Herculez Unchained

Stop me if you've heard this one before. An American player heads overseas to a league considered superior to MLS. He settles in immediately, scoring goals and turning heads in the process.

The only thing is, I'm not talking about Landon Donovan.

Herculez Gomez formerly of the Kansas City Wizards, Colorado Rapids and Los Angeles Galaxy transferred to Puebla in Mexico this offseason and the change has done him a world of good. Gomez went goalless in 26 appearances with the Wizards last year, and scored just three in 25 games the year before. So far this year Gomez has already scored five goals in just eight appearances for La Franja.

Here he is opening the scoring for Puebla just last week.
