Catarina Macario recently had an amazing, eventful day with a call-in for a training camp with the U.S. women’s national team. On the same day, she also received her U.S. citizenship.
Macario is one of the four Stanford college players who were invited to participate in the U.S. team’s gathering on Thursday. The event was organized approximately after seven months. On Thursday, she shared the good news of becoming a U.S. citizen in social media. She described the feeling as an honour and shared how humbled she is to get a place in the USWNT training camp. There is no doubt that Macario is a budding football star. She is a two-time MAC Hermann Trophy winner and has a Stanford single-session record with 32 goal and 23 assists in 2019.
For the first time, she is called for a senior national team camp but still is unable to appear in matches with the national team for which she requires permission from FIFA. On Friday afternoon, the U.S. coach Vlatko Andonovski also shared his excitement for Macario’s new beginning and her new chapter in career via a video conference. The national team was also looking forward to her joining and had been rating her for years.
