ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Orlando City’s Kaka scored in extra time to give the Lions a 1-1 tie with New York City FC in the expansion teams’ first Major League Soccer game Sunday in front of an announced crowd of 62,510.

New York appeared to be to be on its way to the victory in the 76th minute when Mix Diskerud took a pass from David Villa just outside 18-yard box, pushed it with one touch inside the box and rifled a curling shot that sneaked inside the far post.

But in the 91st minute, Orlando was awarded a free kick after Kevin Molino was fouled 10 yards outside the box. On the ensuing play, Kaka got it past Josh Saunders on a deflection off New York’s wall.
