Orlando City forward Devorn Jorsling is still looking to capitalize on his opportunities in front of the net. Playing in six games and getting fourteen shots for the season have unfortunately still left him with zero goals.
Signing for Orlando City has been a huge adjustment for Jorsling. With a new city, teammates, coaches, and fans, he says it is difficult to relax since he is not within the comfort of his home country.
“It’s because it’s something new” says Jorsling. “Back home when I played I played for the national team and with coming to America and playing a different type of football I’m just understanding more and more what the coach wants from me.”
Jorsling’s impressive game stats from both his club and international teams in Trinidad give him the credibility to be a top striker. His incredible talent but lack of goals for Orlando City this season leaves him frustrated. He, his coaches and teammates acknowledge his remarkable scoring potential and ability to be a game changer.
“I’ve had some decent performances but I’m a goal scorer,” says Jorsling. “I get paid to score goals and I have yet to score a goal. For me, that’s probably the most disappointing.”
Knowing that he must capitalize on his opportunities, Jorsling is hopeful for a good outcome from himself and his team in Wednesday’s home game against the Richmond Kickers. Kickoff begins at 7:30 pm at the Florida Citrus Bowl. After losing to Richmond in the first game of the regular season, Orlando hopes for a huge victory and cement their place at the top of the American Division.
