    What is The Puerto Rico National Team?   I was not avware that non-nations have "national teams?  Will this prevent him from playing on The US National team, if asked?

    Since puerto rico is a territory it still has it's national teams.  That being said if rules were really followed you would have a UK national team and not England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
