Back in the day a player had to be really lucky and had to be at the right place at the right time to be discovered by a scout. Nowadays the internet can really help a kid achieve something in soccer. They can be seen if they post game footage on youtube and so on. now theres a social network called Globekick.com where the concept is just like facebook, but with soccer. you upload a your footage there and create your personal player profile. now the catch is that globekick.com is supervised by a really good soccer management agency that represent players like Aaron Lennon, Aaron Ramsey and more, so if the player is good enough then they can contact the player. we think its a really good alternative for a player that really wants to achieve their dream. i hope this helped and dont forget to check it out!
