Alex Ring Named to MLS Team of the Matchday


Austin FC midfielder Alex Ring was named to the Major League Soccer (MLS) Team of the Matchday bench for his performance in Austin’s 2-2 away draw against New England Revolution on Saturday night at Gillette Stadium. Ring earns his second Team of the Matchday selection of the 2023 season.

With Austin trailing 2-1 in the final moments of Saturday’s match, Ring picked up the ball on the edge of the penalty area. After taking a touch to control, the Finnish midfielder hit a powerful half-volley which arrowed into the bottom corner to tie the score. The goal, officially recorded with 93:47 on the clock, was the latest away goal in Austin FC history. The Verde & Black are just the fourth team in MLS to get a point against the Revolution at Gillette Stadium this season.

In addition to his goal, Ring was credited with an assist on Emiliano Rigoni's 27th-minute strike. He also won five duels and both of his attempted tackles.
