San Antonio makes a big move, signing Eric Hassli

Gail Oskin

San Antonio is quickly making a case for themselves as a real contender for the title

Popular opinion among NASL fans is that the New York Cosmos are probably a runaway favorite to win their seventh North American Soccer League title in 2014. The San Antonio Scorpions are doing their best, however, to make sure that The Championship is anything but a foregone conclusion.

Today, the Scorpions announced a major signing, bringing center forward Eric Hassli on board for the 2014 season. Hassli is a 6'4" center forward that immediately becomes one of the more accomplished players in the NASL, and will go a long way toward replacing Hans Denissen in the San Antonio attack.

Hassli will provide a similar target to Pablo Campos, who was fantastic in that role for the Scorpions before joining Minnesota United. San Antonio were probably the best team in the league in 2012 with that type of player leading the line, and will likely return to the same sort of system that made them so successful during that campaign.
