“Being selected for the U.S. National side for the Westchester Cup last year was an amazing feeling. I had no idea what it meant until I rode out onto the field that afternoon before we played England. I’ve never felt prouder to be an American.
I’m Argentinean by birth, but American by choice. We moved to the U.S. just two months after I was born, so what I say now is that I’m 50 percent Argentinean and 100 percent America! Playing in the Westchester was very special for me and losing hurt – so I’m looking forward to a rematch.”
