BRAZILIAN WINGER REGISTERS FIRST ASSIST FOR MLS SIDE

The MLS season is less than two months old and there have been some surprise teams already staking a claim for the regular season title. There has also been an influx of new signings to the league and some have taken to the league instantly.

Columbus Crew SC forward Robinho signed for the MLS outfit in the offseason and has had to adjust to his new surroundings in the USA.  The weather is also a massive difference from the sunny and humid temperature experienced in Brazil.

The winger experienced this new weather in his last match for the Crew at home to MLS Cup champions Atlanta United at the MAPFRE Stadium. The match was played under tough conditions as the weather was rainy and windy during the first half. The referee had to stop the game for almost an hour after the pitch became flooded.

Despite these terrible conditions,Robinho was able to provide his first assist in the MLS as he made the pass to Gyasi Zardes who made no mistake to double his side’s advantage. The Brazilian was also impressive with his running and constantly kept the opposition fullback busy.
