MONTREAL — In what could have been the final game of his professional soccer career, former Cuban international striker Eduardo Sebrango played the final 11 minutes of the Montreal Impact’s 1-0 loss to the New England Revolution on Saturday.
Sebrango, 39, who left Cuba to marry a Canadian woman in 1999, replaced Andrew Wenger in the 79th minute in the Major League Soccer regular-season finale for both teams. Neither team qualified for the playoffs.
“It was exciting to get involved in the game tonight,” he said. “It was a close matchup. It came down to one corner kick and they get a lucky bounce and that was it. The supporters have always supported me and they were great again today.”
Sebrango did not see much playing time this season, seeing action in seven matches over 120 minutes. He did not score or record an assist.
He played with several teams in the A-League, including the Vancouver 86ers, Rochester Rhinos, Hershey Wildcats, Montreal Impact and Vancouver Whitecaps.
