    Diego Iván Chavarri Rodriguez, a 1989 with Sporting Cristal in Peru, appears to have been born in New York.

    Looks like he's been playing for them this season, though he doesn't appear to be on their current roster page.

    From that link, a Peruvian father.

    With this said, Wiki seems uncertain about where he was born. It may be that some of these other reports are basing their own reports on Wiki. Can't be sure, at least not yet.

    He's with their "reservas" but doesn't seem to have a profile on the site.

    En este partido alternaron jugadores como Danny Sánchez, Diego Chávarri, Giancarlo Peña, Marcio Valverde, entre otros. Cabe resaltar, que el técnico Eduardo Asca hizo debutar al polifuncional jugador Giovanni Rubio, un juvenil de la categoría 93, que tuvo una aceptable participación.​

    I can actually confirm Wikipedia is accurate on this

    Diego was born in Queens, New York City

    Diego can ball

    Check out his goal against Alianza Lima last weekend.

    It's the first goal in this clip (they show it for the first 35 seconds)

    Despite the goalzo last weekend against Alianza Lima, Diego couldn't play today because he picked up a red cad at the end of last week too

    OK, so he's left-footed (despite the cracker he scored with his right) and he plays as a flank. Now we just need him to learn to defend and - boom! - problem solved. Left back a la Peru.

    English... not great. But good enough for a basic conversation.

    If you keep practicing, Brian, it'll get better. ;)

    I think from now on whenever these dual citizen's who didn't live here much express interest in playing for the US, the next question should be "can you sing the US national anthem?"

    There are a lot of people born and raised in the US that can't sing the anthem. Watch the Super Bowl? :D

    Just a tidbit

    Out of Jermaine Jones, Fabian Hurzeler, Diego Chavarri, Danny Williams, and Timothy Chandler the guy who had the best English was Danny Williams by far. What's interesting and funny about that is the fact that Danny has never even been to the United States.

    Of course Mix Diskerud and Alex Zahavi both have near-flawless English but they have been to the US more than the other guys (and Zahavi has lived in England too)
