When Stefan Frei goes down with an injury in stoppage time, who else would take his place but Alex Roldan? OK, so maybe your mind might first go to an actual goalkeeper like Stefan Cleveland or Spencer Richey, or maybe someone tall like Will Bruin. But, against San Jose, and on the recommendation of Cristian Roldan, it was Alex Roldan’s time to shine as our emergency ‘keeper.

Emergency Keeper: Alex Roldan
Breaking T

We’ve partnered with Breaking T — and the MLS Players Association — to bring you this shirt (buy it here) to celebrate Alex Roldan’s heroics in goal.

Now, this wasn't just a ceremonial appearance in net from the right back. Alex registered three saves, the first coming from a dangerous set piece, which he handled magnificently (before being kneed in the head) to keep the clean sheet and three points.

If you don’t have an older brother to tell your coach to make you buy this shirt, consider this your sign. This design also comes in a hoodie and youth sizes! Check out our other Breaking T collabs while you're at it.
