Welcome to Boys in Not Gold, taking a look at Nashville SC’s players who are currently away on assignment.
Winger David Accam
On year-long loan to Hammarby IF in Sweden
Accam was in the starting lineup as Hammarby beat Varbergs BoIS 3-1 in the Swedish Allsvenskan. He received a 38th-minute yellow card, and was subbed out of the contest in the 59th. His team trailed 1-0 when he came off the pitch, and scored all three goals in his absence.
Hammarby turned around and drew Djurgåden 2-2 Saturday. Accam entered as a substituted in the 73rd minute, and while he was not directly involved in the play, he was part of the passing sequence that helped Hammarby come back from 1-2 down to draw the contest (player who has the ball at the beginning of the video).
Up next: Hammarby v. Kalmar FF • Sunday, 8 a.m. CDT
Defender Miguel Nazarit
On season-long loan to Independiente Santa Fe in Colombia
Nazarit was on the bench (for the first time in ages – and he has not been included in Santa Fe’s injury report) but did not enter the pitch as his squad fell to Brazil’s Fluminense in the fourth group-stage game in Copa Libertadores.
Santa Fe has to win its final two games against River Plate and Junior F.C. to have a realistic chance to continue to the knockout stage. Coming in third in the group would see the team enter the Copa Sudamericana, so even a loss tomorrow evening does not necessarily make the final group-stage game a dead-rubber match (which is probably the situation in which Nazarit could make a return to the field).
Up next: Santa Fe v. River Plate (Argentina) • Wednesday, 7:00 p.m. CDT in Copa Libertadores Group D
Goalkeeper Elliot Panicco and Defender Nick Hinds
Austin Bold fell 3-1 to New Mexico United. Panicco was an unused substitute as Austin’s backup keeper.
Hinds entered as a hafltime sub and it took him under a minute to score his first goal for the club (and just second in USL):
He was not individually responsible for either of New Mexico’s goals while he was on the pitch (though he was in on the play for the second), both of which came down to fairly epic goalkeeper malfeasance… which could help his Nashville SC teammate see the pitch eventually.
Hinds completed 21/24 passes, won 7/10 duels (1/2 aerial), and made one tackle and an interception. Impressively for the fullback position, he was fouled three times and committed only one foul. He was named Austin’s man of the match.
Up next: Austin Bold FC @ Real Monarchs SLC • Friday, 8 p.m. CDT (ESPN+)
