Sky Blue FC’s Raquel Rodriguez is headed to Lima, Peru, to represent Costa Rica in the 2019 Pan American Games.
Costa Rica kicks off the Pan American Games in Group B that same day against Panama at 5:30 p.m. ET. Group B consists of Costa Rica, Panama, Argentina, and Peru.
“Although my focus right now is on the remaining games with Sky Blue before I leave with the National Team, I am looking forward to getting together and playing again for my country with my teammates,” she said.
Rodriguez has been a key part of the Sky Blue FC roster since 2016 when she was drafted in the NWSL College Draft. The 2016 NWSL Rookie of the Year has made a total of 66 appearances, scoring eight goals, and notching three assists.
