Major League Soccer's youth presence continues to soar with the league putting more emphasis on developing talent in the United States.
On Sunday, yet another bright young talent made his MLS debut and it was quite a memorable one for Atlanta United defender Caleb Wiley.
Yesterday marked a truly historic day for the teenager as he helped guide the Eastern Conference side to a 3-1 win over Sporting Kansas City.
Wiley capped the game off with a late goal and the Five Stripes have another quality defender following in the footsteps of Miles Robinson and George Bello, who was recently sold to German side Arminia Bielefeld.
“It’s definitely a dream come true,” Wiley said postgame. “I don’t score many goals that often, so when I do it’s definitely a speechless moment.
"When I saw it go into the back of the net, it was a huge moment for me. To do it in front of this huge crowd, in front of friends and family is something special.”
