Interesting facts about the U.S. World Cup soccer team:

-Out of 22 team members, 15 were born in the U.S.-But of the 15, six are the sons of immigrants.

-Of the seven born elsewhere, two are from Uruguay, one from South Africa, one from El Salvador and three from Europe.

-The Americans are not the only team to import its athletes. The Irish squad, for example, has only seven native-born players. In the modern soccer era, players no longer stick to one fixed position on the field; that's also the case with their team allegiances.
