Daryl Dike discusses his return to Orlando City


Forward Daryl Dike recently returned to the pitch for Major League Soccer side Orlando City after sustaining a heavy injury while on international duty with the United States men’s national team during the Gold Cup.

After a loan spell with Barnsley in 2020, he returned to kick off the 2021 season with the Lions and recorded two goals and one assist before an injury halted his ambitions. While on international duty with the USMNT at the Gold Cup, Dike damaged his shoulder and missed nearly two months of action.

He finally returned to the pitch in purple on August 27 against Inter Miami as a sub with one goal in mind: help the team. 

“For me, it’s just how can I do what I normally do — that’s bringing the team up, scoring goals, doing whatever I can do to help the team, whether it be the assists, the goals, the runs, everything,” Dike said (via the Orlando Sentinel) following training on Wednesday. 

“For me, that’s how I always play, it’s not always about the goals. I think at the end of the day, if I’m up top the goals will come. So for me, it’s just how can I help the team to win and being a problem for the other team as well.”
