US U-23 defender Greg Garza is on trial with Mexican side Club Tijuana. Garza has been in Traffic Sports limboland since leaving Portuguese second division club Estoril earlier this year. According to the Ives link, he was recommended to Club Tijuana by midfielder and fellow U-23/U-20 camp teammate from earlier this month Joe Corona.
Sticking with the youth theme, Michael Hoyos recently told MLSsoccer.com is still open to playing for the US. Hoyos was born in California, but moved to Argentina when he was 15-years-old. The 20-year-old forward currently plays for Estudiantes de La Plata in Argentina and recently played for Argentina’s youth team at the Pan American Games.
Some of you might have noticed that Carlos Bocanegra did not play this weekend for Rangers. Captain America picked up a slight hamstring tear in a recent practice and is expected to miss at least two weeks.
And finally, thanks to Todd for sending this in, but here is a video interview with Robbie Findley as he talks about missing Thanksgiving and his time so far with Nottingham Forest.
