Under-20 international jets in for Liverpool trial after World Cup triumph - report

By Matt Farr

Liverpool have handed Honduras youngster Wesly Decas an opportunity to impress on trial with the club, according to a report.

Honduran local news outlet Diez claim that Decas, 17, will spend the next week training with the Liverpool squad at their Melwood base camp.

Decas has starred for the Honduras Under-20s recently and impressed enough to earn himself a trial.

Honduras achieved qualification for the Under-20 World Cup in South Korea in the recent CONCACAF tournament, where they lost to USA in the final on penalties.

Decas played five of the six games, but only played a cameo role in the one game his team lost.

Decas now has the opportunity to earn himself a more permanent stay in Merseyside, where he will be tested in the U19 and U23 sides.

He currently plays for minnows Atletico Independiente in the second tier of the Honduran football league.

Decas graduated from the Pumas academy before moving to top flight outfit Montagua. But after being stuck in the reserves, he later made the move to Atletico Independiente.

Football Insider verdict

Decas has certainly made an impression on the international stage with the Honduras youth side, and Liverpool are confident that they may have found a player with excellent potential. Players from such regions of the world and at such a young age can often be a significant gamble from clubs, but Liverpool can draw hope from the fact that several Honduran-born talents have gone on to make big impressions in the Premier League – like Wilson Palacios and Maynor Figueroa. Decas is still miles adrift of the top level but it’s a massive opportunity for him to make an impression at a huge club.
