USMNT center back, Chelsea loanee Miazga scores for Vitesse (video)


USMNT center back and Chelsea loanee Matt Miazga scored his first goal for loan club Vitesse on Wednesday, helping the Eredivisie side overpower amateur side Jodan Boys in the KNVB Cup Round of 16 on Wednesday.

Miazga, 21, joined Chelsea from New York Red Bulls in January, making two appearances for the Blues before going on loan to Vitesse this Fall.

It took him a bit to break into the squad, where he started four matches in-a-row before heading back to the bench in early November.

Saturday was his 10th match of the season, and this left-footed shot was his first goal. It’s stopped before the goal line in most leagues, but the kid’s a center back so high-fives from us. Take ’em when you find ’em, Matt.
