Hugo Perez made his debut with the Salsa Saturday night and the veteran midfielder from the U.S. national team quickly made his presence felt in the American Professional Soccer League.

It is too bad that the U.S. ended up with an inexperienced coach in the World Cup. Our most experienced players that got us there are not on the team. Players like Ricky Davis, Chico Borja and Hugo Perez.

The same with his adopted nation, the United States. Even as he repeatedly left, he could not stay away. When the U.S. national soccer team played the national team of El Salvador this month, it symbolized for Perez a collision of his past and present. It gave Perez, 30, an opportunity to reflect on his career as a soccer vagabond.
