The stars aligned for New York FC yesterday as Andrea Pirlo, David Villa and Frank Lampard all scored in the same game for the first time.

The trio fired New York to a close 3-2 win over Philadelphia Union at Yankee Stadium but the victory didn't automatically result in celebrations from all the players.

Lampard approached fellow superstar David Villa after the match to offer his congratulations only for the Spanish striker to start berating him in front of the cameras.

Whatever angered Villa seemed to be significant as Spain's top scorer appeared visibly annoyed with his team-mate.
