NASL: 2014 Preseason Schedule

"We are incredibly excited as a club," said United head coach Manny Lagos. "He has had a very good career in Brazil and Italy and he is a very well respected player. We are excited for him join the roster and help our club win games."

Vicentini started his career at Palmeiras and also played in Italy for Novora and Lecce. He joins fellow Brazilians Tiago Calvano, Pablo Campos and Cristiano Dias.

"We want to always be open to looking for good quality players," said Lagos. "In the past, we have been limited in the resources and perspective to look outside of the United States for talent. Part of the new vision of the club and ownership is to build a great team. We want to try to open ourselves globally, and we are trying build a club where players want to come here."

Other offseason signings included Calvano, Serbian-born midfielder Mozzi Gyorio and Colombian-American forward Christian Ramirez.
