Pereira's Long-Range Strike Lifts Austin FC to Away Win over Charlotte FC

June 30, 2022 - Major League Soccer (MLS) - Austin FC News Release


Charlotte, N.C. - An incredible long-range strike from Dani Pereira helped Austin FC defeat Charlotte FC 1-0 on Thursday night at Bank of America Stadium. The victory lifts Austin to second place in the MLS Supporters' Shield standings at the midway point of the Club's season.

Scoring chances were few and far between in the first half, as the Verde & Black held Charlotte to no shots on target. Jhohan Romaña had the best opportunity for either side, heading a powerful shot over the bar.

The hosts fired a warning shot off the post in the opening minutes of the second half, but it was Pereira who broke the deadlock in the 62nd-minute after coming on as a substitute. Picking up a pass from Nick Lima 25 yards from goal, Pereira unleashed a swerving strike that rocketed off the underside of the crossbar and in.

Austin took a pragmatic approach to the remainder of the game, continuing to frustrate Charlotte's attack until the final whistle to collect a second consecutive shutout win away from home.
