[AMERICANS ABROAD] Roman Martin has been invited to join the Clube Pequeninos do Jockey of Sao Paulo, Brazil, the club known for developing players like Kaka,Ze Roberto and Julio Baptista. Martin, a product of the La Jolla Nomads, is the first non-Brazilian to be invited to play with the club in its 38-year history.
 
After competing in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy Showcase in Dallas in June, Martin flew to Finland to join Clube Pequeninos do Jockey's team of 15- and 16-year-old players that began their European campaign in the U-17/18 division of the Helsinki Cup, where they lost in the semifinals in a shootout.

Martin scored six goals on the tour.

“Roman’s play this summer was spectacular," said Odir Martins, Clube Pequeninos do Jockey’s U-16 coach. "He is a highly skilled player with great vision.  For him to travel half way around the world and step into a new team and help us win at this level says a lot about the caliber of player that he is.”

    I just saw another article also about Roman saying he and his team won gold in the Dana Cup and bronze in the Gothia World Cup. http://www.soccernation.com/san-diego-youth-roman-martin-shines-on-europes-soccer-fields--cms-4643

    Good to see the recognition --Roman Martin is one of those cerative midfielders that doesn't come along very often.
