What makes you, you? I have met so many fascinating and inspiring soccer players, I thought it'd be interesting to see what you're all into right now. What's a quirk about you that plays a role in making you who you are? A quirk is defined as a peculiar behavioral habit. So, what's your quirk?
And, what's your current obsession? An obsession is something that preoccupies your mind and/or lifestyle. What's your craze, compulsion, or passion today, this week...this year? What are you into?
QUIRK: "So my quirk would probably be tanning because I grew up in the sun really in Miami and Jamaica and I'm used to being tan skinned...in Europe I got lighter because of the winter but as soon as the sun comes out I try to get my tan back as soon as possible, so when it's warm outside I always try to get some sun, whether it's tanning, playing or training outside."
OBSESSION: "My obsession is authentic food. I love eating anything homemade, organic, original and/or specific to a certain culture...although it's unfortunately getting harder and harder to easily locate authentic food because everything has become industrialized...but otherwise, good food and drinks are definitely something I thoroughly enjoy (always in the right doses)."
