The Portuguese and former Manchester United scored his first goal in the MLS and the winning goal with his new team in the match against Colorado Rapids.
Nani signed with Orlando City from Sporting CP just in time for the start of the MLS season. The 32-year-old Portuguese needed six games to score his first goal with his new team to tie the match against the Colorado Rapids.
It took Nani 385 minutes played in the American league to debut as a scorer with Orlando, although the captain already was involved in a previous goal from his team by giving an assist in the draw against Chicago Fire.

The Portuguese have now two goals and three assists in the MLS so far.
