[USL PRO 2014 COUNTDOWN] The Dayton Dutch Lions have signed three Brazilians -- defender Matheus and forwards Jackson Beckham and Guilherme -- with European experience for the 2014 USL PRO season.

Matheus played two games for Dutch club VVV in 2012-13. Dayton head coach Sid van Druenen will help the Lions with his physical presence and technical ability.
 
Jackson Beckham, whose full name Jackson Beckham Diego Socrates da Silva de Jesus was given by his father in recognition of players he enjoyed watching, was in Fiorentina's youth system and on Chelsea's radar as recently as a year ago.

"Beckham is a very technical player that can play on the wing and attacking midfielder,” van Druenen said. “Despite his young age he brings three years of experience at the highest European level at ACF Fiorentina in Italy and I expect him to become an important part of our offensive strategies this season."
 
Guilherme is a 23-year-old forward whose career included a stint with Metalurg Zaporizhya in Ukraine.
 
"Guilherme is a very strong and technical target striker that fits perfectly in our playing style,” van Druenen said. “He is one of the many options we will have to play up top, giving us the possibility to change things around and bring up the competitive level at training."
