MLS: New England receives Colombian midfielder Pareja
New England has received its fifth foreign allocation, Colombian midfielder Oscar Pareja.
"Oscar is an extremely skillful and creative player who will create scoring opportunities for himself and his teammates," said New England coach Thomas Rongen. "We are fortunate to get such a talented midfielder in the prime of his career."
Pareja has been a member of the Colombian national team pool and has starred at Colombian First Division clubs Deportivo Cali and Independiente Medellin. He also lead the youth team of America Cali to the 1987 national youth title.
Pareja, whose uncle, aunt and cousins live in Massachusetts, may make his MLS debut June 7 when the Revolution plays the L.A. Galaxy in Pasadena, Calif.
