The New Mother Of All Canadians Abroad

Recommended Posts

Maybe I don't know how to use the search function on this site but I can't find any reference to this player in this thread so here is another Canadian prospect playing abroad:

http://www.colocolo.cl/equipos/formacion/sub-13/

Diego Reveco is born in Winnipeg

Yeah, 13 is pretty young but I figured why not throw it out as Colo Colo are one of Chile's biggest teams. The mom and dad tag team living in Chile with him but the dad might be there full time now.

As a '99 he's eligible for the next U17 cycle and is technically a U14 (they haven't updated their website i would assume)...unfortunately if he's really good he'll end up playing for Chile.

Not sure if it's already been mentioned, but it seems like Joseph Di Chiara is now with Torpedo Moskva, a Russian first-division side.

Perhaps someone else knows more about what kind of level this is, but hopefully he gets some minutes.

Edit: Link to his transfermarkt page: http://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/en/joseph-di-chiara/profil/spieler_181116.html

I believe that in first division you mean second level just under premiership right? Still probably better than Hungary though!

Yes, correct, 2nd level. I don't really know how it compares to Hungary TBH, but he wasn't getting any minutes there, so hopefully he can get on the pitch at least!

I follow the Russian first division (actually they changed the name this year to National Championship Football League) which is the Russian second tier since unfortunately my team Shinnik Yaroslavl has been playing there since their last relegation in 2008. It has a pretty good level of play (been to quite a number of games live and usually watch the highlights of most Shinnik games) and is a very professional league since the teams are all very motivated to promote into the big money Russian Premiership. From the little of what I have seen of the Hungarian league on video and also judging by the large number of not so good Canadian players that managed to play in that league (who I don't think would have been good enough for the Russian first division), I would say this is a better league than the NB1 of Hungary especially after you get past the top couple of Hungarian teams and look at the level of the mid and lower level teams.

Torpedo Moscow is one of the traditional big Russian/Soviet teams with a great history but a very turbulent one for the last two decades. At times there were actually two Torpedo Moscows both playing in the RPL causing a divided fan base, debate over which was the real Torpedo and lots of financial problems for both teams resulting in various bankruptcies, refoundings and playing in the lower divisions. Now there is only one Torpedo and they have worked their way back to the first division. This is their 2nd year in the first division and they finished a respectable 8th last year but this year they are 13th in the 17 team league one point ahead of my Shinnik and two points out of the relegation zone. As a good Shinnik fan I absolutely hate all the Moscow teams but Torpedo is probably the least objectionable of a bad lot! :) And their fans stuck with them through the low divisions so respect for that. I saw Torpedo play live against Shinnik a couple of times in the good old days when both were in the RPL.

I think we all expected DiChiara to get a lot more playing time in Hungary than he did given he was considered one of Samara's best reserve players and even played in 5 RPL matches. However, sometimes there is a lot more involved in getting playing time than just ability and who knows what happened at KTE behind the scenes. The positive thing about this transfer is not only is it a transfer to a team that is as good or in my opinion probably better than KTE, but he is listed right away as part of their first team unlike KTE who put him to the reserve team. I also looked at their last two friendly games and in the last game he played the entire second half and the previous game he played the entire first half so it looks like he is definitely in their plans (both games they changed most of the team at the half). They also signed him to a contract until May 2016 so they must think he has some potential. BTW the league does not start play until mid March so I haven't been following things so much so a good catch by Addona on this transfer. Below are links from Torpedo's website to his profile and the announcement of his signing (all in Russian).

And to think that HE was the Canadian getting the minutes in Hungary. That doesn't bode well for JDC, now does it?

If not noted elsewhere he signed on with Vasas Budapest in Hungary second tier.

Torpedo Moscow? Wow. that's pretty decent! Surely he must get calls to a camp again??

If he is playing. I like move and he is now at a better level but I don't want us to call bench warmers.

yes....that is where he will play for the rest of this year. Jahn Regensburg sent him down there to get game action and find his fitness. The plan is to fight for a spot with the first team for next season.
