[NASL 2014 COUNTDOWN] The San Antonio Scorpions signed Eric Hassli, who was recently released by FC Dallas after three seasons in MLS. The French-born forward has 78 career goals in 280 games for 10 clubs in five different countries.

His club career began with Metz (France) in 2000 and he has also appeared for: Southampton in England, Valenciennes in France, Neuchatel Xamax, Servette, St. Gallen and FC Zurich in Switzerland and the Vancouver Whitecaps, Toronto FC and FC Dallas in MLS.

The 6-foot-4 Hassli was nominated for MLS Goal of the Year in 2011 (goal against Seattle) and FIFA Puskas Award in 2012 (goal in Amway Canadian Championship).

"Hassli is a landmark signing for our club," said San Antonio coach Alen Marcina in a statement. "Hassli has been a Designated Player in MLS, has playing experience in French and Swiss top leagues in addition to Champions League. This is one more step to position ourselves to achieve our objective of competing for a NASL championship."

    Not sure if this is a landmark signing for the Scorpions or a sign of how far and fast Hassli's once-promising career has fallen. If nothing else, it will give FC Edmonton fans someone to heckle when San Antonio comes to town.
