Andrija Novakovich scores first goal for Fortuna Sittard


Andrija Novakovich’s last loan spell saw the U.S. Men’s National Team forward score 19 goals with Dutch second-tier side Telstar. On Saturday, the 21-year-old netted his first goal in his latest loan to the Eredivisie.

Novakovich bagged his first goal for Fortuna Sittard on Saturday, in a 2-1 home loss to PSV Eindhoven.

Mexican international Hirving Lozano’s close-range finish in the 33rd-minute had the visitors up 1-0 at the Fortuna Sittard Stadion.

Novakovich finished nicely in the 61st minute to draw Sittard level against the Dutch giants. It was Novakovich’s first competitive goal since April 9th with Telstar.

However, PSV used a 90th-minute finish from Dante Rigo to claim all three points against the newly-promoted club. Novakovich played the full 90 minutes for his  new club, but was unable to help them to their first three points of the new season.

Fortuna Sittard is next in action on Aug. 24th at ADO Den Haag.


  1. Would have been nice if someone could have identified “Sittard” and explained that it is actually a Dutch city and an Eredivisie team. Unlikely that US fans will have ever even heard of it, not that that diminishes young Mr. Novakovich’s accomplishment.
