Miguel "Mike" Noha (Ukrainian: ? (, ) ?) was a U.S. soccer forward. He spent at least five seasons in the American Soccer League and earned one cap with the U.S. national team.

Professional career

Born in the barrio of Villa Urquiza, Noha played football with local side Defensores de Villa Maipú in the Argentine league. In 1959, he moved to the United States, where he played for the Philadelphia Ukrainian Nationals until a knee injury ended his career in 1974.[1] He was the ASL leading scorer during the 1959-1960 season with twenty-two goals. That season, Noha also gained a "double" when the Ukes won the ASL and National Challenge Cup titles. They won the National Cup in a 5-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kickers with Noha scoring all five Philly goals.[2] Philadelphia repeated as league and National Cup champions in 1960-1961. While Noha did not lead the league in scoring, he was the league MVP. He was still listed with Philadelphia when he appeared with the national team in 1964.

National team

Noha earned one cap with the U.S. national team in a 10-0 loss to England on May 27, 1964.
