Navia Named NASL Player of the Month
The league’s leading scorer, forward Reinaldo Navia, is off to a hot start in Atlanta.
Atlanta Silverbacks forward Reinaldo Navia has been named North American Soccer League Player of the Month, the league announced this week.
The Chilean forward leads the league in goals scored with a remarkable total of five in three games started. Navia’s most recent performance, one that featured a pair of goals in the Silverbacks’ 3-3 draw against Minnesota Stars FC last Saturday, earned him NASL Offensive Player of the Week honors on Monday. Three days later, Navia has been recognized once again, being voted as the league’s April Player of the Month.
“It has been a good week, and I feel honored that people are recognizing my accomplishments so far this season,” Navia said through a translator in a statement. “It always feels good to receive awards, but I need to focus more on continuing my goal scoring and helping the team win games.”
