There are no age-limits in this leagues? And is he really such gifted?
Pierie is not american. His parents are not even american. He just happened to be born there when his father was working there and never returned back. I’m surprised he’s even showing interest.
Under Trump’s law he wouldn’t have gotten American citizenship lol.
Maybe he wants minutes. All I know is USMNT rightfully wants him and their LB spot is a black hole.
I wouldn’t say black hole. Striker is worse. They have Robinson, who has shown a lot.
Its both bad.
Every position except midfield and center back has no depth. And pretty much every position is bad.
He actually is American by law. The “how (insert country name) is this player” debates are completely useless. It’s up to the country’s laws and the person to decide.
Let the kid make his own choice, and it should be respected either way. It’s his life, not the life of any fan who is happy or upset with what goes on with their National football team.
Saying that, I think his comments were more of a “he’ll consider it eventually if he’s not a regular in the Dutch National Team” approach. I don’t think he’s switching anytime soon.
If he's good enough for the Dutch he'll play for them... if not he'll "choose" the US in which case, the Dutch won't care. Even if he developed under them.
I didn't know him until he scored, so I can't tell. He showed a nice touch and composure in his goal, though. Must be really good for them to risk putting a kid with no professional contract in such a big game.
@Pavel Buchnevich watched Sao Paulo x Flamengo yesterday for the u17 Brazilian Cup, the game ended 2-2. Reinier was a beast, heads and shoulder above every other player on the pitch. He scored a goal, had a assist and hit the post. His goal is the first of the video (he's the nr 10)
I heard good things about him. He played recently in a tournament in England with the Brazil sub 17's, and he was apparently their best player all tournament, but also in a loss to the USA.
Brazil usually plays every year at the Nike Tournament in Florida, and that should be his age group this year, so I'll likely get to see him play. Vinicius and Rodrygo both played at that tournament. Rodrygo played in 2015, Vinicius in 2016. It should've been the opposite, but for some reason thats how it meant. I didn't get to watch Rodrygo play, but I remember watching Vinicius, and he was incredibly good. He was going places, and it was clear.
Guendouzi was the best player in France U21 draw (2-2) with Croatia. He's developping at an impressive rate.
Liverpool have promoted 16 year old (former Ajax) full back, Ki-Jana Hoever to u23. He is starting at RB and was Man of the Match in the mini-derby. One to keep an eye on.
The three-word assessment of wonderkid who has Liverpool VERY excited
...And less than a month later he is training with the First Team. At 16. With a team with an injury crisis at his position.
You never know...
Signed his first professional contract with celtic today! He is eligible to play in competitive games when he turns 16 in February. Brendan Rodgers has hinted that dembele will accompany the first team in a winter break trip to Dubai next month.
Keep an eye on Gerrard's cousin Bobby Duncan. He looks very good for his age along with Glatzel.
