Brooks Lennon Asked To Play In 2013 Milk Cup With Liverpool FC
Earlier today Odeen Domingo, Arizona Republic, broke the news that Real Salt Lake U16 Academy player Brooks Lennon is expected to play with Liverpool FC in the 2013 Milk Cup. Yes, historic English club Liverpool.
Lennon has emerged as a top player at the Grande Sports Academy home of the Real Salt Lake Academy U18 & U16 teams. He led the U16 team in scoring, with 15 this season, and earned his first call up from U.S. Soccer in the process. In March, Lennon participated in a U-17 MNT camp and impressed the coaches enough to earn another call-up. In May he traveled to Azerbaijan and played in the Caspian Cup, scoring 7 goals in 3 games.
Lennon’s connection to Liverpool is from a trial he had earlier this year while on vacation in Europe.
Be sure to check out Odeen’s interview with Lennon. It has some great stuff in there. He is going to be a player all Arizona soccer fans should get familiar with.
