The Costa Rican international was one of the top left backs in MLS in 2014 and 2015, but failed to lockdown the starting left back role in Columbus over the next two seasons. After a year away in Seattle, he looks to regain his starting role in Columbus following an injury to Milton Valenzuela.

Notably, Francis was a member of the Costa Rican squad that reached the quarterfinals of the FIFA 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
