Goals and assists from African players in the United States: April 29-30

For this week’s compilation of goals and assists from African players in the top three divisions of soccer in the United States we focus on the contributions of Prince Saydee and Prosper Kasim whose teams battled in an entertaining duel from the second tier USL Championship. Former Liberia national team player Saydee did his part by assisting both goals for Hartford Athletic to give the visitors a 2-1 lead at Birmingham Legion but Ghanaian forward Kasim and his Legion teammates fought back for a 3-2 victory courtesy of Kasim’s two assists.

The 27-year-old Saydee is enjoying an excellent start to the 2023 campaign with four goals and four assists across nine appearances in all competitions while Kasim continues to be an important contributor in his fifth season for Birmingham with four assists in ten appearances. Watch all the goal contributions from Africans abroad in the United States below which also includes a fourth goal of the season from Chicago Fire and Sierra Leone’s Kei Kamara as well as Right to Dream Academy graduate Emmanuel Boateng’s first goal of the campaign for New England Revolution.
