Omar Gonzalez with USMNT

LA Galaxy, USMNT's Omar Gonzalez poses fully nude for 2014 ESPN The Magazine Body Issue | SIDELINE

Omar Gonzalez is at it again, stripping down in public and allowing the photographic evidence to find its way onto the Internet — and this time, magazine pages. 

The LA Galaxy and US national team defender will be one of many athletes featured in this year's ESPN The Magazine Body Issue. Also appearing in her own spread will be US women's national team star Megan Rapinoe.

For a sneak peek at Gonzalez posing in the full-nude, and to hear his thoughts not only on doing so, but also the importance of — what else — his body as a pro soccer player, check out this interview page on ESPN's website.

If you think for even one second that the 6-foot-5 defender might have been nervous in posing for the photoshoot, well, you're probably wrong. He's not had a problem being — we'll put it nicely — open, with sharing his body in recent years.

First, there was the locker room episode from MLS Cup 2012 in which he flashed his teammates a full-frontal look from underneath his bathrobe. And then there was last Thanksgiving's "Sexy Sax Man" Instagram video in which he plays a saxophone high atop a mountain, wearing nothing but a Speedo.

You just keep doing you, Omar. The 2014 Body Issue hit newsstands this Friday, July 11.
