Vincentian Oalex Anderson has been given another shot to play professional Football in the USA when, last Monday, he was signed by the Richmond Kickers in the United Soccer League (USL).
Anderson, 24, who hails from Barrouallie, was previously a part of the Seattle Sounders set up in Major League Soccer (MLS).
A nippy forward, he caught the eyes of the Americans when he netted a splendid goal for St Vincent and the Grenadines versus the USA, in the World Cup Qualifiers in St Louis.
He joined the Sounders’ first team in 2016, after a stint with the second team in the USL.
Anderson’s MLS sojourn has seen him appearing fifteen times in the MLS and sixteen times in the USL.
A knee injury sustained in 2017 while with the Seattle Sounders, put him out of contention for the better part of two years.
He made a return last year, when he represented St Vincent and the Grenadines in the CONCACAF Nations League.
He has represented St Vincent and the Grenadines at the Under-17, Under-20, Under-23 and Senior levels.
At the Senior level, he has made 24 appearances and scored 13 goals, the last of which came against Nicaragua in a 1-1 drawn match Sin Nicaragua, in the CONCACAF Nations League.
