One For the Road

So I didn't mention this guy the other day when talking about top offseason acquisitions partly because he's headed to an expansion team in Orlando City, but let's talk a little bit about Bryan Róchez. One of the youngest designated players in MLS history, the now 20 year-old Honduran helped lead Honduras's U-20s to a gold medal at the 2013 Central American Games, already has 6 CAPs for the Honduran Senior National Team, was the Liga Nacional de Honduras's second leading scorer during the 2013-14 season while scoring 20 goals for Real C.D. España, and he'll be a member of Honduras's U-20 Squad in the upcoming CONCACAF U-20 Championship. 

In parts of 3 seasons in Honduras, Róchez amassed 30 goals for Real España. He also scored in the Group Stage of this year's CONCACAF Champion's League in Real España's 1-1 home draw with Municipal (Guatemala).

Now with a chance to play alongside a big time playmaker in Kaká, Róchez, a natural scorer, should have no shortage of opportunities. Keep an eye on him during the upcoming CONCACAF tournament. Honduras is grouped with Cuba, Canada, Haiti, Mexico and El Salvador.
