Head Coach Alen Marcina is now joined by fellow Canadian, Nana Attakora. The Scorpions signed the 25 yr old defender yesterday to join their already stout back-line that includes Julius James, Stephen DeRoux, & newcomer Eduar Zea.
Attakora will bring MLS & international experience to San Antonio. He has played for Toronto F.C., San Jose, and played last season with D.C. United. Although he didn't see any MLS playing-time in 2014, he was used by United in CONCACAF Champions League play. He has played with the Canadian Men's Youth & National Teams, including World Cup Qualifying matches & most recently started in Canada's first two matches of 2015 against Iceland.
I'm definitely excited to see Nana play with the Scorpions. He should get plenty of playing-time and will bring good experience with him to the team.
The Scorpions kick-off their pre-season with their first match THIS Saturday (February 28) against F.C. Dallas in the 2nd annual deeproot Funds Cup. Kick-off is at 7pm CST at Toyota Field.
