Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, welcome to this Friday's version of Lion Links! This week will be a magical journey, with another new Pride player in the fold (and possibly more coming soon), and I am incredibly glad to have you going on this with me. Without further ado, here are the links.
Kevin Molino Ready For 2016
After tearing his ACL in a friendly match in 2015, Kevin Molino is set and ready to go for 2016. After a good start to 2015, Molino was blossoming into one of the best wingers in the league with a very promising season ahead of him until a devastating injury. Thankfully, Molino will be back tearing up the pitch with Kaka, leading Orlando to an MLS Cup.
Two Lions In The Running For The #MLSSoshies
What is a "Soshy?" Well, it's the award given out by mlssoccer.com for the MLS players with the best social media accounts. In the running for Orlando City are Kaká and Brek Shea. With his amazing pregnancy announcement, Brek Shea definitely deserves the award so make sure to vote for him!
USWNT Dumps Trinidad & Tobago, 6-0
The Orlando Pride's Alex Morgan scored her seventh goal of 2015 in the USWNT's 6-0 win over Trinidad & Tobago at the Alamodome in San Antonio last night. Here's a look at her goal:
Pride goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris did not play. Check out the story linked above for all the details from our Daniel Byrd.
USMNT To Play Iceland In January Friendly
According to ESPNFC.com, the USMNT is rumored to be playing Iceland in it's first match of 2016. This will be the first of two matches with a squad mostly compromised of MLS players, the second is rumored to be against Canada. It is very likely that we will see Brek Shea suiting up for the Red, White, and Blue and we will also most likely see Cyle Larin suiting up for Canada.
Giovinco Wants To Finish Career In MLS
Landon Donovan MVP recipient Sebastian Giovinco has now said that he wants to finish his career in MLS. After a successful first season for the "Atomic Ant," it is no surprise that he wants to finish his career in a league that makes him look like the Italian Messi. His career will only be overshadowed by the unbeatable trio of Carlos Rivas, Cyle Larin, and Kevin Molino. No, that is not sarcasm.
That's all for today folks, enjoy your Friday.
