Rogers aware he has plenty of work ahead to reach top form with LA Galaxy

Robbie Rogers knows very well that he has some work to do before he hits top form with the LA Galaxy.

The 26-year old winger made his first MLS start since 2011 when he played just under 70 minutes of the Galaxy's 0-0 draw with Portland Timbers on Wednesday night and although he was thrilled to be in the starting XI, he says he has some match fitness to gain.

"It felt good to have a proper start, to get back out there and to be out there from the beginning," said Rogers.

"I still think I have a long ways to go, but there were flashes where I was getting my legs back, and I was moving quite well at times. That's good to see after putting in a lot of hard work. But things are slowly coming back.

"I think I probably need two more games to really get flying around and not be worrying about my fitness. Actually, I felt pretty good in the second half. I actually felt I could have played a little longer, which surprised me."
