Tim Cahill's Major League Soccer debut ended in defeat on Friday, with the Socceroo star's New York Red Bulls falling 2-0 away to Houston Dynamo.
Jermaine Taylor gave the home side a second-minute lead before Calen Carr doubled the advantage in the 28th minute as in-form Houston moved two points clear of the Red Bulls at the top of the Eastern Conference with their fifth successive victory.
Cahill was named in New York's starting line-up following his recent move from Premier League club Everton. Cahill also featured in the Red Bulls' 2-1 friendly defeat to Tottenham in midweek.
