MSG Networks and the Red Bulls will honor Shep Messing, who grew up in Roslyn, and Steve Cangialosi on Wednesday night for their 20 years together working Red Bulls games.

Messing, a former U.S. National Team goalkeeper, and Cangialosi have been at it so long they first called MLS games when the team still was known as the MetroStars. Their first game together was on March 23, 2002, when the Metrostars defeated New England, 3-1. Cangialosi was the host and sideline reporter at the time, and later moved to the play-by-play role alongside Messing.

On Wednesday, the Red Bulls will host Atlanta United on MSG+.
