CORAL GABLES, Fla. (www.hurricanesports.com)– Lisa Gomez (Boca Raton, Fla.) of the University of Miami soccer team will play the U.S. as a member of the Mexican National Team on Saturday, Jan. 12 at Blackbaud Stadium in Charleston, S.C., (7 p.m. ET on ESPN 2).

Gomez, a junior defender, was recently named to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America All-South Third Team after leading the Hurricanes to their first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance. She finished the season with four goals, three assists and 11 points. She scored the game-winning goal in Miami’s 3-0 shutout victory over Florida Atlantic (Sept. 4, 2001).

Gomez, who has dual citizenship, will play alongside defenders Gina Eagleson and Monica Gonzalez. Eagleson captained Mexico at the 1999 Women’s World Cup, while Gonzalez was named an NSCAA Second-Team All-American after starting for Notre Dame as a senior this past fall.
