EAMON ZAYED ONLY arrived in Indianapolis at the turn of the year but he’s had quite the impact in his brief time in the United States .

Plying his trade with Indy Eleven of the NASL, essentially the second-tier in North America, he played a crucial role in the side claiming the Spring Season Championship in June.

In the deciding fixture, Indy needed to win by three clear goals to finish top and Zayed stepped up to conjure a superb hat-trick.

The NASL campaign is split in two, with the longer Fall Season running from July to November.

But Indy’s early success has already ensured them a place in the play-offs later this year and gives them a big chance of reaching this year’s Soccer Bowl – essentially the Championship final.

Thankfully for Indy – who care captained by Corkman Colin Falvey, Zayed’s form has continued into the Fall season.

Last week, Zayed netted another hat-trick in a 5-2 win over Jacksonville Armada to take his goal tally to 11 for the season.

It meant that he was subsequently voted as the NASL Player of the Week for a third time and, unsurprisingly, he’s also been included in the league’s Team of the Week along with more high-profile names like Joe Cole and Georgios Samaras.
