They arrived! This Monday, July 19, the Peruvian under-17 team will have its first microcycle, which will be led by the teacher Victor Reyes, and the great novelties are four young promises who have come from abroad to join the work of the ‘Blanquirrojita’.
It would be Gabriel Chávez, John Cortez, Sébastien Vinatea and Robin Ottosson, young soccer players who were contacted by the Peruvian Football Federation (FPF) for having Peruvian ancestry.
Chávez is a player for New York City in the United States, and he works as a central defender, but he can also play as a right back, being a versatile player in defensive zones.
John Cortez also plays in the central rear, but also accommodates himself in the positions of right back and central midfielder, in addition, he also plays in the New York Red Bulls of the North American country.
Sébastien Vinatea is a goalkeeper who plays in the U-17 category of As Saint-Lambert of Canada, and in his case, this goalkeeper has already had a history with the Peruvian team, since, in 2019, he was called to be part of the sub-15 of the national team.
Robin Ottosson is a footballer for the Malmo FF club in Sweden, and plays as an offensive midfielder, being the only one of the previous three who plays for a European club, so it is expected to be an interesting variant for the selection of the aforementioned category .
These footballers have already arrived in our country, and from this Monday, they will appear at the Videna facilities to begin the work of the Peruvian U-17 team that will take place from July 19 to 28.
