Portugal soccer opportunities for our 2015 campers

Teenage sensation, Nathaniel Becker, heads to Portugal where he is set to tryout with Sporting clube de Portugal (formerly Sporting Lisbon) U-16 academy team. Sporting is arguably the best professional soccer club in Portugal and one of the top professional soccer clubs in all of Europe.  
Luis Boa Morte, started his career at Sporting Lisbon in Portugal (alongside superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, Nani, just to name a few). Luis then moved on to sign for Arsenal FC in 1997 before featuring for Fulham F.C. and West Ham United F.C. in the English Premier League.
Nathaniel attended our 2015 ID Soccer Summer camp in Fairfax which was led by former Portugal National team player, Luis Boa Morte.
It was there that Nathaniel showed his quality, professionalism and determination, which earned him the once in a lifetime opportunity (where he will train, play and potentially sign for one of the biggest clubs in Europe).
Nathaniel, who is from Springfield Virginia, started training privately with coach Fabien Lewis at the age of 10 while playing for Burke Athletic Club. He then moved on to play for Southwestern Youth Association (SYA) and currently attends Paul IV High School where he plays varsity soccer.
Also off to Portugal for tryouts is Tyler St Louis (who was spotted at the 2015 ID Soccer Camp in Upper Marlboro, Maryland). Tyler, originally from Atlanta GA, will train and tryout for the 1st team of Vitória Setúbal FC. Vitória now compete in the Portuguese 2nd division (after being recently relegated from 1st division in May 2015).
Advance Soccer Development remain committed to helping all players see their dream become a reality.
