New England's Lee Nguyen ties all-time MLS single-game assist record

Kei Kamara's hat trick stole the headlines, but he wasn’t the New England Revolution attacker to make history Saturday night.

Midfielder Lee Nguyen tied the all-time MLS single-game record with four assists in New England’s 4-0 win against Orlando at Gillette Stadium. He’s the fifth player in league history to record four assists in one match, joining Landon Donovan, Carlos Valderrama, Dwayne De Rosario and Chris Henderson in the elite club.

Nguyen is now tied for the MLS lead with Toronto FC’s Victor Vazquez with 14 assists this season. The 30-year-old now has 48 goals and 48 assists in 183 regular season matches since he joined the Revolution in 2012.
