So Ben Paton and Theo Corbeanu currently play at the same level as Liam Miller?  Partially rhetorical question. 

I guess at the moment and for the last 3 weeks. Liam is leaving on loan soon. Ben only seems to play with the U23 team, where as Corbeanu seems to get training reps with the first team. 

Ben likely needs to make the most of this year as his contract is up in june.

Watched the first half and was focusing on Eustaquio. He's such an efficient player.  Very comfortable on the ball and great distributor.  In the starting lineup, he'st t listed as the right mid but he basically plays the Michael Bradley role when the other team is attacking, sitting in front of the back four.  Since I bought up Bradley, Eustaquio's passing is night and day better than MB and his defensive positioning is also better.  

When his team regains position, he'll sometimes drift back between tihe CB's to receive the ball and start the attack out from the back.  He doesn't look physically imposing or even solid like a Piette but he isn't afraid to get stuck in.  He sees the field extremely well and he knows where he's going to pass the ball as it's coming to him.

He'll be a fantastic addition to the national team. Canada's probably a decent back four away from a seriously competitive CONCACAF qualifier.

Also, I don't speak Portuguese but the announcer and colour guy was talking up Eustaquio a lot during the half

Sounds like he is the regista that no Canadian national team has ever had.
