Winger Leo Fernandes, the New York Cosmos’ leading goal scorer through three games, is up for the NASL Play of the Week.

Fernandes has been a great addition to the team’s offense, not only helping to set-up some great plays, but also providing a great touch around the cage as well. The Long Island native netted the second goal  in the team’s home opener against Tampa Bay on April 18.

Other Week 3 nominees:

  • Atlanta Silverbacks forward Shaka Bangura’s sidewinding strike against Carolina
  • Indy Eleven midfielder Sergio Peña’s miracle goal from the edge of center circle against San Antonio
  • FC Edmonton midfielder Ritchie Jones’ calm finish against Fort Lauderdale (with an outstanding individual effort from fellow mid Sainey Nyassi)
  • Fort Lauderdale Strikers goalkeeper David Meves’ back-to-back stops against the Eddies
