New England Revolution News: Adam Buksa one of MLS’ most dominating Forwards

Adam Buksa

Since signing with New England in 2020, forward Adam Buksa has
shown his dominance in the attacking third by tallying 25 goals in 61 regular season games, with two more goals in five postseason matches. The
Polish striker has tallied in three straight league games for New England,
matching the longest such streak of his MLS career.
Last September, in the midst of career year in which he scored a team-best
16 goals, Buksa earned his first call-up to the Poland Men’s National Team
and scored five times in as many caps, including a hat trick against San
Marino in World Cup Qualifying action.
Standing at 6-foot-4, Buksa has been dominant in the air since his arrival
in MLS. Alongside last year’s MLS Golden Boot winner Valentin Castellanos (NYCFC), Buksa is one of two MLS forwards to rank in the top three in
duels won, aerials won, headed shots, and headed goals. Buksa leads the
league in all four of those categories since arriving in MLS.
