Good story of this young kid moving to Real Madrid. Only 11 years old.

Nice story, hopefully the young man can progress with some of the best facilities/coaches in the world and get a chance to play for Real Madrid. Most youth players never make it to the first team but it would be cool to see him and Lederman in 7 or 8 years from now both break in with their respective clubs.

This was the last entry on the BBC Transfer Gossip page today. They reference the article in the NBC story (linked by EKneezy above), but the vid on the NBC page actually has me actually excited about this kid. Genuine confidence on the ball, and the cajones to take on several players.

Best of luck Josh! Keep working hard and stay humble and good things are coming your way.

Great news that we have kids going into the Real academy, but lets not get ahead of ourselves. He is only 11...

Agreed. His footwork is straight silly for an 11y.o. though. Hope this year goes well for him and Madrid invites him to return again.

Should we call him up before or after the 2014 world cup?

Absolutely. Lets get this kid and Lederman for the next WCQ. Cap tie these kids before they hit high school. I mean, they are probably already better than Zusi right? Kidding. USA USA USA USA USA
If you don't love it, leave it, USA #1

Pretty cool, gotta think there will be more and more stories like this. the US is being heavily scouted by all the big clubs now.

This is the benefit to youtube and facebook et al. European clubs can see highlights of young players without spending money on for a scout to travel somewhere having never seen the kid play

Yep and this just shows the growth of American soccer. More abd more kids will play overseas making our teams more technical and awesome. Just a real great story about the kid. Also said Lederman plays with the under 14 team.

Anyone else sort of put-off by the excess of skilled dribbling moves he was doing? Love seeing him use them when taking on defenders, but some of them seemed superfluous. Like Balotelli's back-heel attempt last summer that got him taken off.

Also, well done to the kid yadda yadda keep growin etc. etc.

Don't mean to seem like an ass but was that your kid or perhaps little brothers team he picked apart there? Do you hate fun? Sorry but this is such an American attitude. Here everything is about sportsmanship. We worry way too much about hurting someone's feelings on the sports field. He's having fun and telling a kid not to use his skills is stunting his growth and confidence as a player. He works hard to learn how to do them and then we have people sitting around and calling him a showoff or a jerk. He worked hard and is trying to get noticed by scouts and deserves to show what he can do.

It was actually my team he picked apart. Off to my room to cry my eyes out THANKS A LOT.
