2021 has been a momentous year for Tajon Buchanan.
The Canadiens have a career-high seven goals and five assists in 21 games played this season. It continues to blow by the defenders and create many opportunities for the Revolution.
But in the last few games there has been something noticeable about the 22-year-old. As Paul Mariner said, he loves his football.
Buchanan kicked off moves we may only have seen in FIFA video games. In particular, the spinning motion he recently released was superb and jaw-dropping for fans who were able to witness it.
Revs fans should cherish the time they have left with Buchanan. He was sold to Club Brugge and will travel there at the end of the 2021 MLS season. The Canadian said with the future of his career set in stone, it could have translated into his playing on the pitch.
“I guess you could say that a bit,” Buchanan said when asked if he had gained confidence since the move. “I’m kind of playing my game right now, trying to end the season strong because this is my last season here. I just try to do what I can in every game to make a difference and help this team win games. We have a long time to come and I hope we can continue to win games and I can continue to help the team. “
Confidence had a direct impact on New England in their final game as Buchanan continued to take on defenders and dominate the game. He single-handedly faced an Orlando defender and created something from it. You’re welcome.
“I just wanted to take it with confidence, and the coaches are telling me to go out and play one on one and play my game,” he said. “When the opportunity presented itself to me, I just wanted to be aggressive. Yeah, that’s one of my strengths when a guy is one on one and I was able to put him in a dangerous place. Yeah, credit to adam [Buska]. He had a lot of guys frozen in the six-yard box and we’re glad we came in.
With the way Buchanan plays, the Revolution will be hard to stop. They will look to keep their momentum going when they face CF Montreal on the road Wednesday night.
