Former Roughrider Soccer Great Rejoins USA National Team
U.S. Men’s National Team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann has added Alan Gordon to the training camp roster for Friday’s USA-Mexico match. The Los Angeles Galaxy forward and former Yavapai College Roughrider (2000, 2001) has made two appearances for the United States. He delivered the assist on the 90th minute game-winner by Eddie Johnson in the MNT’s 2-1 World Cup Qualifying victory at Antigua & Barbuda in October 2012.
The Final Round of World Cup Qualifying, also known as the “Hex”, begins with USA-Mexico, on Nov. 11 in Columbus, Ohio. With fans from all 50 states headed to MAPFRE Stadium, both FS1 and Univision plan extensive coverage around the match, with kickoff set for 5:45 p.m. (Arizona Time).
Four days later, the U.S. travels to San Jose in search of its first victory on Costa Rican soil.
