    An interesting snippet:

    Brockton's Zico Veiga has been training with the Portuguese Superliga club Belenenses and has been called to the Cape Verde national team by coach Ricardo Rocha. Veiga, 21, a second-team junior college All-American at Massasoit Community College, has been playing for club teams Emigrantes das Ilhas and St. Michael's. ​

    ... it looks like Veiga has been in the States for a while; for all I know, he was born here, but I can't be certain of his citizenship.

    Good to see what kind of resume it takes to get called up to the Cape Verde side.
