Early Life and College

Mastroeni moved to the United States from his native Argentina with his family at the age of four, settling in Phoenix, Arizona. He attended Thunderbird High School, played college soccer at North Carolina State University and was drafted by the Miami Fusion with the 13th overall selection of the 1998 MLS College Draft.

Professional

Pablo played four seasons with the Fusion, becoming an automatic starter in his second year with the team in either central defense or defensive midfield, and was named to the MLS Best XI in 2001. He earned his first US cap against Ecuador on June 7 of that year.

The Fusion was contracted after the 2001 season and Mastroeni was the first overall choice of the 2002 MLS Allocation Draft, going to the Colorado Rapids, with whom he has been since.

On July 4, 2008 after a 4-0 Rapids win against Red Bull New York Mastroeni stated that he intends to move to either Spain's La Liga or Italy's Serie A after the end of the 2008 MLS season.[1]

International

When Chris Armas went out with an injury just weeks prior to the 2002 World Cup, Mastroeni found himself a starter in the opening game as the US defeated Portugal 3-2.

On January 10, 2005, it was reported that he tore the quadriceps in his left leg and would be out for six to eight weeks. [2] The injury happened while training with the national team.

On May 2, 2006, Mastroeni was named in the US World Cup squad for the second time in his career. In a FIFA World Cup 2006 match against Italy on June 17, Mastroeni was given a red card for an aggressive tackle in the first half. Mastroeni was fined CHF 7,500 and received a three game suspension, thus missing the last US match of the World Cup and the first two matches of the 2007 CONCACAF Gold Cup.

On February 7, 2007 during a friendly between the United States and Mexico Mastroeni was the team captain.
