Mirjana Lucic Became a US Citizen

She posted the pics on her Facebook page. Not sure whether this means she will play for the US now. Huge congrats either way!

I don't think she'll play for USA

Don’t squander the gold of your days listening to the tedious, trying to improve the hopeless failure, or giving away your life to the ignorant and the vulgar. These are the sickly aims, the false ideals of our age.

Becoming a citizen doesn't necessarily mean she's changing her nationality necessarily.

She's been living in the US for almost 15 years now and all of her adult life. She's more American than Croatian at this point. And if she does her change playing nationality to the US, it isn't going to mean anything in the form of wildcards.

Wow, unfortunately, you don't get to decide about that, so you could at least wait until she confirms that she'll play for USA.

I just mean that she's spent half her life here and has her entire life in the US now. She hasn't lived in Croatia since she was a teenager. If she wants to play for Croatia still, that's her choice though.

Re: Mirjana Lucic Became a US Citizen

It's funny how up in arms people get about citizenship. I've always felt
that if you're happier somewhere else than in your birth country, why wouldn't you try to switch citizenship? If an American felt more comfortable in, let's say Brazil, I would feel the same way. It doesn't mean they hate where they come from, it's just they found a better fit. Good luck to her.

Re: Mirjana Lucic Became a US Citizen

Good for her!! She's been living in this country as a legal alien most of her adult life and I personally think this is to her benefit... When it comes time to collecting social security legal aliens do not get the full amount.. Besides why live in a country where you pay taxes and don't have the right to vote? When a legal alien gets in trouble with the law--they do their time and are quickly deported.
