    I included Amanda because he's still playing NCAA.
    I see the other 9 as better prospects than Flores.  He's got a lot of hype but not sure it'll translate.
    (cut to him winning a starting role with Arsenal before he's 20)
    Edit: if I'm being honest, I probably have him rated so low as a way to insulate myself when he suits up for Mexico.  Less heartbreak.

    Amanda sticks out as being a '98 among all those under 20s.
    Quick question are you ranking Flores last because it's unlikely he plays for us or do you see the other 9 as better prospects?

    Manjrekar James Should be at the Gold Cup. For me this where he’s gonna shine and some MLS/More sable European option should pick him up if he plays well. He’s big, he’s doesn’t get hurt, he’s played in big games for Canada before and played well. 
    this Gold Cup should be for the B team and for Canadian players who need to showcase their talent.

    SOCCER
    Jules-Anthony Vilsaint will represent the East at the Danone Cup
      SOCCER. Jules-Anthony Vilsaint, a young rising soccer star from Laval, has been selected to represent the Eastern Team in the Canadian Danone Nations Cup final to be held at Percival Molson Stadium on June 27.

    Published on June 10, 2015     Jules-Anthony, who wears the colors of the Saint-Laurent U13 AA team, will be making his second appearance and his last chance to represent Canada at the world final.
    Last year, Jules-Anthony had some exhilarating moments to say the least, taking part in the national final of the 15th edition of the Danone Nations Cup, held at Stade Saputo, in Montreal.
    “I will give everything to come out with the victory against the West team. I don't want to lose like last year, ”insists the one who will play as a midfielder.
    “I can't wait to play at the Montreal Alouettes stadium. It will be the first time for me, ”he adds.
    Steps
    The young athlete from Sainte-Dorothée is officially one of the 11 players of the Eastern Team, which brings together the best football fans between 10 and 12 years old from Quebec and Ontario.
    Chosen among 5000 players, he was able to go through all the stages of the various selection camps to find himself in the formation of the East.
    “It's not a big surprise to have been selected. I was confident, because I dominated in all facets of the game, ”humbly mentions the former Delta color-bearer.
    To Morocco
    The winning team will represent Canada at the international final of the Nations Cup scheduled for the fall in Morocco.
    Jules-Anthony would love to show them his talent by playing against some of the best soccer teams from the 32 participating countries.
    “I will give my all to represent Canada in Morocco. I want to know the best game of my career. I hope to beat the West, ”concludes the sixth grade student at Saint-François Elementary School.

    Never seen it in Premiership or MLS games I've watched, none of the Bayern or Lille matches either. But then again for the majority of games I watch it figures, Newcastle don't have a coach up with current trends, infact he doesn't believe in tactics. Straight quote.

    He doesn't come around much anymore.  Someone has to fill the role of stubborn and nostly nonsensical Dutchman.  (Those are big wooden shoes to fill though)

    I just love the fact we have young players who are willing to try these things and take people on.   Obviously in big games against tough opponents you need to be disciplined and pick and choose your moments.  This game though we were in complete control and it was a great chance to work on offensive creativity and letting young players figure out what they are capable of.  Some of Davies's dribbling into the middle would have been inadvisable against Mexico or the US too but this was his chance having been freed from LB to play around with what his true offensive capabilities are.
    I get that playing conservative and passing the ball backward  every time you are covered and then cycling the ball around the back 4 8 times is a Canadian tradition.  I've dragged friends and family to a lot of barely watchable Canadian games over the years, live and on TV, and I'm starting to think soon with highlights like this I'll be able to coax them back again 😉

    I think most of us are just excited for another legit prospect and unlike any we have: that combination of size, speed, and skill on the ball is intriguing.  Obviously he has a long way to go and it's hard to gauge his ceiling yet.  But I haven't seen too many debuts of young Canadians who could put instantly put that much pressure on even a weakened Bermuda defense.
