San Juan, P.R. - University at Albany's Christian Mejia earned a spot on the Puerto Rico National Men's Soccer team and will represent his country at the Digicel Caribbean Cup from Oct. 2-6, as announced by the Puerto Rico Football Federation. The junior goalkeeper, who also played for Puerto Rico's U-21 squad over the summer, is the only current America East Conference men's soccer player to be called up to represent his country's Senior National Team.

Mejia, who did not yield a goal when he made his Great Dane debut in the second half against San Diego State on Sept. 26, will be a part of Puerto Rico's squad during round-robin group play. Group A will be made up of Anguilla, the Cayman Islands, St. Martin and Puerto Rico and play all of its matches at Juan Ramon Loubriel Stadium in Bayamon, P.R. Mejia and the Puerto Rico squad will compete against Anguilla on Oct. 2, St. Martin on Oct. 4 and the Cayman Islands on Oct. 6.

The Digicel Caribbean Cup is the qualifying tournament for next year's CONCACAF Gold Cup, which is the main association football competition to determine the regional champion of North America, Central America and the Caribbean. The top four teams at the Digicel Caribbean Cup will automatically qualify for the Gold Cup.
