Players from 17 states at Alianza finals

Fifty-six players from 17 states who emerged from tryouts in 12 U.S. cities are competing at the Powerade Sueno Alianza National Showcase in Miami in front of scouts from Mexico and the USA.

More than 9,000 players took part in the free Sueno Alianza tryouts in the program that was launched in 2008 to expose young Latino talent to professional scouts.

Last year, 33 players received a total of 116 invitations from the participating professional vlubs and federations. Previous participants included Northern Californians Edwin Lara, currently with Pachuca, who played for Mexico at the 2015 U-17 World Cup, and Jonathan Gonzalez (Monterrey), who plays for the U.S. U-18 national team.

More than 30 scouts from Liga MX, USL and MLS clubs and the Mexico national team program are attending the Oct. 19-Oct. 22 event.

The best represented states are Texas with 14 players, followed by California (10).
