Rodrigo Schlegel is the most unlikely hero in MLS history for his goalkeeping heroics against New York City FC in 2020, but the Argentine center back is now tasked with anchoring the backline alongside Antonio Carlos from the opening whistle against the likes of Romell Quioto and Djordje Mihailovic.

Robin Jansson's season ending foot injury was the biggest hit to Orlando City's trophy hopes this season. Can Schlegel hold up in a playoff run? It's impossible to know until we see it, for better or for worse.
