Alfonso “Al” Marina was a U.S. soccer player who spent his career in the American Soccer League, earned one cap with the U.S. national team, and was a member of the 1956 Olympic soccer team.

Marina earned one cap with the U.S. national team in a 3-2 loss to Iceland on August 25, 1955.[1] Marina was then selected for the 1956 U.S. Olympic soccer team. The U.S. had a successful tour of Asia before the games, winning five and losing three. However, the games proved anticlimactic when the U.S. lost, 9-1, to Yugoslavia in the first round.[2] At the time of the games, he played for Brooklyn Hispano in the American Soccer League.
