USL: Sockers’ Ze Roberto among top 5 players of the decade

San Diego Sockers midfielder Ze Roberto was recently named number 22 in the top 25 list of United Soccer League’s First Division players for the decade, reported last week.

“Ze Roberto was a bit of a Bob Lilley disciple. The quick and crafty midfielder, who worked well with [Steve] Klein, began his USL-1 career with the Hershey Wildcats in 2000 and helped guide the team to the USL-1 Final the following year. He moved on to join the Montreal Impact with Lilley in 2002 and posted career highs in points in 2002 and again in 2003 before helping lead the team to the league championship in 2004. The Impact went on to capture regular season titles the next two years before he moved onto Vancouver to rejoin Lilley. The stay was short-lived though as Lilley was out after the season. The 2003 All-League selection found a new home back east with the Rochester Rhinos, where he has spent the past two years,” according to the Web site.
