Richard Guel – Phoenix, Arizona

“I’ve followed El TRI to over 23 cities (and counting), but it was minute 118 on October 10, 2015 in Pasadena, California versus USMNT and in the presence of 93-thousand fans that was the most memorable for me. Paul Aguilar’s strike in extra time secured MEXICO’s berth in the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia. It was an experience of a lifetime! Along with over 2000 of Pancho Villa’s Army closest friends we made our way to the Rose Bowl. We had members make the trip from all corners of the United States, Mexico and even Canada but wasn’t just the victory versus our biggest rivals that made it special , it was something more, the stadium was painted with Marquez, Dos Santos and Hernandez jerseys but it was something else that made it the single most memorable moment for me. I was a part of something larger than me, larger than life…it was the blood pumping though my veins, standing shoulder to shoulder with my soldados knowing that win or lose nothing would ever break our unified bond. SOMOS FAMILIA, SOMOS FUTBOL, SOMOS MEXICO.”
