Robbie Rogers, an American soccer player who played several years in Europe before coming out as gay and then announcing he was returning to California to take a break from the sport, is now training with the Los Angeles Galaxy. Rogers, 25, came out in February, and then said he was leaving soccer, but on Tuesday he trained with the two-time defending Major League Soccer Cup champions. Currently, his contract is with the Chicago Fire, if he decides to play again.
