John Rieger-US PRESSWIRE
The Honduran who stunned the world of football, at the Olympics, with an inspirational performance against Brazil, where he controlled the midfield has signed for Wigan!
The man who we told you would sign all the way back in October. Finally has completed his move this week, all pending a work permit by the FA (as far as anyone is concerned their will be no problems). Roger is a player who I think we are all really excited to see come to Wigan, while many fans get to look on enviously at our new Honduran addition.
He has signed on a two and a half year deal, which will start on the first of January (his MLS contact expiring on the 31st December). He will arrive in the country in a week or two, and will have two weeks to settle into the country and get use to the area before he has to get down to work.

The Honduran star, was sensational at this years Olympics and was part of the side that tore apart a Brazil side which included the likes of Oscar and Neymar. Roger Espinoza was on form and in total control of the midfield, the man is consider and box to box player, and he was until he got himself sent off.
