Football is sometimes called the heart and soul of Honduras, but they didn’t really have many good footballers in their history. This may change with the next generation of Honduran players leaded by Brayan Velasquez. He is considered to be one of the biggest talents in Honduras at the moment. He represented “Los Catrachos” at the FIFA U-17 World Cup, in which young “La Bicolor” made it to the quarter finals. Velasquez was a real star of the tournament – he played in every Honduras match, scored 2 goals, added one assist and wowed experts from all around the world with his fantastic dribbling and technical skills.
“I hope to always work hard and with great humility in my career, because it will take me to get big things.”
Football Talent Scout potential rating:
