17 year old Striker who recently signed with Brazil giants Palmeiras. 

https://www.lance.com.br/palmeiras/contrata-atacante-com-passagem-pelo-futebol-canadense.html

This article states that he developed with Faly Acadmy in Vancouver (I've never heard of them before) and was with  Juazeiro FC before signing with Palmeiras. He's officially a member of their U-17 side and is recovering from a minor shoulder injury.

I can't find much on Juazeiro FC. They are either actually Juazeiro Social Clube from Bahia or some random amateur looking club that has a little less than a hundred and fifty followers on Instagram.

Interesting prospect playing in Brazil.

If that is the case, I won't be surprised if he does get capped by Brazil. I mean come on let's be honest here.

That first article you posted Vince doesn't  say he is actually Canadian. It says he lived in the US & Canada from 9 to 16 years old and has a "backround in Canadian football".

A name to follow but more questions must be asked.

Reading the article it says he's played for Faly for the past 4 years. To me it seems he's off to play in Brazil but ill assume his family is staying in Vancouver which would continue his connection with Canada. 

Thats a big jump.. I would compare it to like a 17 yr old signing with Club America or even Boca Juniors. Good for him

I dont know much about Faly Academy but I heard that their first season in VMSL u21 they kinda ran away with things. I thought I also read theyre trying to be involved in the BC1 league. I stand to be corrected on that one

Again, I hope you are joking?  I am not trying to be rude, but this take is hard to take serious.

17 year olds quite regularly play for the senior squads in the Campeonato Brasil Serie A and their State Leagues.  Tiago is likely very very far from that.  Superstar attackers like Rodrygo & Vinicius go to Europe around his age or soon after.  Those two Real Madrid superstars have a combined 4 caps for Brazil.  That is how difficult it is to break into the Brazilian squad.

People have been talking about Gabriel Veron from Palmeiras for years now as a future star for Brazil.  He plays the same position and is the same age as Tiago but with nearly 40 appearances for the Palmeiras senior team already.  And he has never even been close to being called for the Brazil senior team.

Board member Jordan mentioned in the abroad thread that he has a passport.

Apparently this kid is making an impact. A Palmeiras supporter was telling me he recently scored 2 goals for the U17 team and there is a buzz around him. What more is they refer to him as just "Canada". As most people know in Brazil your nickname becomes your name. So yes, we might have a player named... Canada. In this article he's referred to as Canada

Here is scoring some goals. Wearing 11

I've watched them train a lot at Empire. Very serious, very technical. They've even managed to earn a spot through BC Soccer in the traditional youth pyramids, unheard of before.
