New York Red Bulls coach Hans Backe isn't getting carried away by the Major League Soccer outfit's friendly win over Paris Saint-Germain.

Joel Lindpere's first-half goal gave the Red Bulls a 1-0 win in Saturday's opening match of the annual Emirates Cup tournament at Arsenal's north London stadium, but Backe knows his team still has plenty to prove.

The Red Bulls play Arsenal on Sunday and Backe says even the return of Thierry Henry and Rafael Marquez to the lineup after they sat out the opener may not be enough to disrupt the hosts' famously free-flowing possession football.

Backe says he had been mainly concerned ''that we shouldn't embarrass ourselves, so today it was OK. It will be 10 times worse tomorrow.''
