After nine games without scoring, Moussa Djitté finds the net with Austin FC after an incredible recital delivered against Real Salt Lake.
Moussa Djitté’s second season in Major League Soccer has not been easy but he is about to end it in a resounding way. Arrived in the summer of 2021 from Grenoble, the 22-year-old Senegalese striker has only played ends of matches this season (14 matcheshs for tenure). Blame it on his erratic performance since he landed in the state of Texas.
But three days before the end of the MLS version 2022 season, the former player of Niarry Tally has undoubtedly created a better turning point. Mute since May 23, Djitté has put an end to this long scarcity. of a rude awakening. On the night of Wednesday to Thursday, he distinguished himself against Real Salt Lake by scoring a hat-trick in the second half in front of the many supporters who came to see their team at Q2 Stadium.
Returning in the 58th minute, Djitté did not take long to change the course of the match by opening the scoring in the hour of play. On a love of center outside the foot of Diego Fagúndez, he offered himself a superb recovery with the right foot. On receiving a badly cleared ball by an opponent, he aggravates the mark by shooting the goalkeeper of Real Salt Lake in the 76th minute. Always with the right foot.
Then a few moments later, in the 80th, Djitté did it again by perfectly concluding a counter-attack from Austin. He and his teammates end up winning 3-0 to move up to fourth place in the standings. A more than perfect evening for the 22-year-old Senegalese striker who now has four Major League Soccer goals this season.
