps got off to a disastrous start, conceding two goals inside the opening 10 minutes.

But the Blue and White hung around, clawed their way back into the match, and eventually earned a 2-2 draw thanks to a stoppage-time stunner.

So, how’d they do it?

And what did that comeback do for the mentality of the team?

Steven Beitashour, Carl Robinson, Nicolas Mezquida and Sebastian Fernandez answer those questions and more in the above video.

Make sure to check back tomorrow for our fourth best moment of the year.
