The Boston City FC Brasil academy has unearthed a potentially talented player at its headquarters in in Manhuaçu – from Framingham, Massachusetts.

Mark Jacob Martins is a 13-year-old left-footed midfielder who was born in the United States and moved to Brasil with his family five years ago.

He was selected by the Boston City FC Brasil coaches to join the club’s recently opened academy, which will focus on the Under 14, 15, 17 and 20 age groups, when they conducted numerous evaluations of youth players from several states.

“The coaches were unaware that Mark was from Framingham until they began to collect his information once he had been selected,” explained Boston City FC President and Head Coach Palhinha.  “It is ironic that thousands of miles away, we have unearthed a local American player!”
