South Georgia Tormenta FC new acquisition Rodney Michael has expressed his delight after coming on for his debut in their 3-1 win over Greenville Triumph SC on Saturday.
 
Michael’s side dominated the USL League One defending champions Greenville Triumph at Erk Russell Park.
 
Goals from Lars Eckenrode, Nick O’Callaghan and Marco Micaletto were enough as they held to a good victory.
 
“It means a lot. It has always been my dream to play professional football,” Michael told FSL News.
 
“I’ve been working towards this dream since I was 11 years old at the Craig Bellamy Foundation. It felt amazing to see that dream become a reality as I made my pro debut.”
 
The Sierra Leone youth international was introduced in the last 34 min to mark his professional debut.
 
During his three seasons at the University of California Santa Barbara, he scored 23 goals and recorded 15 assists in 58 starts. In 2019, Michael helped UC Santa Barbara advance to the NCAA Soccer Quarterfinal Championships.
 
He was part of the Sierra Leone U20 side during the doubleheader of the African Cup of Nations U20 2019 qualifiers against Guinea Bissau.
