Nashville SC has some players out seeing the world – a soccer rumspringa of sorts – and it’s time to learn what they’re up to.
Defender Walker Zimmerman
On All-Star duty with MLS
Zimmerman was not selected the captain of the all-star team (that honor went to Cristian Roldan of the Seattle Sounders), but should see some time for the team against the Liga MX All-Stars last night (and hopefully come out before risking any sort of injury).
Up next: MLS All-Stars v. Liga MX All-Stars • 8:30 p.m. CDT TONIGHT (FS1)
Winger David Accam
On loan to Hammarby IF in Sweden
Accam entered as an 80th-minute substitute in Hammarby’s 3-1 Europa Conference League loss to Switzerland’s FC Basel. The game was actually tied 1-1 when he came onto the pitch so… not great! Hammarby has the home leg coming up tomorrow to make up the deficit.
He was then an unused substitute on the bench in the club’s 2-2 draw against IF Elfsborg in the Allsvenskan.
Up next: Hammarby v. FC Basel (Switzerland) in the UEFA Conference League • Noon CDT Thursday
Hammaby v. Malmö in the Allsvenskan • 10:30 a.m. CDT Sunday
Midfielder Irakoze Donasiyano
On loan to OKC Energy FC in USL Championship
Donasiyano was an unused substitute in Sunday’s scoreless draw against Louisville City FC.
Up next: OKC Energy FC v. Rio Grande Valley Toros • 5 p.m. CDT Sunday (ESPN+)
Defender Tom Judge
On loan to Pittsburgh Riverhounds in USL Championship
Judge was not in the squad for Wednesday’s scoreless draw against Tampa Bay Rowdies.
He came off the bench late in Sunday’s 4-1 win over Atlanta United 2. His first action on the pitch was a poor clearance followed by an aggressive tackle that… maybe could have been a penalty (but went unpunished, and this is a results-based charting service). In just over 30 minutes, he completed 6/10 passes, won 2/6 duels (1/5 aerial), whipped in one cross, and made one tackle and one interception as a left wingback.
Up next: Pittsburgh Riverhounds @ Hartford Athletic • Sunday, 6:00 p.m. CDT (ESPN+)
Defender Miguel Nazarit
On loan to Independiente Santa Fe in Colombia
Nazarit has yet to see the pitch or make the bench in the Liga BetPlay Clausura. He is off Santa Fe’s injury report, but was still not in the squad for a 1-1 draw against Deportivo Pereira. The draw keeps Independiente 17th in Liga BetPlay.
Up next: Independiente Santa Fe v. Atlético Bucaramanga in Copa Colombiana • 2:00 p.m. CDT Thursday
Independiente v. América de Calí in Liga BetPlay • 6:05 p.m. Sunday
Defender Nick Hinds and goalkeeper Elliot Panicco
On season-long loans to Austin Bold FC in USL Championship. Nashville has right of recall if necessary.
Panicco and Hinds both started and went the distance in a 1-1 draw against RGV Toros. Panicco made a single save and allowed the goal, and completed 10/14 passes with Bold opting to play mostly out of the back.
Hinds completed 16/22 passes and 1/4 crosses. He won 6/8 duels (2/2 aerial!), made two tackles, a clearance, and three interceptions, and won two fouls while committing just one. TBH that seems pretty TOTW-worthy, though he was not selected.
Up next: Austin Bold @ Colorado Springs Switchbacks • Saturday, 8:00 p.m. CDT (ESPN+)
