Colorado Rapids attacker Danny Mwanga has been granted US citizenship.

The 21-year old Congo DR-born forward moved to the States in 2006 where he reunited with his mother and settled in Portland.

Mwanga has now become a US citizen, joining a group of 43 people from 22 countries for a US Citizenship and Immigration Service swearing-in ceremony in Northwest Portland and now has plans to push for USA national team selection.

"It would be an honor to represent the United States. Playing for the US in a World Cup would be a wonderful opportunity,” he told Goal.com.

Mwanga kicked off his MLS career with Philadelphia Union in 2010 after he was selected at number 1 in the MLS SuperDraft but moved onto Portland Timbers in 2012 prior to his Colorado shift at the end of last year.
