GERARDO RAMIREZ – growing up in Guadalajara Mexico, I was introduced to the game of “Futbol” by the age of 5. During the 1986 World Cup in Mexico I was taken by my Father to watch Brazil Vs N. Ireland at Estadio Jalisco, an event/game which strengthened my love & passion for the game at an early age.
