Victor Mansaray makes first Sounders appearance

Sierra Leone striker, Victor Mansaray (in action) last Saturday made his first appearance for Seattle the Sounders since returning from his loan spell with FC Cincinnati.

The 20-year-old who was recalled to the Sounders in June came off the bench the 67th minute for Bruin.

Clint Dempsey scored the equaliser for Seattle in the 44th minute as the Sounders drew 1-1 with Eintracht Frankfurt in an international friendly before 40,667 at CenturyLink Field.

A few minutes after his cameo, the Sierra Leone international forced the Frankfurt keeper into a low diving save after he headed in a cross from Nouhou at close range.

He nearly had another chance in the box but his first touch betrayed him and the ball was knocked out for a corner.

Mansaray played 328 minutes and made four all-competitions starts during his loan spell.

He was a sub five times in league play with three starts in the league and one in the Open Cup.

In the U.S North American Soccer League (NASL), midfielder, Michael Lahoud was pivotal for Miami FC in their 7-0 thrashing of San Francisco Deltas. The Sierra Leone international who had full-time action also accounted for an assist in Stefano four goals thriller.

Mohamed Buya Turay and his AFC Eskilstuna continue to rack at the bottom of the Swedish league table as they were again defeated 1-0 by Sirius. Despite the full-time action, the Sierra Leone forward was unable to find the back of the net. Another Sierra Leonean who was at the defeating end was Ishmael Koroma whose Nykoping suffered a 3-1 defeat to Vasteras.

John Kamara and his Kaisar squad also suffered 2-0 defeat to Astana in the Kazastahn top flight league while in Iceland, midfielder Kwame Quee’s Víkingur Ólafsvík moved away from the relegation zone after a 0-2 away win over FH VS. Quee was substituted in 90+2 minutes.
