  • What They're Saying: Ricardo Pepi

    “I want to start by saying that I am a Mexican-American and that I am super proud of my heritage. It’s something that will never be taken away from me, no matter what national team I play for. I made this decision because I felt the USA trusts me and I think that’s due to  [U.S. national team coach] Gregg Berhalter and how he emphasized this to me. I had good talks with Gregg and I feel I can make an impact with the USA and help this national team really do something special now and in the future.”
