Saw AC Milan play Panathinaikos in Detroit, Mich., in a friendly. the first international game in Detroit since the 1994 World Cup.
There some stories on this at www.northoaklandsports.com
What is the approximate ability level of any players that are on here?
What is the ability level of players that are reading this thread?
I like to consider myself world-class. My judgement is pretty biased though.
If there are any genuine (or potential) high level players here I would be interested in talking to them
This thread is a ********ing joke lol.
Have to agree with the last post, where are all the actual players?!
I'm a long shot, but I will be trying out for as many teams as possible end of next year. I'm rehabing after surgery from a torn ACL (3 weeks post op).
Go back to playing pub soccer.
This should be a serious thread aimed at players, not one for pointless videos and comments.
I just don't understand on how you can have a thread about a few people who want to play in MLS that are from far countries. I mean, if MLS, NCAA, whatever Div tier league has never heard of you, what are your chances of even getting a tryout? As far as I am concerned, they don't have tryouts. Maybe they will for the reserves but that's about it.
Just being realistic here. I appreciate your enthusiasm and all.
Crap, i re-read the title "from country x", thought it only said "want to play soccer"
I think if you have a dream, so be it - if names mattered that much in this sport, noone would have a chance.
That is very, very true.
If anybody has a dream, that should always give it a shot, no matter if it is about soccer or not.
I would look at teams that are new to MLS like Vancouver, Philly and Portland. I know they had open tryouts when San Jose came into the league a few years back.
In fact I just searched Google for 'Portland Timbers Tryouts' and noticed they are having them in January. Get fit and sign up! Good Luck!
Yeah. I signed up last year for these upcoming tryouts. Each of them are weeks in different, had to narrow it down to distance and total costs (registration, etc).
Unfortunately, tearing my ACL (2nd time in 2 years, different leg) took me out of the running. Didn't help that the registration fee(s) were unrefundable.
So, I'll be signing up yet again - possibly even earlier - for next year's. As I get older, my chances become slimmer and competing with the guys fresh out of college is also a challenge. But it's a dream, and I'm following it. I look forward to hearing about other players doing the same.
Hello, i play soccer in italy , i live in Italy and i would like to play or to try play soccer in the USA or in university .It is possible?
You have the same targets as thousands/millions of other kids. If you have highlights of you playing and a CV, you can send it (Air-Mail) to MLS teams and try your luck.
If you are young enough, you can email coaches at universities/colleges, with the same info including school grades. You may also want to check out these websites for advice/information and possible placement at a college.
Just in case there are any players that read this section of the forum I am just letting them know that an elite level camp is taking place in the USA in 2011 with suitable players being signed by our FIFA registered agent and then getting trial opportunities in Europe.
Anyone interested should send me a message and I am happy to tell them more information.
Does anyone know of any USL or MLS open tryouts in the Northeast coming up anytime soon?
To the above poster, I have sent a reply to your private message.
We are now accepting applications for our 2011 elite level pro camp based at the Athletes Performance Centre in California.
The purpose of the program is to give players the opportunity to be represented by our FIFA agent, while training at a world class facility alongside the likes of LA Galaxy, and taken to trial at an appropriate level of professional team. We have connections in professional leagues all over the world. There is no upper age limit as long as the player has the necessary experience and ability
More information can be found out about us on
Clicking on the 'clients' tab will show some of the top level professional players we already represent.
Send me a private message on here or to our email listed on the site for more information.
Can a youth player, who still hasn't signed a professional contract, but has played quite a bit in the first-team in a foreign league, still be eligible for a college scholarship? Or does his professional playing time rule him out?
If he was paid one dime, he is out.
I say hello to everyone from Argentina.
Anybody knows how can I start a new thread?
I have some projects related to US Soccer and I would like to post a thread to know your opinion
