We’re at an international window, which means plenty of Nashville SC players headed out to wear the crests of their countries. Those, plus the typical loan contingent in this edition of Not Gold.

Midfielder Aníbal Godoy

On international duty with Panama

Godoy captained Panama against Costa Rica and went the distance in the 0-0 draw. He completed a team-high 58/64 passes in the match.

He repeated the captain/full-90 routine in the 3-0 win against Jamaica. He completed 36/37 passes and made one ball recovery as his team dominated the Reggae Boyz.
