Now at ESPN, Alejandro Moreno is a star analyst – one of the network’s most recognizable faces for World Cup coverage.

Moreno is calling matches and providing analysis in the studio.

As a Spartan, Moreno was a four-time First Team All-Region selection and a four-time All-Conference recipient. He led the Spartans in goals all four years of his career, 1998-2001. In his 11-year professional career, he played for three Major League Soccer champion teams.

He returned to campus last February, when he was inducted into the UNCG Athletics Hall of Fame. “I am honored and proud to be a Spartan,” he said. (See photo.) As he explained in an interview with UNCG Athletics, “Here at UNC Greensboro, I had a lot of success on the field and a lot of success off the field.” He noted that he completed his UNCG bachelor’s program in International Business in three and a half years.
