Speaking of Solli, he was masterful on the right side of the pitch. As he said in our EoS interview yesterday, the Norwegian defender had his greatest success as a right midfielder.

It showed against the Battery. Solli was solid on the ball, able to mix and read play well along with an overlapping Brandon Barklage and a contributing Mehdi Ballouchy, forming a lethal right sided attack that fueled the early pressure for New York.

The dominance on the right hand side opened up space on the left. Solli pin-pointed a wide open Connor Lade during one of these possession heavy sequences, allowing the young back to nail his first professional goal.

His vision was precise, his two way play vital, and his command on the ball palpable. Solli enjoyed a near perfect return.
