Social Spotlight: Luis Gil and Mario Rodriguez

On Friday U-23 MNT roommates Luis Gil and Mario Rodriguez combined to score important road goal to help the U-23 MNT come away from Colombia with a 1-1 draw in the first leg of the Olympic Qualifying Playoff. After an overnight flight to Dallas – where the second leg will be played on Tuesday’s - the duo hosted a Facebook Live Q&A to chat with fans.

The questions and comments scrolled by in rapid-fire succession, but the guys managed to answer a number of question in ten minutes before heading to dinner.

Check out the video and hear them talk about the game in Colombia, what Luis and Ronaldinho have in common, Superman or Batman, favorite EPL club, and is Luis wearing a Rolex? They also answered the most asked question: Ronaldo or Messi. Oh, and see who gets ‘roasted’ and gets a hashtag created for him. 

Hey fans! It's U-23 #USMNT players Luis Gil and Mario Rodriguez here to answer your questions. #RoadToRio
