VIDEO: Former Maryland Star Robbie Rogers Scores In U.S. Soccer's Game Vs. Mexico


↵

Maryland has one of the top soccer programs in the country, so it's not a huge shock that they have produced another U.S. Men's National Team performer. Still, it is pretty unlikely that the very first goal of the Juergen Klinsmann era would be scored by a former Maryland standout. Ultimately, though, that's what happened when Robbie Rogers scored this one to level the team's friendly vs. Mexico at one.

Rogers didn't really do the work on the play -- that was done by Juan Agudelo and Brek Shea -- but someone had to finish it off, and Rogers was the guy. Rogers, a 24-year old who currently plays for the Columbus Crew of MLS, played just one season at Maryland, but it was a memorable one. The winger helped lead Maryland to the 2005 NCAA title before signing a contract to play for Heerenveen, a Dutch team, back in 2006.
