Orlando, FL – The Disney Soccer Showcase is back this year gathering the best youth soccer players from across the country along with the top scouts from top colleges and pro soccer clubs. The event will take place at the ESPN World Wide Sports Complex in Disney, a four day event between December 27 to December 31 full of intense soccer games, training and scouting. The organizing sports company Ideasport is brining top scouts and recruiters from European clubs and academies.
One of the best known scouts who has confirmed attendance is Victor Da Costa Mendoza. Da Costa Mendoza is known for recruiting some of the best youth talent for the under club for FC Barcelona. Under clubs are the youth academies for top soccer clubs such as FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, and AC Milan. Elite players such as Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have gone through these under clubs which are only suitable for young players that demonstrate talent.
Da Costa Mendoza hopes to recruit one or two American youth players to take to Europe for formation.
“ESPN and Disney have created a formidable partnership to attract the best youth players from across the country, so it makes sense to be there and hope to find a young athlete with the potential to be great,” confirmed Victor.
Da Costa Mendoza recently held trainings for FC Barcelona (Spain) and River Plate (Argentina) two of the most accomplished soccer clubs in their respective continents. He holds a UEFA Pro A license which accredits him to train any top club. Da Costa Mendoza’s soccer strategies and methodologies are used by the Spaniard Soccer Federation, the Bolivian National Team and various first division clubs across the world.
