Real Name: Alan Gordon
HT: 6' 3" WT: 190
Age: 34 (10/16/1981)
Birthplace: Long Beach, CA
Hometown: Gilbert, AZ

HOW ACQUIRED: Joined LA Galaxy Aug. 11, 2014 from San Jose Earthquakes in exchange for allocation money.

Gordon is a classic target forward – he is strong in the air, can hold the ball up and play with his back to goal, and has a remarkably good touch for a big man. Now mostly a go-to bench player, he is also known for his propensity for clutch late goals, which he became known for in the San Jose Earthquakes' 2012 Supporters' Shield run and carried back with him to the Galaxy.

Gordon started his MLS career with the Galaxy, who drafted him 53rd overall in the 2004 MLS SuperDraft, first appearing for them on loan from the Portland Timbers in 2004. In addition to the Galaxy and the Earthquakes, Gordon has spent time with Chivas USA and Toronto FC. He was also a memorable character in Grant Wahl's The Beckham Experiment, and is a two time MLS Cup Champion.


INTERNATIONAL: Gordon earned his first cap for the US national team on October 12, 2012, coming on as a substitute in a 2014 World Cup qualifier at Antigua & Barbuba and assisting on the game-winning goal. He earned his only other cap to date in the 2015 Gold Cup, in the USA's semifinal loss to Jamaica.

OUTSIDE MLS: Gordon started his pro career in the lower divisions with the Portland Timbers, and also spent time on loan with the then-A-League side in 2006.

COLLEGE: Gordon played his first two years at the junior college level wit Yavapai College before transferring to Oregon State, where he scored 26 goals and was twice named All-Pac 10 in his final two years.
