After coming up through the Colorado Rapids academy, Sam Vines became a first team regular during his time in Major League Soccer before moving to Belgium in 2021. Vines can contribute defensively, get forward, and pick out clever passes from the left wing. He’s also more than comfortable rotating into the midfield or into the left halfspace to create space for one of his left-sided teammates.
