HOW ACQUIRED: Signed via transfer from Polish Ekstraklasa side Legia Warsaw on January 30, 2020.

A lethal finisher and former Poland U-21 international, Niezgoda had seven goals and one assist in 17 games, and was heating up late in the 2020 season with a pair of braces before suffering a season-ending ACL injury which is expected to sideline him for the early portion of the 2021 season.

OUTSIDE MLS: The 25-year-old spent the last three seasons with Legia Warsaw, where he tallied 29 goals and six assists in 62 appearances (40 starts) across all competitions. During the 2017-18 season, Niezgoda registered 13 goals and two assists in 27 appearances (22 starts), helping Legia Warsaw claim the Polish Championship. He also scored in the 2019 Polish Cup final to help Legia to the trophy.

INTERNATIONAL: Niezgoda made five appearances and tallied one goal for the Polish U-21 national team, including making three appearances for Poland in the 2017 UEFA European U-21 Championship.
