Ua hoʻomaikaʻi lōʻihi ʻo Alvarez, ʻo ia no ka Galaxy - nā mea āna i kau inoa ai i ka ʻaelike ʻoihana ma 15 - a ma ke kahua o ka National Junior Team no Mexico a me United States (ʻoi aku ma mua o kēlā me kēia ʻike e pili ana i kēia ma hope aʻe), akā ma hope o ka neʻe ʻana me ke kōkua i kona wā ʻo MLS i ka mahina ʻo Malaki, ka hapanui o nā mea i ʻōlelo ʻia a kākau ʻia hoʻi a puni ka lula o kona "bromance" me Ibrahimovic .

I ka manawa mua, ʻike liʻiliʻi ʻo Ibrahimovic a me Alvarez i nā mea maʻamau. ʻO ka mua ka 20 mau makahiki kahiko, kokoke i hoʻokahi wāwae a lanakila i ke kolamu o nā ʻōpio i kūpono i ka hale waihona hale. Ke hoʻomaka nei ʻo Alvarez e hoʻomaka i kahi kikowaena limahana mua, akā ua ʻike ʻo Ibrahimovic i kahi mea iā Alvarez a ʻaʻole makaʻu ke makaʻu iā ia.

"Loaʻa iā ʻoe nā mea pāʻani e pāʻani ana i ka poʻe kime a me nā poʻe ʻē aʻe e noʻonoʻo nei e pili ana i ka pôpeku," i ʻōlelo ai ʻo Swede i ka Iulai.

"[19659002] Hōʻike ka makuakāne o Alvarez iā Ibrahimovic - ka poʻe makemake e kapa iā ia iho he liona - mālama pono i kāna keiki" me he mea lā he keiki liʻiliʻi kāna. " kekahi kāne ʻōpio o 17 mau makahiki, "Efra" kākoi ʻia i ka ʻike e like me ka hiki.

"He kanaka lealea ʻo Zlatan]," i haʻi aku ai ʻo Alvarez iā ESPN FC i mua o ka lumi kīhaka o Galaxy. "Mai koʻu hālāwai ʻana iā ia ma ka lā mua, makemake mau ʻo ia e kōkua iaʻu. ʻIke wau me ia a hoʻomaka ʻo ia e hāʻawi iaʻu i nā ʻōlelo aʻo, a hoʻolohe ʻoe iā ia, ua makemake ʻoe e aʻo. ʻIke ʻo ia i ka mea e pono ai.

"19659009] Hoʻokumu ʻo Efrain Alvarez i mau minuke 30 mai ka Dignity Health Sports Park a lilo i mau hana hoʻohiki no ka Galaxy. ʻO Kirby Lee / ʻAmelika Huipū ʻODlelo

ʻAʻole like ʻo Alvarez a me Ibrahimovic i ka ʻike mua. Ua ulu ʻo Zlatan ma ka moku kaulana ʻo Rosengard o Malmo, i koho ʻia no nā mākua mai Bosnia a me Kroasia. Ua paipai ʻia ʻo Alvarez ma kahi o ke ʻĀina e kona makua e neʻe aku iā ia e haʻalele loa iā ia mai nā alanui o ke kahua o ka City Terrace o East LA

"Ua paʻakā a [City Terrace]; ʻaʻole hiki iā ʻoe ke hele ma hope o ka 20h a i ʻole, "wahi a Alvarez." Hiki iā ʻoe, akā hiki naʻe i ka pilikia. Nui nā pūʻulu āpau a puni iā ​​mākou, no laila ua hoʻāʻo ʻo [koʻu makuakāne] e kōkua iā mākou e pale aku i ka pôpeku ʻana i hana mua no ka hele ʻana mai. "

I kākau i ka ʻohana o Alvarez "waiho i ka pôpeku" he euphemism. ʻO Chencho kahi pākiʻi nui o Chivas i neʻe i United States 35 mau makahiki i hala mai nei mai ke kūlanakauhale o Jocotepec (Jalisco), ma nā kahakai o Lake Chapala, hui ʻia kāna wahine i hānau ʻia ma Zacatecas i Los Angeles ma 1987, s ' ua noho ʻia ma City Terrace ma 1992 a he keiki nāna ʻeono, ua hana ʻo Chencho ma ke ʻano he kumu aʻoaʻo a ua hoʻopukapuka he nui i ka hoʻonohonoho ʻana i kāna mau keiki i ka pāʻani.

"Ua hoʻopau ʻo ia no ka mea ua nui kou manawa ma luna o lākou," i ʻōlelo ai ʻo Chencho. "Ua hoʻopau kou manawa āpau i nā pôpeku: kakahiaka, ʻaina awakea a me ka pāʻina. Hele mai kekahi wahi i kekahi, mai ka Pōʻakahi a hiki i ka Pōʻalima e hoʻokele, hoʻomaha ma ka Pōʻalima a me nā pāʻani i ka Pōʻaono a me ka Lāpule - a laila hana wau ma kahi kahu ʻeke. "

"ʻO kēlā ke ola o mākou, ʻoiai mākou e ola nei," i ʻōlelo mai ai. "Pono mākou e hana maʻa mau."

ʻO Alvarez, ka mea i kaʻana i kahi lumi me kona mau hoahānau ʻehā, ʻaʻole ia i like i ke keiki ma ka pā pôpeku. ʻAe ʻia kāna kūlana pale e hiki ai iā ia ke mālama pono ia ia, ʻoiai ʻo ka mea hilinaʻi ia iā ia iho i kona ʻano wiwo ʻole o ke pāʻani. Eia naʻe, ma kahi kūkā lōʻihi, he manawa.

Ua hoʻomaka ʻo Alvarez e pāʻani i ka makahiki 4, i mea mua he mea hoʻokūkū paona, akā ua kāhea ʻo ia i ka wā e kī ana ka pōpepa i kāna ʻōpū i kāna pāʻani maoli maoli a aʻo koke i kona kūlana Ua kūlohelohe kēlā ma kēlā ʻaoʻao o ka mahina.

"Ma hope iho, ʻōlelo mai ke kumu," E hoʻokau aku au iā ʻoe ma ka mahina, "wahi a Alvarez. "Ke hoʻomanaʻo nei wau i kekahi lā i huhū ai au no ka mea ua nalowale nei. Lawe wale wau i ka pōpeku a hoʻomaka mua ke alo me nā kānaka a pau. Ma hope o kēlā, manaʻo wau, "Wow, ua loaʻa koʻu kūlana. ""

e ka paani opio, pāʻani ma ke kime ma kāna hui makahiki. Loaʻa nō hoʻi ʻo ia i ka manaʻo o Eric Cantona i ka wā e hoʻomaʻamaʻa ana i ka Cosmos West ma New York me ka Palani Farani, a laila ua lilo ke alakaʻi o ka pôpeku no ka Cosmos, uaʻae ʻia e nā ʻano loea o ka mea hoʻokani pila.

ʻAno ke keʻena ʻana ma Cosmos, ʻO Total Futbol Academy a me Chivas USA i pau i ke kalaka ma, heʻoiaʻiʻo nō hoʻi, ua mālama ʻo US Soccer iā ia. Ua hoʻomaka ʻo Alvarez i kāna ʻoihana me ka National Junior Team i ʻAmelika Hui Pū ʻIa i ka makahiki 12. ʻO ia ʻo ke kāpena liʻiliʻi ma lalo o 15 mau makahiki ma 2016. ʻAʻole naʻe hauʻoli ia me ka mea ua mālama ʻia ʻo ia a me kāna mau hoa hele, ka mea nāna i haki i ka pīhoihoi ʻo Mekiko.

"Ma kahi hoʻomoana o US, ʻaʻole wau i makemake i ke ʻano o kā lākou mālama ʻana iaʻu, ʻaʻole wale iaʻu wale nō me kekahi o nā mea pāʻani ʻē aʻe," wahi a Alvarez. "ʻAʻole wau i maopopo pehea ua aʻo ʻo Mekiko, akā ua ʻike lākou ua hele mai lākou e kamaʻilio me aʻu, ʻoiai ma ka home."

E hiamoe ana ʻo Alvarez i ka wā i hele aku ai ʻo Juan Carlos Ortega, mua o ka hui o nā hui ma ka hui hui ʻana me Mexico a ʻo ke alakaʻi o ka metotia a me ke kūkulu ʻana i ka Galaxy - ua kīkē ʻia i ka puka a noi aku no Mekiko.

"Aia wau i loko o ka lumi moe o koʻu mau mākua e hiamoe ana a ma hope ka lumi noho, no laila ua ala wau a paʻa wau i kahi hāpana a me nā pahu wahine a waiho wau i nā shorts a hele wāwae ʻole. ʻAʻole au i ʻike i kēlā kāne, eia naʻe koʻu makuakāne, "ʻO ia mai ka hui ʻo Mekikoka", "wahi a Alvarez.

"No laila ke kamaʻilio nei ʻo ia iaʻu a me koʻu makuakāne - ke hiamoe mau nei wau - a haʻi mai ʻo ia iaʻu e makemake ana e kāhea aku iaʻu i ka hui aupuni Mekiko a i ʻole he ʻelua hale ʻaila paha. ʻekolu pule. Ua nīnau lākou inā e hele wau i laila. "

I Kepakemapa 2016, ua hui ʻo Alvarez i ka hui Mekiko a lilo iā ia ma nā papa o U15 a me U17 i nā makahiki i hala. ʻIke pū nō ʻo ia i ke komo ʻana i loko El Tri no ʻOlau U17 World Cup ma Brazil. Akā ʻaʻohe kumu e hōʻoiaʻiʻo ai ka luna hoʻokūkū e hōʻike aku iā Mekiko, e like me ka makuakāne o Alvarez, i ʻōlelo ai e kali ana ʻo ʻAmelika i "Mexico e hana i kahi hewa liʻiliʻi" a "hoʻomau nā" ho'āʻo. hoʻihoʻi hou i ka pale o nā Bitu a me nā Kūpono.

Ua hālāwai ʻo Alvarez a me kona makuakāne me ke poʻo kuhikua o ʻAmelika Gregg Berhalter i kēia makahiki e kūkākūkā i ka papahana USMNT.

"He kanaka maikaʻi loa ʻo [Berhalter]," wahi a Alvarez. "Ua haʻi mai ʻo ia iaʻu i ke kaʻina a me nā mea a pau e pili ana i ka kime US, pehea e pili ai i nā poʻe ʻōpio a me ko lākou kumu. He mea maikaʻi e hoʻomaka ai. "

Akā ʻaʻole i haʻalele ʻia ʻo Mexico. Ua hoʻolālā ka luna poʻo Gerardo "Tata" Martino e hoʻokomo iā Alvarez i loko o kahi minicamp i waiho ʻia no nā poʻe ʻōpio ma 18 a me ʻAukake 21, akā ua lilo ʻo ia e alakaʻi ʻia e ka luna kumu Guillermo Barros Schelotto, nāna e makemake e mālama. ʻōpio'ōpio'ōpio ma muli o nā hana i hoʻohau ai i ka hui mua.

"I kēia manawa, aia ke Mekiko," wahi a Alvarez, nāna e hoʻoholo i ka hopena hope loa i ka mea maikaʻi loa iā ia a me kona ʻohana ma hope mai.

He ʻano helu ko ka makuakāne o Alvarez: ʻoiai ʻo ia e kū aku i luna El Tri no nā kumu noʻonoʻo, ʻike ʻo ia no ke kumu o kāna keiki a ʻo ʻAmelika Huipū ʻia a e hoʻi hou ʻia ka hoʻoholo hope loa iā ia.

"Inā ʻo ia e haʻi ʻo Mexico, ʻo Mexico. Inā e ʻōlelo ʻo ʻAmelika, ʻo ia iā ʻAmelika Hui PūʻIa - a ke ʻōlelo nei au me ka ʻehaʻeha o koʻu puʻuwai, "wahi a ka makua kāne o Alvarez. "ʻOi aku koʻu makemake ʻo Mexico no Meksiko, akā ua loaʻa kaʻu keiki i kāna mau kumu, eia hoʻi ua hānau ʻia ʻo ia."

"I ka hopena, mahalo ʻoe ʻelua, akā ʻo ia ka mea āu e makemake ai iā ʻoe iho," ʻo ia ka lawe ʻana iā Alvarez. "E kamaʻilio pū ʻoe me kāu ʻohana e pili ana i ka mea a lākou e makemake ai a me ka mea ʻaʻole lākou e makemake ai, a ma ka lā e hoʻoholo ai ka mea hoʻokani."


He mea maʻalahi ke nānā ʻia ke kāhea o kahi mea hoʻowalewale e like me Alvarez, akā ʻo ka leka o kēlā o ke Galaxy ke hele nei kahi lōʻihi lōʻihi e hele i polish i nā hana maka. ʻO Dos Santos, ka mea nāna i lilo i ka hana ʻōpio ʻōpio o Barcelona, ​​ʻo Mas Masia, a ua kokoke loa ia iā Alvarez, i ʻōlelo ʻia ai he mea pāʻani paha ʻo Alvarez i ka pôpeku aupuni ma Mexico. Ua wehewehe ʻo ia iā ia me he "lālaha pale" nona hoʻi ka nui e aʻo a hoʻomaikaʻi ".

Hana ʻo Barros Schelotto e kōkua iā Alvarez e heluhelu wikiwiki i nā ʻāpana, e hoʻomaopopo i kona kūlana a me ke kākoʻo i ka manawa kūpono. A laila, manaʻo ʻo Alvarez e nalo i nā pāʻani, ke hōʻike nei i kahi incoherence maʻamau i waena o nā mea ʻōpio'ōpio a me ka mea e pono ai ka hana.

Hoʻopiʻi ka makuakāne o Alvarez no kona hopohopo pili i kona nānā pili a me kona hanohano. Ua hoʻokau ʻo Barros Schelotto, ʻo Ibrahimovic lāua ʻo dos Santos i ke poʻo o kāna keiki ma ke poʻo o kāna keiki ʻōpio ke alakaʻi iā ia ma ka ʻaoʻao kūpono. ʻO ka mea e pono aiʻo Alvarez, kahi mamao loa mai ka glitz a me ka hoʻonani pinepine e hoʻopuni iā ​​ia, ʻo ia ke uku aku i ka poʻe i hoʻolimalima i ke kālā.

"ʻAʻohe ala ʻē aʻe e hoʻomaikaʻi i [koʻu ʻohana] ma mua o ka hana hoʻoikaika. , i laila, ʻo ia ka mea maikaʻi loa e hiki ai iaʻu, "wahi a Alvarez. "Eia pehea e hōʻike aku ai ua mahalo wau. E hōʻike iā lākou i ka mea a lākou e pono ai ma ka mahina. E mahalo hoʻi lākou. "
