USA women’s soccer tempts Damaris to play for its national team


Damaris Igurola was one of the greatest talents in the Spanish quarry. It is already a reality. The Basque player is a regular at Olympique Lyonnais and at the age of 22 she plays as if she were in her 30s. for this reason , Team USA had their sights set on it. The soccer girl, from a Basque father (professional Basque soccer player) and a Dutch mother, was born in Florida, USA, so she could be chosen by the American state, but also for Spain, which has always kept him in its lower classes, and for the Netherlands for his mother.
