[VIDEO PICK] Want to know what it is like to chase the dream of playing pro soccer abroad? Follow the journey of Vincenzo Bernardo as he tries to make it in the Guatemalan Second Division with Deportivo Guastatoya in the premiere of this excellent You Tube documentary Jersey Goal Project produced by Guatemalan-based journalist and player representative Brent Latham ...

Bernardo, 22, is a product of the New York Red Bulls academy and New Jersey's St. Benedict's that produced such U.S. stars Tab Ramos, Claudio Reyna and Gregg Berhalter.

He moved to Italian club Napoli's reserve team program and later Nola in Serie D (fifth level of Italian soccer) and FC Hochst in Austria's third division. He returned home to play for the 2011 USL PRO runner-up Harrisburg City Islanders.

In his debut, Bernardo, who called it "a very humbling experience being able to travel around the world and experience different cultures and traditions," helped set up the late winner as Deportivo Guastatoya won its first game of the 2012 Torneo Apertura.
