Ghana winger Solomon Asante made another team of the week appearance after playing an inspiring role in Phoenix Rising’s big win over LA Galaxy II on matchday 13 of the USL.
The tricky attacked scored and provided three assists as the Western Conference champions whitewashed LA Galaxy II 5-0 at the Wild Horse Pass stadium.
The two times United Soccer League player of the year, has now scored 8 goals and provided six assists in the ongoing season.
He is second on the goal scoring chart and competes with no one at the top of the assists table.
According to the USL, “Asante earned 40 percent of the ballot to claim the honor. Sacramento Republic FC’s Tucker Bone earned 27 percent after recording both goals in his side’s 2-1 win against Las Vegas Lights FC last Wednesday night, while San Antonio FC’s Nathan Fogaca finished third on 20 percent for his two-goal performance in SAFC’s 3-2 win against Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC on Saturday afternoon.”
