On Monday, USL Championship announced that Republic FC forward Russell Cicerone has been nominated for Fan’s Choice Goal of the Week for Week 21. Voting is open now through 9:00 a.m. on Thursday, August 3 at USLChampionship.com, as well as on Twitter, Instagram Stories, and the USL App.
Cicerone’s score put Republic FC ahead in spectacular fashion in the 31st minute of last Saturday’s match at Las Vegas Lights FC. As Keko advanced up the right flank, Cicerone moved into open space in the middle of the park before a head the ball into the back of the net with an all-out diving effort. The score was his 12th of the season – good for second among all players league wide.
The nomination is his third for the league’s weekly top strike this season. Cicerone previously was nominated for Goal of the Week in Week 10, when he scored a Hat Trick against Indy Eleven on May 13, and again in Week 12 when he scored his 50th career regular season goal against Hartford Athletic on May 26. His nomination is the seventh by a Republic FC player this season.
Republic FC travels to Monterey Bay F.C. on Saturday, August 5 – the second of four consecutive road matches. Kickoff is set for 7:00 p.m. in Seaside and fans can watch the game in English and Spanish on FOX40.com, the FOX40 News Mobile App, Antenna TV 40.2, and ESPN+. Republic FC will next play in front of its home fans on August 26, when the club hosts its 10th Season Celebration Match at Hughes Stadium.
