SoccerViza Pro Combine Attendee Signs for Top League in Portugal

July 26, 2019

 

Millions of children worldwide dream of playing their favorite sport for a professional team, but only few prevail. Soccer, the most popular sport in the world, is a language of its own and no matter where you are on Earth, if you know someone that has passion for playing the game, they’ll tell you that playing professionally is or was a goal of theirs.  

 

How many people try to break into the professional sports world but can’t? How many players are given the opportunity to go on trial with a professional team? Although the numbers are endless, there's a teenager who’s been called upon – Miguel Bustos.  

 

Born in Colombia on May 7, 2000, Miguel Angel Bustos, grew up in a low-income neighborhood in Medellin. His mother, Catalina, immigrated to the United States in 2007 leaving Bustos with his father and grandmother. 

 

“In Colombia I played soccer every day,” Bustos said. “After school, recess, and weekends. We had to play with whatever we found. Cans, water bottles, anything.” 

 

A year and a half after she left, Bustos’ mother decided to bring him to the ‘land of the free’ so they could be together once again and live a better life in the United States.
