It didn't take long for A.J. Soares to make an impact in Denmark, as the former New England Revolution defender scored in his debut.
On Monday, Soares started at center back in AGF Aarhus' game against Esbjerg. It was a poor start for AGF, who conceded two goals before making their comeback. The final strike of the night belonged to Soares, whose left-footed beauty leveled the score at 2-2, which is how the game would end.
Soares was modest about the goal after the game saying, "It was good. It was a good moment but I'm not a goalscorer, so maybe I don't have the same sort of ambition to do that as maybe the strikers. For me, I just want to go out there and win the game and help the team start a little bit better and defend a little bit better in the beginning. Of course I'm happy to score, but I'm just thinking about the game and the draw and how we should have taken three points."
Soares scored six goals during his four-year stay with the Revolution. He left the team at the end of the 2014 season, spending time with Viking FK in Norway before joining AGF.
