(Las Vegas, NV) -- It is one of the single greatest honors for any professional soccer player to be asked to play for their national team. That honor is yet again being bestowed on two Lights FC players who both have dual citizenship with United States & El

Salvador. Specifically, goalkeeper Tomas Romero & forward Roberto Molina, both key players this season for Lights FC, have received formal invitations to represent the El Salvador National Team in its upcoming match against Peru on Wednesday, September 27th. Unfortunately, due to injury, Molina has had to decline the invitation but Romero is expected to play in the match.

The match will take place in Washington, D.C. at Audi Field (home of Major League Soccer's D.C. United).

Both players have been a member of the Lights FC roster since the start of the 2021 season. And both have seen extensive playing time during both seasons.

Lights FC is within striking distance of the last two playoff spots with just five total matches left in the season (with four of those matches being held at home).
