“It’s an honor to be named NASL Player of the Week,” said Senna, who has played every minute this season with the Cosmos.  “It was fortunate that the free kick goal could help us earn a valuable point in the draw with Edmonton and I’m looking forward to playing in New York again this weekend, back in front of our great fans.”

After helping to assist the game-winning goal for the Cosmos last week, Senna followed that effort with another great performance against FC Edmonton.

Cosmos coach Giovanni Savarese said: “We’re fortunate to have a player of Senna’s status on our team.  He helps everyone around him and really compliments our team well.  It’s great that he is recognized with this individual honor for helping our team pick up a very important point in this competitive league.”

Senna and the Cosmos will next be in action on September 7 as they host the Atlanta Silverbacks at Hofstra University. Time of the match is set for 7:00 p.m.
