They are in Pool A of the Dutch Reserve League. 3-1-1 in 5 league games (13 GF/7 GA) and beat Waalwijk 4-0 in a Cup game. The players listed are between 18-20 (GK is 21)...****, looking at the match reports it looks like Borges h started as the #10, but since the 3rd match was moved to LB.

Why is that bad?  While CMNT needs a great AM, the best players coming out of the Eredivisie in recent years are defenders.  Most Eredivisie teams focus on forward thinking defenders who excel at the side pass - which means they can slot into most modern coaches' systems.  Learning a flexible position in a league that develops quality defenders may not be so bad  for Borges or CMNT.

Kid is playing well for their Reserves team (U21) according to their website. Heerenveen now is on top of the league. The way I see it, he'll either get a chance next season at Heerenveen (who'll get a new trainer) or maybe a nice loan to a Jupiler League team (D2).

I can’t wait to see him play in the Toulon Tournament. I hope all Canada’s weapons will be there! That roster better be the best we have not some bs MLS  Academy token roster. We have a great chance to showcase our talent to Europe. It’s gonna open more doors for Canadian players if we do well in tournaments like these.

He's doing great. Honestly, CPL could very well end up saving the careers of many  talented young players like him, give them a chance to show what they can do when no one else is willing to.

Yes watching him play so far he has been one of the most promising looking young players in the CPL. Still find it strange that after looking like he was doing really well with the Heerenveen reserves he suddenly left and came back to play with Sigma in League 1 Ontario last summer in 2018. Oh well Heerenveen’s loss is Forge FC’s and the CPL’s gain the kid can definitely play from the looks of it so far.
