The one highlight from the game that we have showcases the 17-year-old’s fancy footwork as he’s able to nutmeg a defender. Bajraktarević did something similar when the Revs played CF Montréal this year.
Bajraktarević just completed his first season with the Revolution, contributing 120 minutes in three appearances with the first team. He also logged 28 appearances with Revolution II.
Bajraktarević will be training in the Netherlands through the end of the week.
