Espindola joined Real Salt Lake in 2007 and has been one of the most-productive forwards in MLS ever since. His cultured left foot allows him to not only curl shots into the back of the net but also to put pinpoint crosses into the box. Most commonly working in the left channel, the Argentinian is a terror for opposing right backs.
OUTSIDE MLS: A product of the Boca Juniors academy, Espindola bounced around South American before arriving in Salt Lake City in 2007. In 2007 he spent time with Ecuadorian power Deportivo Quito.
NOTES: Member of Boca Juniors squad that won 2005 Copa Sudamericana...Won 2009 MLS Cup with RSL...Member of 2013 Supporters' Shield-winning New York Red Bulls
