The Rochester Rhinos are bringing their hardware to town, and a familiar face along with it.

The Rochester Rhinos will also be bringing the spoils from their USL Championship season, including the USL Championship Trophy won with a pair of dramatic goals from match MVP Asani in a 2-1 win over L.A. Galaxy II.

The trophies will join the striker (pictured above, right) at Mes Que on Hertel Avenue for a Happy Hour celebration prior to the United States’ World Cup qualifying match at 6:30 p.m. ET.

Asani played for the Wolves in 2013, and spent 2011-14 with the Griffs under coach Dermot McGrane.
