The New York Cosmos have added depth and experience to its roster with the signing of Isaac Acuña. 

A native of California, the 29-year old midfielder and forward has spent his playing career outside the United States.

Acuña came through the ranks of Club América before suiting up for their first team in 2010. He has also featured for Mexican clubs Querétaro, Mérida, and Celaya, among others. 

He has also played professionally in Peru as well as Guatemala, including winning the Liga Nacional Apertura with Comunicaciones in 2018. Acuña recently featured for Club Deportivo Guastatoya, scoring eight league goals this season.

“He’s a true professional,” said Carlos Mendes, Cosmos coach. “He’s got the mentality we’re looking for. He’s a proven goalscorer and he’s a big, strong forward with good feet, so he’ll give us a presence in the box. He’ll help us in a lot of different ways and can hurt the other team.”
