Club: Hoffenheim Position: Striker Born: 11 January 2002
Enjoying a breakout 18-goal season with the Rockdale Suns under-18s team as a 16-year-old, the intelligent, hard-working striker was called into the Australian under-17s squad for the AFC U-16 Championship, where he fired 5 goals in 5 games, including the winner against Indonesia, to qualify Australia for the 2019 Fifa U-17 World Cup
Described by Australia’s under-17s coach, Trevor Morgan, as possessing “excellent personal discipline”, Botic spent a week on trial with Manchester United before catching the eye of Bundesliga club Hoffenheim, who signed the youngster in August 2019 for their development squad
“Noah leads the others in setting high standards in activities”, said Morgan. “Highly competitive, he reads the game well and is especially dangerous …

#10 Johan Mina (Ecuador)
Club: Emelec Position: Forward Born: 15 May 2002
Because of a contract dispute Mina has not played any club football in nearly two years, having fallen out with Emelec over his refusal to commit his long-term future to the club, but he has continued to represent his country and was top scorer at the South American Under-17 Championships in Peru in March and April. 
He is still not under contract, and is expected to move abroad once he turns 18 in February - his agent, Klinton Tenorio, revealed this year that Chelsea are “one of the teams who are constantly asking about him”. 
A fine dribbler with a strong, left-footed shot, he scored 40 goals in 26 games for the under-14s in 2016.
Mina’s father, Joaquin, won a league title with Emelec in 1993Jaime F. Macias

#10 Zito Luvumbo (Angola)
Club: C.D. Primeiro de Agosto Position; Winger Born: 9 March 2002
African football pundits believe Angola has a budding golden generation at youth level, and Luvumbo is leading the way. 
The 17-year-old has already become a household name back home, after his performances with his club, Primeiro de Agosto, and the under-17 national team. 
Luvumbo was particularly impressive in the Angolan Cup final last year, a match he won single-handedly, scoring one goal and winning a penalty
Luvumbo also caught the eye in regional and continental international tournaments
Manchester United reportedly made an offer for the dynamic winger in February and West Ham United were also interested in his services but the work permit issue has proved a hindrance so far. 
In September, Luvumbo was called up with the senior national team…

FIFA.com - 24 Oct 2019 Malick Daf is the coach of Senegal’s U-17 teamThe Africans are set to make their tournament debut at Brazil 2019Daf has already experienced a youth-level World Cup, at New Zealand 2015 No other continent has performed better than Africa at the FIFA U-17 World Cup™. In fact, in 17 editions of the illustrious event, African nations have lifted the trophy on no fewer than 7 occasions (Nigeria 5 times, Ghana 2). But Senegal, traditional continental heavyweights, have never played at the tournament before. Until now.
“This is a major event,” Senegal coach Malick Daf told FIFA.com. “We’ve put in a lot of hard work to get to where we are now. It was a long and difficult road, but we managed to qualify, and we can’t hide what a pleasure it is to be here.”
Indeed, the 2019 U-17 World Cup qualifying campaign was certainly not a walk in the park for Daf’s men. While their results at the CAF Africa Cup of N…

LOST SOULS: Storie e miti del basket di strada

Lo chiamano il veleno nero della Cina. È la spessa patina di polvere di carbone che ricopre la provincia settentrionale dello Shanxi. Lì si estrae il combustibile che alimenta la crescita industriale del Paese, che al tempo stesso ne viene minato. Lì pulsa il cuore dell’industria mineraria cinese. Ed è tra quelle montagne che si trova Linfen, città avvolta dal fumo e, cifre alla mano, luogo più inquinato nella terra delle lanterne rosse.

Ecco l’inferno in cui precipita God Shammgod, All-American alla LaSalle Academy di Manhattan - dove faceva ombra a Ron Artest e a Karim Shabazz - e futura stella al Providence College oltre che seconda scelta (pick 17) dei Washington Wizards al Draft NBA 1997. Niente di blasfemo, nessun refuso. Quella point guard di 1,82 x 74 kg non solo giocava da Dio. Ci si chiamava pure, e non per vezzo.

Nato il 29 aprile 1976 a …
