You can find Ish carrying the flag during the USA Cup opening ceremonies. It won’t be his first time at the youth tournament, either; the Minnesota United FC midfielder has played in the tournament for his local club, the Northwest Kickers. He was named Minnesota’s Mr. Soccer in 2012.
Mauricio Trujillo grew up playing soccer in the streets in Colombia and is now coaching a U9 boys in the small town of Princeton, MN! His passion for the game of futbol is evident, and the players love his Latin American accent!
This is Kiana’s first time at USA Cup! About a year ago, Kiana and her family moved from her hometown of Anchorage, Alaska to Indonesia. With a big move like that, she was forced to switch soccer teams when moving to her new home. In her last year playing abroad, she has played in tournaments in Singapour and Thailand. Kiana is visiting USA Cup to play with her old team from Anchorage. What a great homecoming!
“I’m just really exciting to see my friends and play with my team again,” she said.
