Ochoa brothers in Mexico, Austria and Belgium

[AMERICANS ABROAD] The Ochoa family of Riverside, Calif., holds the distinction of being the first family to have three brothers playing abroad at the same time -- in three different countries no less.

Sammy Ochoa, the former U.S. U-20 striker, is in his sixth season in Mexico. This time has been spent entirely in the UAG Estudiantes (formerly Tecos) system, having shuttled between its first team in the First Division and second team in the Second Division.

Younger brothers Armando, 19, and Norberto, 18, joined Belgium's Club Brugge's U-21 team and Cashpoint SCR Altach of Austria's second division this summer.

Armando was an All-PDL selection this year with the Hollywood United Hitmen, while Norberto earned All-Development Academy honors with Arsenal FC's U-17/18 team.

Their older brother Jesus played briefly in MLS.

The Ochoas originally hail from Jiquilpan, Michoacan.
