Herc I have always liked....a really nice guy to boot....

GUADALAJARA, Mexico – Herculez Gomez is still on cloud nine, less than 24 hours after a day he will never forget.

Not only did his Santos Laguna team get crowned Mexico Primera División champions, but Gomez received a long-awaited recall to the US national team for the first time since August 2010.

“It kind of validated the season,” Gomez told MLSsoccer.com by phone on Monday afternoon. “I knew I was having a good season, but to finally get that call-up was special.”
This marks the first time Jurgen Klinsmann has called up the popular player into a squad. The two forwards briefly crossed paths when Gomez was a youngster with the LA Galaxy and Klinsmann was working as an unofficial advisor to the club.
