Nike Friendlies: First international goal

Well, you did it Jogo. We were worried about your health going into the game and what do you end up doing? You scored a banger on your aunt’s birthday against top international competition (Netherlands). We are sure she was looking down and cheering you on. What a way to honor her! #theGomezway

Jogo with aunt Lorena. Life is too short
Psalm 147:3. He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.

It was an indescribable experience for all of us as well. To top it off, the team came back in a miraculous way from a two goal differential in the last few minutes to earn a tie that tasted like a victory. Great experience. We learn, we work, and we progress but most importantly, we remain humble and thankful for the support.

We have mixed feelings about your participation tomorrow. While we know the game is a great opportunity for you to showcase your talents, we worry that today’s injury (but most importantly the challenges this past week) may hinder your performance. We trust the Lord and your judgement that you will know when your body is unable to perform. However, having been in your shoes before, the heat of the moment can offset any pain that you may be experiencing. Please know that we are so proud of you and that no matter how the game goes, we will be back home supporting you and figuring out what the next logical steps will be. Love you son. Your family.

USL-1 Championship

Way to go kiddos. Jogo, your participation during the season, but more so, in the championship game proved instrumental to the victory. The hockey assist resulted in the winning goal and the save in the second half counted for at least a goal and a half. Congratulations.

Overall, the family’s proudest moment of the season came the day when both Jogos shared the field in Toronto. The family will eternally be grateful to the FC Dallas organization for these opportunities provided to the boys. Congratulations to both of you on a successful season. #TheGomezway.

Nike Friendlies: Primer gol internacional

Lo hiciste una vez más cabezón. Estábamos muy preocupados por tu salud en la antesala de éste encuentro y ¿qué haces? Terminas anotando un verdadero golazo en el cumpleaños de tu tía y nada menos que en contra de un rival complicado (la naranja mecánica). No nos cabe la menor duda que desde arriba, te estaba echando porras “la Lore”. ¡Qué mejor forma de honrarla hijo! #theGomezway

Fué una experienca indescriptible para todos nosotros. Y la cereza en el pastel fué que el equipo se supo recuperar de un marcador adverso en una forma milagrosa al poder empatar el encuentro en los últimos minutos. Sin duda alguna…una gran experiencia. Seguimos en modo de aprendizaje, de trabajo, y progresando pero lo más importante, seguimos humildes y agradecidos con el apoyo de la fanaticada. Nunca olvides de donde venimos ni a donde vamos.
