EDMONTON -- FC Edmonton winger Sainey Nyassi has been named ot the North American Soccer league's (NASL) Team of the Month after multiple strong performances in September.


His first start of the month against the Indy Eleven ended in reward for the Gambian and FC Edmonton. Nyassi opened the scoring with the eventual game winner in the 31st minute after controlling captain Nik Ledgerwood's pass and hammering his shot into the left side of the net past goalkeeper Jon Busch.

A week later, Nyassi turned provider on the road against the San Francisco Deltas by delivering a perfect cross to the streaking head of Dustin Corea, who tapped his header home in a 2-1 loss for the Eddies. Corea's finish earned the Salvadoran NASL Play of the Week honours with Nyassi's cross earning equal praise.
