    UNIONDALE, New York -- El Salvador international Andres Flores has joined the New York Cosmos on loan from Turin-FESA, the North American Soccer League club announced Friday.

    The attacking midfielder is expected to a add a creative spark to a side that lost 3-1 to the visiting San Antonio Scorpions in its fall season opener on July 12.

    “I’m really excited to be joining the Cosmos,” said Flores, who has 31 caps and served as El Salvador’s captain in a 2-0 loss to Spain last month.  “It’s a championship-winning squad with a lot of quality players, but I’m here to try and help the team and ready for a new challenge.”

    He tallied three times in five matches for El Salvador’s under-23 side at the 2012 CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying tournament, including one in a 3-3 group stage draw against the United States.  That result eliminated the host Americans from the competition.

    “We’re delighted to have added Andrés Flores to our squad.” Cosmos head coach Giovanni Savarese said.  “He’s a young player with lots of international experience and potential.  His pace and skill will add another dimension to our attack and gives us more options on the forward line.”

    The 23-year-old has also played with Isidro Metapan and Denmark’s Viborg.
