If you’re going to be a fan of the Cosmos then one of the most important things out there is to get to know your Cosmos! On occasion, I will be profiling a different Cosmos player just so we get to know them a little better. Hey I know the team is new and you may not know all of the faces – but next time you see their number running around, perhaps these articles will have come in handy to you!
Today we profile Cosmos attacker, #13 Sebastian Guenzatti. Seba as his teammates call him, was actually born in New York so playing for the Cosmos is extra special to him. Seba was raised in College Point Queens and attendred Francis Lewis High School. While extremely successful at Francis Lewis HS with soccer, Seba and his teammates would always make the playoffs but never actually secure the City Championship. In a way coming back to Cosmos, he hopes that this time New York City has a bigger championship for him – The coveted NASL Championship!
I picked Guenzatti today because Cosmos fans will remember a few weeks back when the Cosmos played the Minneosta United team at home in Hofstra that Seba scored the only goal of the match to give the Cosmos a 1-0 victory. The goal was a brilliant header by Guenzatti on a nice cross from Hunter Freeman. The goal came in the 77th minute after a defensive battle that looked sure to head to a tie. Thanks to Guenzatti’s header however, the Cosmos would move into first place and have not left the top of the table since!
You can see Sebastian’s goal from that night below!
