Your favourite player ever? – Gianluigi Buffon. He’s a legend.
Best teammate you have ever had? – There are so many, but if I had to name the best player I have played with, it would be Pedro Morales.
Best player you have played against? – Jermain Defoe. I played against him when I made my pro debut with the Whitecaps against Toronto FC in the Canadian Championship.
Which team do you dream to play for? – My club that I love and support, which is SS Lazio.
Marco’s favourite food? – I’m the least picky eater, I eat everything, but if I had to choose something… anything my nonna makes.
Marco’s favourite music band or singer? – I’m a big ’90s grunge fan. Bands like Bush and especially Pearl Jam are my favourites.
Marco’s favourite movie? – I’m not a huge movie guy… one of the ones I love and that I always go back to, are The Dark Knight series.
Marco’s favourite book? – I read a lot. If I had to pick one that I always enjoy going back to, it would be Man’s Search for Meaning by Victor Franco.
Do you follow any other sports? – I’m a big fan of Formula 1, I love tennis – even though I’m not good at it. Playoffs hockey and basketball are always fun to watch.
How do you think Canada will do at the World Cup? – We’re gonna win! (laughs). To be honest, I have faith we can get out of the group stage. It’s a tough group, but with the resilience that this team has shown, I believe we can get to the knockout stages.
