"I played very little in the First Division; soccer got me ahead. I took coaching courses and went out looking, I was in the Turkish and Caicos Islands, I went to Canada, and I was in South America, Argentina, and Brazil. I decided to grow abroad, it was risky," Flores said.
Ruben married a Canadian woman and now lives in England. His three children play, are good, and have been called up by the Mexican national team, but also by Canada and England. Which one will they decide on in the end?
