New York (AFP) – FIFA has allowed Real Salt Lake striker Rubio Rubin to play for the national team in Guatemala after playing with the United States.

He made his first-team debut in 2014 and accumulated seven international calls, all in friendlies. Not cited since 2018.
Robben played for Utrecht from the Netherlands (2014-17), Silkeborg from Denmark (2017), Stabik from Norway (2017), Tijuana (2018-20), Dorados (2019-20) and San Diego Loyal (2002) before signing with SALT. lek last year. He has not scored any goals in six matches this season.
His mother is from Guatemala and his father is Mexican.
