[AMERICANS ABROAD]Julio Cesar Morales, who moved from San Jose to Chivas de Guadalajara in 2011, scored a hat trick to lead Mexico's under-20 national team to a 9-0 win over a Riverside County all-star team in Riverside, Calif. Uvaldo Luna, a Houston product in the Tigres youth system, had the eighth goal for the Tri.

Morales played for Santa Clara Sporting and was the San Jose Mercury News Boys Soccer Player of the Year for two years in a row at Willow Glen High School.

FC Dallas goalie Richard Sanchez was also a member of the touring U-20s, who completed their trip with two wins (5-0 and 3-1) over the USL Los Angeles Blues.

A nucleus of Mexico's U-20s played on Mexico's 2011 U-17 World Cup championship championship team.

    Well our football will pay dearly. While Sunil is looking at Germany for below average players the Mexican are getting good players...

    Let me translate for the rather boring, repetitive Ric for those that may be new to the postings - In other words, the entirety of US Soccer are racist, biased idiots and only a hispanic can play soccer, only hispanics can coach soccer, only by virtue of one's ethnicity can one 'know' soccer (even if you didn't even play the game which Ric really didn't). The facts are that the entire US Soccer system is flooded with hispanics and hispanic coaches - my guess is the U14's are 75% hispanic with a hispanic coach. Does every soccer assoc. miss players? Of course. But this boring divisive racist rants does nothing but separate. Ric has lost his way.

    my brother was about to go try out at necaxa but he got the chance to go to college so he decide to stay and finish school...he was part of calsouth odp for 2 years and part of region 4 team but after high school everything turn very hard specially about playing soccer cause at mls teams are not enough space for so many players in soccer disperse so much because latino players are not going to the best iniversities due to grades and economic issue...which is my brothers case..

    Ms. Amy Villa hits the nail on the head. For most kids leaving high school soccer, college soccer is the next step in this country -- there just aren't enough professional slots. And for latino players HS graduation, grades and money are often a challenge. Realistically, this is the problem that needs to be addressed. In Calif and some other parts of the country, JC soccer has some very good programs. Finding ways to help young Hispanic players get into those programs, and get their academic acts together, may be one practical way to address problem.

    Luna is not an Academy player.
