There have been few stories regarding American soccer players quite as compelling as that of Herculez Gomez and the amazing two years he has spent in Mexico reviving a career that was in jeopardy of ending not too long ago.
Gomez considered life after soccer when he looked to be out of options in the winter of 2009, after his contract with the Kansas City Wizards had expired and he was not re-signed. Two years later, Gomez is a regular for the top team in Mexico and enjoying the kind of career renaissance even he couldn't have envisioned two years ago.
In my new Fox Soccer feature on Gomez, the 2010 U.S. World Cup striker opens up about when his career hit rock bottom, and how much things have changed for him since then.
Give the story a read and let me know what you think. Hoping Gomez gets a national team call up this summer? Have his exploits led you to watch more Mexican soccer? Would you like to see him return to MLS?
