Vancouver Whitecaps FC loanee Omar Salgado has been named to the USL Pro Team of the Week after scoring in each of the Charleston Battery’s victories this week.
Salgado opened the scoring in Charleston’s 4-0 win against Harrisburg on Friday night as he deftly chipped a finish home, and then powered home the Battery’s second goal against Dayton to wrap up all three points late.
Omar Salgado joined the Battery after a fractured foot limited Salgado to just seven appearances over the past two seasons.
The 6-foot-4, 210-pound striker is one of six on loan at Charleston, along with midfielders Aminu Abdallah and Andre Lewis and striker Mamadou Diouf from the MLS roster, in addition to U-18 defender Jackson Farmer and U-23 striker Marlon Ramirez. Whitecaps FC MLS SuperDraft picks Adam Mena and Michael Kafari are also members of the Battery.
