    On a quick glance, I didn't see Palomares mentioned anywhere on here recently. I remember folks wondering about where he'd disappered to a while ago. According to an article on the USSoccer website, Rongen has named him to a tournament team, and he's playing for NK Osijek (Croatia).

    Osijek is a nice town in the Slavonian part of Croatia. That area is pretty poor, but I have a friend who lives near there and he can dig up some info on whether or not Palamores is there and he can tell me some stuff about the team as he goes there to watch them play...........that is if anyone is interested.

    To the best of my knowledge this is the first time US Soccer has named the Croatian club in connection with Palomares, though ezpatari had been telling us this for some time...

    I did a search and found a couple games that Palomares had played in last year for Graficar Vodovod, a second division team in Osijek...dunno if he was on loan from NK (a first division team), has been tranferred for this season, or the USSF has the club slightly wrong.

    This site tracks the Croatian 1st divison among many others and doesn't list Palomares on Osijek's roster. The season has just barely started over there and I don't think Osijek has played yet, so maybe it is not updated with this year's line-up just yet. Also, he could be with a youth or reserve team.

    Isn't Croatia underwater these days?

    NK Osijek has played four matches so far, Palomares has yet to appear. The second division started yesterday, I haven't been able to find Graficar's lineup anywhere.

    I checked into this a bit when I saw the roster on ussoccer.com and found about as much as folks are reporting here, but nothing about his current status. Remember, however, ussoccer.com may only be listing Palomares's last club team. He may not have a current club.

    Wrong side of the Danube for that, I believe.
