Sam Rogers secures permanent move to Norwegian club

Published

Another Seattle native is enjoying some success in Norway. Following in the footsteps of Henry Wingo — who used a loan to Molde to revive his career — Sam Rogers has secured a full transfer to Hamkam, the team announced on Monday. Rogers had spent the second half of the 2021 season on loan from the USL Championship’s OKC Energy and helped the Norwegian team secure promotion to the top flight for the first time since 2008.

The 22-year-old played well enough on loan that he earned a three-year contract. He became a starter immediately, playing 17 times in league play, logging nearly 1,500 minutes and scoring one goal. That’s the most playing time he’s received since 2019 when he played nearly 1,600 minutes for the Tacoma Defiance. The Seattle native spent the first half of 2020 with OKC Energy.

Rogers played all three centerback positions in Hamkam’s 3-4-1-2, who went undefeated with just four ties and eight goals allowed in his 17 appearances. Hamkam ended up winning the league by 11 points.

Canada: 5 priorities the potential Nations League roster must address

“He likes to play between the two center backs, he likes to lead the line, he can run behind the line and stretch the line, which I like,” Herdman said back in November. “I think that is a facet that can help complement other players and the way that we play. Often when we play with that No. 9 in Johnny [David] or Cyle [Larin], they want to be receiving in those pockets of space off the front. At times, we get left with a line that is not stretched. That space doesn’t really open up. I think Ike gives us that opportunity.”

Ugbo only played 53 minutes during the Octagonal across four substitute appearances. It’s clear, though, that he can be an impactful player, even off the bench, so giving him a start to build chemistry with either David or Larin would behoove everyone. If they find that connection on the pitch now, it’ll be a seamless change when Ugbo checks into a game at the World Cup.

More than anything, Ugbo deserves a shot given his strong finish to the season in his first proper run in a top-five European league. Herdman has constantly spoken about wanting his players in “Tier 1” leagues, now it’s time to reward those who transition to that environment without a hitch.
