Hey, we didn’t get around to this post last week. So here’s a double-dose.
Out on loan
Vinnie Vermeer – With Las Vegas Lights through 2019 season
Las Vegas lost to New Mexico United to finish its inaugural season with an 11-15-4 mark, 13th in the USL West. Vermeer started and went 90 minutes. He completed 88.9% of his 54 passes, won 5/8 duels, and made two total tackles in the losing effort.
There has not been official word on a return to Nashville SC.
Joining in January
David Accam – with Columbus Crew until Jan. 1, 2019
Aníbal Godoy – with San Jose Earthquakes until Jan. 1, 2019
Both of their seasons have ended. Godoy had to come hang with ya boy, though:
Godoy made it to Nashville SC’s playoff opener with his kids as he and his wife prepare to move permanently to Nashville.
Randall Leal – with Deportivo Saprissa until January transfer window
Oct. 16, Leal started and went 90 minutes in a 2-1 league victory for Saprissa over Cartaginés. He scored a 36th-minute goal, which stood up as the game-winner.
Oct. 21, Leal started at left wing and played 71 minutes in a 6-0 Saprissa victory against 10th-place (of 12 teams) Limón.
Oct. 24, Saprissa returned to Concacaf League play (though Los Morados have already qualified for the Concacaf Champions League by advancing this far, so there’s minimal benefit of advancing). They lost the away leg of a two-legged tie to Honduran champions Olímpia 2-0. Leal started and went 90 minutes, completing 29/33 passes and taking two shots.
Sunday, Saprissa returned to league play, beating Herediano 2-1. Leal started and went 90 minutes, assisting Christian Bolaños for his team’s opening goal.
Up next: Saprissa plays the home leg against Olímpia in the Concacaf League semifinal Thursday at 9 p.m. CDT. You can stream the game here.
Hany Mukhtar – with Brøndby IF until January transfer window
Oct. 20, Brøndby beat Lyngby 3-0 in league play. Mukhtar started and played 88 minutes in the victory.
Sunday, Mukhtar scored the fourth of five goals in Brøndby’s 5-2 pasting of Randers. It looked like this:
To me, that’s good.
Earlier today, Brøndby was eliminated by SønderjyskE, 1-0 in the Danish Cup quarterfinal. Mukhtar started and missed a golden attempt shortly before halftime.
Up next: Brøndby returns to league action Monday, traveling to Silkeborg at Noon CST.
