The long-limbed midfielder deftly exchanges consecutive give-and-go passes with a Feyenoord teammate in traffic and fires the ball inside the near post to tie the game. It's a shimmering play, all the more remarkable because de Guzman, barely 18, is the youngest player on the field. Last Sunday, a week after his tying goal against Roosendaal, de Guzman was voted man of the match as Rotterdam-based Feyenoord defeated powerhouse PSV Eindhoven to move into a tie atop the Eredivisie standings, the top soccer league in Holland. Already, wealthy English clubs Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal are reportedly preparing massive financial bids for the precocious midfielder. In the Netherlands, he has been compared to French superstar Zinedine Zidane."

He has scored four goals and added three assists as a midfielder with Feyenoord Rotterdam, which is in a three-way battle for first place with PSV Eindhoven and AZ Alkmaar. Now, he's the focus of an emerging tug of war between Canada and the Netherlands. Both countries desperately want him to play for their national team."
