The United States of America has different celebrations throughout the year, and August 16 is no exception as, on this day, National Rum Day takes place.

A day that had Carlos Vela receive a special gift to commemorate this occasion and his captaincy with LAFC, besides his outstanding performance as he currently leads the MLS top-scoring table.

Taking to social media, the LAFC skipper revealed that he had been given a customised bottle from a famous rum company, with the branding changed to read "Captain Vela" in reference to his leadership of his team and in the MLS since he was chosen to be the MLS All-Star captain over names like Zlatan Ibrahimovic or Wayne Rooney.

Josef Martínez also given customised bottle

Vela was not the only one to receive such a gift, as the Atlanta United striker Josef Martínez, who is second in the scoring table and the leader of the Five Stripes, also received a personalised bottle featuring the label "Captain Martinez".
