Nashville SC’s Hany Mukhtar, Walker Zimmerman named to MLS Team of Matchday 6

Nashville SC duo Hany Mukhtar and Walker Zimmerman were named to the MLS Team of Matchday 6 for their performances in a 2-0 win over Orlando City on Saturday.

Hany Mukhtar picked out Fafà Picault for Nashville’s opener, and added an insurance goal in the second half. It was the first goal of 2023 for the reigning Golden Boot winner, who came inches away from adding a second, but hit his volley just over the bar.
