Shades of Maradona and Messi

[VIDEO PICK] The Houston Dynamo's Bryan Salazar is a special player. He signed a homegrown contract with the MLS club after impressing in pre-season scrimmages between the first team and academy team. He played for the Dynamo academy team in the under-19 division at the Dallas Cup, where he scored a goal in the final against eventual champion IF Brommapojkarna of Sweden that has shades of the great goals Diego Maradona and Lionel Messi have scored, starting out near the same part of the field.

    too bad the FIFA rules don't apply in the US because Houston could sell this player to Europe and make a ton of money for their club and reinvest in and develop 100 more players like this...

    Wow... Maradona... Messi??? Not trying to knock this kid. But seriously... The last defender hacks at his leg... the second to last defender if you even want to call him a defender watches him pass by and just lazily jogs behind. But good for him because headlines like this could get him noticed ... just like Freddie...

    jajaja que ven estos tarados! que tratan de comparan maniobras tecnicas con circunstancias completamente diferentes. Es esta pobreza futbolistica con que aun vivimos, la que causan estos atrevimientos, que hacen tanto dano a nuestra juventud,los que saben de futbol, enfocan el futbol por el futbol en SI, no venden humo.Hay que respetar a nuestra juventud,y complementarlos en su medida,hacerlos mas grandes de lo que son es lo mismo que ignorarlos,hay muchos profecionales que llegan a primera con muchas deficiencias!!!,inchados por gente ignorante como este? hojala,la perseverancia y la consistencia de este pibe-jugador, lo lleve lejos.

    Please, soccer America? This is absurd, most Soccer phenomenas peak or illustrate awesome characteristics at 16 or 17, maradona, pele, beckenbauer, cruyff, giggs, messi, all showed amazing potential against world class players not against Some unknown Swedish team.

    You must be joking! This kind of praise for a totally mediocre goal is why the best players in the country are not noticed and don't rise to the national team. The same group of players get all the attention all of the time. The so called "best" do not necessarily make the "best" team. Lesson could be learned from hockey's U.S. team in 1980.

    What an idiotic article. Messi and Maradona??? You are out of your mind. Pure ignorance.

    And please stop poaching Hispanics. Use your own players.
