Career[edit]

After being scouted in Senegal during his time with Orlando City Academy Affiliate, Sport Galaxy, Mbengue played with Orlando City in the 2012 Walt Disney World Pro Soccer Classic at the age of 19 and later joined USL PDL club Orlando City U-23, where he made 10 appearances in 2012.[1]

On June 21, 2012, Mbengue was promoted to Orlando City's senior roster, making him the first player in club history to be promoted from the U23s to the pro side.[2] Mbengue made his professional debut the following day in a 3-0 win over the Harrisburg City Islanders.[3]

In the 2013 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, Mbengue made a major impact on Orlando City's run to the quarterfinals. He scored in a second-round win over the Ocala Stampede[4] and set up Long Tan for the only goal of the game in a 1-0 upset of Major League Soccer club and defending tournament champion Sporting Kansas City on June 12.[5]
