Today the New York Cosmos announced the signing of 23 year old national player Andres Flores.

“I’m really excited to be joining the Cosmos,” an excited Flores explained. “It’s a championship-winning squad with a lot of quality players, but I’m here to try and help the team and ready for a new challenge.”

The young Central American forward enjoyed some time on the Argentinean River Plate youth program from 2006 thru 2008 before moving to Salvadroean first division side Isidro Metapan. He has been dubbed the “Salvadorean Messi” in his native El Salvador.

Since 2008 he had made 31 appearances for the senior El Salvadorean national team. The young forward brings much needed speed to the NY Cosmos as well as huge potential in the NASL.

Flores has also spent some time via loan, with the Dutch side Viborg FF.

  1. I like the acquisition. There are many good young players within the CONCACAF countries that have or will see international competition for their national teams. It seems like this strategy for NASL clubs scouting these countries and bringing them to the US just before they may hit the MLS radar. These players are more than likely ready and excited to play and live in the US or Canada.
    MLS clubs are still looking to sign some bigger name and talented players from Europe still who already come with a name.
    NASL clubs bringing these young players in where they can make a name for themselves

  2. Hey there Steve – its definitely a good trend that the NASL is setting. For the Cosmos, its a positive move with respect to the speed that this youngster brings to the club. Is it possible that he might even get to play this Sunday against Ottawa? Who knows!
