Yea, ah picking him to be de next big thing to come through T&T.

Saw him since his days with Siparia Spurs, Shiva Boys and T&TEC.

Like de young man game.

Big Mac pick Kadeem Corbin, I going for Levi (501).

This youth should be drafted into de T&T senior team immediately, maybe Kadeem Corbin and Shannon "Rough Neck" Gomez to.

Kevon Goddard nice to.

This under 20 team have some talent.

Aikim Andrews and Neveal Hackshaw eh bad too.

Andre Fortune eh shine this year to much, I hardly hear anything from him, he eh making de last two games line up, unless he injured? Matthew Woo Ling too.

Johan Welch is a die hard keeper, wish he could play a lil basket ball though, could do with some height, but ah like de youth fight and determination. He have some work to do, but in time hopefully.

Ah hope Central FC spend some time and develop they 3 players on this squad, Dillon, Garcia and Javon Sample, lord knows we need some good keepers.

Actually, it's 4 players - Goddard is ours too.

Dillon has been around our first team for two years now and is maturing nicely. Goddard has played several games for Central over the last two years, as has Sample, who played several F.A.Trophy games for us. In my opinion, he is better than Welch (but then, I would say that!)
Levi is a very good prospect and he has the support of his parents, which is essential for such a talent at such a young age.

Garcia has big football dreams.
By Shaun Fuentes (TTFA)


He wears the number 11 shirt for the T&T men’s Under-20 team and perhaps he’s caught your attention in his recent appearances for this country at the Caribbean U-20 Championship.

To many, Levi Garcia looks an extremely bright prospect for the future. The 16 year old Central FC midfielder scored in T&T’s 1-1 draw with Guadeloupe at the Dwight Yorke Stadium two weeks ago and scouts from Europe are already keeping their eyes on the player during the current Caribbean Finals.

Garcia has the attributes of a ace attacking midfielder in the making—good vision and composure, strong on the ball and good passer, good use of both feet with a proper shot on goal. At this stage of his game, with the right exposure and development, he will only get better. He’s played in two of T&T’s Caribbean qualifying matches so far, linking up well with the likes of teammates Kadeem Corbin, Aikim Andrews, Akeem Garcia and Jabari Mitchell.

Garcia comes from a family of three brothers and two sisters and credits his 26 year old brother Daniel for pushing him to success.

“I have to credit Daniel. He’s always there for me. If I have to go training or to a game he will get the taxi or rent a car for me to get there. He pushes me all the time to do better,” Garcia says.

But it’s not just Daniel that keeps Levi going. When asked what inspires him daily to keep playing the game and stay driven, his immediate response was “Jesus first and everything else after.”

Levi’s favourite players are Brazilian star Neymar and local midfielder Ataulla Guerra and he follows Barcelona.

“I like Barcelona because of how they pass the ball. I like to look at how their players run off the ball, the crosses, their style and their work rate. That’s how I like to see football played,” he said.

Levi hails from Santa Flora and is a past member of Siparia Spurs, T&TEC and is also a student of Shiva Boys College. He has a goal set before him which is to end up at Barcelona some day.

“It’s important for my family that I keep playing the game and make something good of myself. I want to be successful and I want to keep playing. I see myself at Barcelona or another top club out there in five years time,” the versatile number 11 said.

“Qualifying for a World Cup is one of my other dreams either at U-20 or the senior level. We came close in 2013 with the U-17s but now it would be great if we can go a step more.”

Garcia and the T&T team will play in the Caribbean U-20 Final tomorrow from 7.30 pm at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Port-of-Spain before entering the Concacaf Final Round of World Cup qualifiers in Montego Bay in January. They are attempting to qualify for next year’s Fifa U-20 World Cup in New Zealand.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

Just returned from Trinidad and went to see the game against Curacao.

And I am not saying this because he is my cousin, but Levi will make T&T win back crowds.

He is a crowd pleaser, he is talented and composed and fast and strong, jeez, he's everything a football should have.

And he were the best on the field and the youngest.

He plays very mature for a kid.

He makes me proud. I still can't believe he has gotten so big, saw him about 4 years ago.

I hope he makes the T&T senior team, Yorke did it at 16, time to give Levi a chance.

He will be hoping to go to Europe soon, I think in January 2015, I did not discuss it with him as he was busy, a scouts from Spain and Holland were there in the crowds. I also met one from the MLS.

Will keep you guys posted.

His older brother Nathaniel is also very good to.

Thanks for the love guys.

Didn't realize that he could play for 3 teams.

U17, U20 & Senior Teams.

Lol.

These players young and have passion for the game. But they are making foolish decisions that loose them opportunity and cement bad habits/reputations. Fortunately there is still time to for them to come correct. If my memory serves me well, in 2008 Kevin Molino got dropped from the U-20 team because he opted to skip national training to captain Mucurapo to the intercol championship.

Its not 1973 anymore. Time to belly up and create conditions to make the PL a more desirable alternative for developing players.

I can't really measure him as a player until he has played against top level or quality opposition at club or International level. The Caribbean Oppposition he faced at the Caribbean Cup is not enough

It's worth remembering that these are young boys. They are being advised and encouraged by school coaches who may have known them for years, teachers, agents and other schoolkids, maybe even girlfriends.

It must be difficult for them and their parents to determine who is being honest and who has their best interests at heart.

Which is why a debate such as this and the one going on now on wired 868 is helpful.

Well, the shots in The Skinner Park portion is certainly of poor quality. It is very difficult to make out the players. I think he is  very good player who can became very special if he is developed right. The verdict is still out on him.
