Gomez Goals: A Mixtape of Herculean Proportions



With 8 goals in 13 games it was only a matter of time until Herculez Gomez got a call up from Bob Bradley the mixtape treatment. It's not the greatest clip ever but it's all of his greatest hits in a Puebla kit. Vamos Herculez!

thanks for the vid. Im not impressed though. He had 1 maybe 2 good finishes, but he won't be getting free headers like that in international play, or that open. He showed no ability to make space between a defender and score a goal. Sorry but i was expecting more, im glad Gomez has started doing better but that wasn't as impressive as i hoped it would be. But then again maybe im wrong and know nothing, and i hope that is the case. Im rooting for any American who can shine so hopefully he keeps up the good work.

akarl, you almost cost me a laptop. Thankfully I was able to swallow my coffee instead of letting it return to the world through my nose.

He's scoring well, I really don't think inviting him to the initial camp has any downside. You can never have too many options.

haha, am i right or what?

i dont think theres anything wrong with inviting him into camp to see how/if he meshes with the squad.

but anon has a good point above. alot of these goals are free headers and chances that he won't see any of against WC teams.

They may not be the most impressive goals, but they're goals and that's more than most US forwards can say. Pretty much just him and Edson Buddle who are scoring.

Why does he start on the bench half of the time?

Well at least he's in game form and scoring goals. Which is more than we can say about Davies, Ching, Altidore, Johnson and whatever other options we have up top. The Mexican NT has some good forwards but I've never heard anybody arguing about how easy the Mexican league is to score in when their forwards are in good form and scoring against European competition. Nothing wrong with inviting Herculez to camp and see how he meshes.

Damn. A lot of downer comments on here. Ching is old, slow and hurt. I really am willing to bet that nothing that spectacular will come of Ching if he's in the squad, just not a dynamic played. Altidore will do well in my opinion. Sure, he hasn't scored much with Hull, but when I've been able to watch him play, he looks as if his skills and stamina are improving. I think he's the kind of player who might break out in the WC. I really hope Davies will be back in form, but if not, Gomez looks like a fitting replacement. Please no Connor Casey, much prefer Ching.
