[SUENO MLS 2008] Briant Reyes, a 16-year-old Salvadoran-American midfielder from Downey, Calif., was selected as the Winner of Sueno MLS 2008: The Dream Continues by Chivas USA, while 16-year-old Gabriel Funes, an Argentine-born forward from Arlington, Texas, was selected by FC Dallas in the culmination of the reality show televised on Univision's popular weekly sports show, Republica Deportiva.

Reyes, a junior at Downey High School, stood out from the thousands of aspiring young players who tried their luck at Sueno MLS in Los Angeles. Reyes has been invited to play for Chivas USA's U-16 team in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy.

The son of a professional Argentine soccer player, Funes shone in the Dallas competition. The lanky forward led Arlington High to a 19-1 record, scoring 35 goals this past season. He has been invited to form part of the FC Dallas Juniors, the club's newly created developmental elite team that will directly prepare players for the professional team.
