Anyone know if Emilio Estevez has left Ourense CF? He was previously listed as #20 on their rosters, but their latest instagram post  doesn't show him and shows another player wearing #20. He was last listed on their posts on March 14

Don't think this is the place for that anymore he's not able to play for Canada, nor can he since he's played for Taiwan multiple times.

True, I forgot he got capped by them.

Although with the new FIFA rules that came out in January, I think he could still switch to Canada. Players can now switch if they competed in qualifying matches before they turned 21. (Munir El Haddadi just did that switching from Spain to Morrocco despite playing a euro qualifying game for Spain). He probably wouldn't get a callup from Canada anyways though

Marcelo Flores plays 26 minutes for Arsenal U18 in a 2-2 draw, all goals scored before in came in.

Just a quick question is he a starter on this U18 team? Or does he often come in off the bench ? I keep hearing how much of a talent he is , therefore, I would expect he is an everyday starter with the U18 at least.

in late 2020 he started 6 of 9 games with 3 goals, this was his first appearance in 2021, maybe an injury?

Turkey

Besiktas is currently up 3-0 with Atiba Hutchinson providing all 3 assists.  Came off in the 86th minute.

Larin playing the full 90 minutes.

 

Germany

Scott Kennedy with the start at LCB for Jahn Regensburg against Werder Bremen in the DFB Pokal.  Currently down 1-0 with about 25 minutes to play.

Kennedy played 90 plus added on as they fell 0-1 to Bremen. 

They seemed to be in a three-man back, him on the left. The goal was a long diagonal pass that was well controlled by Osako the Japaneses striker, who split the defense: but the central and right defender, not Scott. 

I am not sure but he may have been pushed forward into the midfield in the latter part, I don't have time to go back and watch in detail. In any case, he is a strong and capable defender and I'm proud to see his development.

In fact I only saw it was on flipping channels and caught the last 10 minutes, very direct football. Then went back as I have the replay option, and watched the goal. Jahn could have got one, but it was an attack without great sophistication or danger. Still, this experience vs. a Bundesliga side has to be great for them, despite Werder being rather poor this year.
