Queens, N.Y. -- The New York Cosmos 3-0 US Open Cup victory wasn't the only good news that occurred on Wednesday night.

Cosmos' star Marcos Senna produced a strong performance in the win over the Jersey Express and head coach Giovanni Savarese eluded that Senna would be with the club for the NASL's fall season. The Spanish international's contract currently runs through the end of the spring season.

"I think there might be some good news coming along," Savarese told reporters after the win. He did not add any further context to the comment, but it would appear that it is an indication something is in the works.

Wednesday was also Senna's first match back since missing last Saturday's 3-0 win over the San Antonio Scorpions due to a hamstring injury. Senna played 71 minutes against the Express before Danny Szetela came into the game in his place.

The Cosmos' head coach was pleased with the performance by one of the team's most recognizable names.

"I thought it was very good," Savarese said about Senna's performance. "I thought he found the ball easy, he makes good plays. He gave us a different dimension, so he did a lot of very good things today. it was good for him to be back again, to move, to see how he felt to the point pushing him a little bit more would a little too much.

"We got out of Marcos what we needed for today and the game also gave from Marcos what we needed to play."

New York has just two games left on the docket for the spring season. They will travel to Minnesota on Saturday and host Jacksonville Armada FC on June 13.
