Former Ohio State men's soccer standout Roger Espinoza made his Barclays Premier League debut with the Wigan Athletic last week and the midfielder was impressive in his first game against Sunderland. 

"I was very pleased with his role," said Wigan manager Roberto Martinez. "Roger had a massive impact when he came off the bench, getting involved in all the good things we produced going forward." 

The former Buckeye made headlines this past summer as an Olympian on Honduras' national team. Espinoza received a standing ovation from the English crowd when leaving the field due to a red card in the 90th minute. He had been the heart and soul of a relentless Honduran side in their quarterfinal match against Brazil, as he helped set up the Hondurans' first goal and scored the second.

During his time at Ohio State he led the Buckeyes to the 2007 Big Ten Tournament Championship and the NCAA title game as a first-team All-Big Ten selection.
