Openly gay Robbie Rogers on pro soccer return: ‘It’s good to be back’

Robbie Rogers 

Robbie Keane may have provided the Los Angeles Galaxy with the goals it needed to come away the victor from Sunday's game against the Seattle Sounders, but it was Robbie Rogers who stole the show.

Rogers stepped onto the pitch in the 77th minute to a roaring crowd Sunday night. For the first time in American men's professional sports, an openly gay man was a part of the competition.

In April, Rogers came out as a gay man and announced his retirement from professional soccer. The former U.S. Men's National Team player was then invited to a training session with the Los Angeles Galaxy and earlier this month, a trade was finalized between his old club, Columbus Crew, and the Galaxy.
