Gale Agbossoumonde (born November 17, 1991 in Togo) is a Togolese-born American soccer player who currently plays for S.C. Braga of the Portuguese Liga.


Early Life

Agbossoumonde was born in Togo, but his family fled to Benin when Gale was an infant. At the age of eight, his family moved to Syracuse, New York with the help of a church charity.




After a semester with the U-17 National Team, Agbossoumonde was invited to join the prestigious IMG Soccer Academy in Bradenton, Florida. He emerged as a force at centerback, earning high praise for his soccer IQ and his ability to effectively use his already large frame.

Agbossoumonde signed a three and a half year contract with Traffic Sports and Miami FC on August 6, 2009.[1] His professional debut shortly followed and he made six appearances during the 2009 USL season. On January 7, 2010, he moved to Sporting Braga of the Portuguese Liga.[2] on a six-month loan that includes an option to buy.


He has been an active member of the United States U-20 team and participated in the 2009 CONCACAF U-20 Championship in Trinidad & Tobago, helping the US to qualify for the 2009 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Egypt.
