Despite the fact that she once represented the Mexican Women's National Team, Tatiana Flores , younger sister of Arsenal FC's Mexican midfielder Marcelo Flores, decided to play this Thursday with the England U-16 team.
The 14-year-old Chelsea FC forward was born in Canada; However, she is the daughter of Mexican soccer player Rubén Flores and her maternal grandparents are English , so she got the opportunity to wear the “La Rosa” jersey number 11 .
Tatiana even had a dream debut with the English, as she was captain and scored a goal.
That moment was shared by the same soccer player through her Instagram account. For his part, her father published an image of her smiling in the locker room before the match, as well as the official photo of the children's team.

Tatiana came to England soccer with Essex FC , but in 2018, she and her two brothers, Silvana and Marcelo, signed with The Gunners . However, last June he went with his sister to play Chelsea, from the same city: London.
It is worth mentioning that Arsenal is the most winning team in the women's branch of British football with a total of three titles, while Chelsea has two titles , achieved in 2015 and 2018, making it one of the goals of the Flores sisters' new team is to match your neighbor.
In 2019 , this attacker was called up to a couple of international tournaments with Mexico's U-15 , but now it seems that her future lies with the European team.
For her part, Silvana also received an offer from England, but she rejected it to continue her career as a selected del Tri. He was even a fundamental part of the team that won the runner-up in the 2018 U-17 World Cup in Uruguay.

This case could be equated with that of Monica and Sabina Flores , who are twins and one decided to play for Mexico and the other to represent the United States.
While Marcelo is considered with the Aztec team , because he constantly participates in the calls for youth teams and with Los Gunners he opens up little by little ground, since he recently signed his first professional contract with the club, which consists of five seasons.
This year, the 17-year-old has trained on several occasions with the first team of the Spanish technical director, Mikel Arteta.
In an interview for the ESPN network, he shared his experience with the stars of Arsenal and being observed by the Spanish strategist Mikel Arteta and his coaching staff, in search of being able to give him a chance in the future.

I went to train like every day and then my teacher came and told me that he was going to train with the first team to help them in the game that comes this week. I had a lot of fun, I liked everything, I was playing as a left winger against (Héctor) Bellerín and there is a very good atmosphere. They all spoke Spanish
He also pointed out that the difference between categories is noticeable especially in physical resistance , so this blank will help him continue his desire to debut with the London squad at a professional level.
It leaves me with a spirit that I want to return to the first team training sessions and play with them all the time, it was my dream, to play with very good players but you have to wait your time. Everyone is different, there are those who run a lot and others are calmer, Bellerín is very good and Pepe has also done very good things
