Goals and assists from African players abroad in the USA: June 15-16

It did not take long for Gabon national team star forward Aaron Boupendza to make an impact at new club FC Cincinnati! After arriving from Saudi club Al-Shabab on July 5 for a large sum of €6.5 million, much is expected of the 26-year-old but he showed encouraging signs by scoring on his debut after coming on as a substitute. Boupendza’s goal put the finishing touches on a 3-1 victory for Cincinnati on Saturday against Nashville and the club is currently at the top of the league table.

Watch Boupendza’s goal below as well as all goals and assists from African players in the top three divisions of American soccer.
