Men’s Soccer Team Meets US Ambassador to Spain

Providence RI- The US Ambassador to Spain, Alan Solomont, hosted the Brown University men's soccer team for some light refreshments at the Embassy Residence in Madrid.  Solomont has served as the Ambassador to Spain since December 24, 2009.

Solomont spoke to the team about Spain and fielded many questions from members of the Brown soccer team.   While in Madrid, the Bears have trained at the Spanish National Training Center, and have been able to see a La Liga game or Rayo Vallecano vs. Villareal, and also toured the Prado Museum.

Brown earned a 1-1 tie in its first game against Rayo Vallecano, and went on to defeat Atletico Madrid, 2-0.
