A lot of talk lately about Mexican Leaguer Herculez Gomez and whether he merits a call-up to the USMNT–the next cap would be his third–with the World Cup just double digit days away. Gomez has netted in six of his last seven games for Puebla.
A mercurial figure, Gomez is a former MLS striker who scored just once for the Kansas City Wizards over 34 appearances through 2008-09 games.
TSG will go against our most popular axiom in this post (“You can’t look at observations in isolation, you need to look at the whole body of work.”) and ask you be the judge from these brief clips. Here are a sampling of Gomez’s goals over the past month. Forget not knowing the Bob Bradley playbook, to this writer, it’s just not enough for Gomez this cycle….a good defender likely shuts half of these down.
