By Rubén Morales Iglesias: On Monday evening, 55 teenage football players gathered at the Football Federation of Belize (FFB) facilities in Belmopan for a three-day International Talent Identification Camp, organized by the Verdes FC, the FFB, and Italian Club Digiesse Praia Tortora. The camp got underway on Tuesday and closes on Thursday.

The program is the brainchild of Verdes which earlier established a collaboration agreement with the Italian club.

“Today marked the start of a new journey for some young Belizean boys,” the FFB said in a social media post.

The objective of the program is to expose Belize players to international trainers to better develop their football skills. At the same time, a number of players will be selected for a one-month training scholarship in Rome, Italy.

“We have partnered with the Verdes club and the Italian club and have selected 55 players from throughout the country,” FFB Technical Director Philip Marin told Breaking Belize News.

“They will be engaged in a three-day training camp at the Football Federation of Belize. After the three days the Digiesse Praia Tortora coaches will select three to five players that are outstanding. They will do one-month training in Rome, Italy in July and August.”

The Talent Identification Camp, which closes on Thursday, is being conducted by Italian coaches from Club Digiesse Praia Tortora.

The camp is for players ranging from 14 to 16 years of age. Several of the players already play for the Belize Junior National Teams.
