He is confident from his recent performances and he still followed the progress of American soccer from the Netherlands. He is proud to represent American soccer in Europe and acknowledges that he took a challenging career path because signing for a top club like Chelsea requires a very high level to get on the field (which he did twice in 2016).

Despite the obstacles ahead of him, Miazga hopes others follow in his footsteps because he believes the talent is there and that it will only help to elevate all areas of American soccer—including MLS.

“It’s definitely different playing every game and then coming to Europe but I’ve made it known I came to Europe to test myself and challenge myself and play against top European competition,” Miazga said.

This is the first Grand Slam in 18 years, with San Mig Coffee coach Tim Cone himself the last one to achieve the feat in 1996 with Alaska.

From the physically and mentally draining classic battle between two of the PBA's best teams, to the polarizing anguish of a loss and the euphoria of a victory, Rappler captured the historic moment unfold the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

MANILA, Philippines – Everything the San Mig Coffee Mixers' worked for in the past year culminated in one historic night when they accomplished a very rare feat – winning the Grand Slam.

The Mixers proudly marched into history on Wednesday night, July 9 after they bested the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters, 92-89, in Game 5 of the best-of-5 Finals series of the 2014 PBA Governors' Cup to cop their fourth straight trophy along with the hard-earned Grand Slam title.

Currently on loan with Vitesse, Miazga remains convinced he made the right move. “I had a good string of games earlier in the season but for whatever reason I wasn't playing a bit anymore,” Miazga told American Soccer Now from Arnhem.

And then European powerhouse Chelsea lured him to London. Miazga is not currently part of the national team program and consistent playing time is proving difficult to come by—even at Dutch side Vitesse, where he is now on a season-long loan.

When that time comes, we’ll evaluate it but right now I am focusing on Vitesse, getting games, and winning games here.

“I’ve been in contact with Chelsea a lot,” he added. They keep in touch with you usually after every game.

Miazga says there is “no bigger honor” than to represent his country and he is hoping to get back into the fold but he has no indication when that will be.
