More than half of US national team are immigrants, children of immigrants

The roster of 23 men representing the US tonight, June 7, as they face off against Costa Rica (8 pm ET, FS1, UniMás, UDN) reflect a varied background--similar to the country itself. In fact, more than half of them, as it turns out, are either immigrants themselves, or the children of immigrants.

Univision Deportes broke it all down in this nifty infographic released earlier today (click through on the tweet to see a full breakdown). Some 12 players were born elsewhere, or born to immigrant parents; five more could qualify for a second passport thanks to immigrant grandparents.

Despite their diverse origins, they’ll all unite under the Stars and Stripes tonight with a common mission. Isn’t America great?
