Roger Torres (born July 13, 1991) is a Colombian footballer, who currently plays for Philadelphia Union in Major League Soccer.

Career[edit]

Torres played for Envigado FC's youth team before moving to Alianza Petrolera of the Colombian second division. He debuted in February 2008, scoring one goal during that season. On July 16, 2009, he signed with América de Cali of the first division. He started all 15 games that he took part in, debuting against Club Santa Fe.

Torres then joined Major League Soccer expansion team Philadelphia Union for their preseason leading up to their inaugural season in MLS, and was acquired on loan from América after impressing during his time there.[1]

On April 10, 2010, Torres recorded the first ever assist for the expansion side Philadelphia Union. He did so with a cross put away by Sébastien Le Toux in the fourth minute of play. He scored his first goal for Union almost exactly a year later, on April 9, 2011, just a minute after coming on as a substitute in a game against the New York Red Bulls. Torres won the AT&T Goal of the Week in week 20 of the 2011 season with his stoppage time goal against the Colorado Rapids in 2011.[2]

On January 31, 2012, Torres completed a permanent transfer from América de Cali to Philadelphia Union.[3]
