In July 2020, Rodney Redes became the first official signing in the history of Austin FC, which will play as of this season in the Major League Soccer.
The Paraguayan attack, who trained at the Guarani quarry, held its first press conference as a player on the green team on Friday and talked about his adaptation to the new culture he must live in, as well as mentioning how he prepares for the start of the competition.
“I feel very good. Every day I adapt better. Adapting to the culture and the language was not easy, but I do. I am here to work and learn with the team,” he said.
He also confirmed that he is gradually “adjusting” to coach Josh Wolf’s demands and that the goals in previous friendly matches serve him a lot to continue his growth. “It will help me gain confidence and reach the championship well,” he said.
On the other hand, he talked about his dream: to play for the Paraguayan national team. “This has been my dream since I was a kid to wear the Paraguay jersey. I’m excited about it and want to be there. I’ll always work 100% and wait for the coach to call,” he said.
What a Rodney test! 👋🏼

San Lorenzo added their second successive victory in the Argentine championship, beating Central on Friday in Nuevo Gasometer. After a long time, Oscar and Angel Romero started the game and finished all the minutes.
They were both great champions in Barcelona’s victory and Angel arrived at the goal in the last minute of the match to rule in a match they had already won.
The first goal of the match was scored by the team’s top scorer, Franco de Santo, after receiving a rebound from a free kick by Oscar Romero.
In the final minutes of the match, Oscar and Angel were the main players for San Lorenzo to maintain ball possession and avoid counter-attacks from the opposing team, until the referee’s goal reached.
This led to the reaction of the midfielders, which ended with two expulsions: their captain Emiliano Vecchio and Lautaro Acosta.
With this victory, “Cuervo” rises in the table of Group A in the Professional League Cup and ranks seventh with 11 points, but only one point in the qualifying area.
