Robbie Rogers is determined force his way back into USA national team plans after making his second MLS debut.

The 25-year old winger is back from his February retirement, playing his first game for LA Galaxy in last weekend’s 4-0 victory over the Seattle Sounders.

Now the openly gay former Columbus Crew and Leeds United midfielder is looking to add to the 18 international caps he has already won for his country once he becomes a Galaxy regular.

"I'd love to be back with the US team – it's probably been two years since I played for the US,” Rogers said on The Dan Patrick Show.

"But first I have to get back to playing well with my club team. I need to prove myself to the Galaxy and be successful there, and help our team win games.

"So that's what's most important right now. But I was close to the last World Cup team and I'd love to be in the same position [in 2014]. We'll see."
