DETERMINED teenager, Jaliel Braden Eddie, will jet off to Brazil to showcase his football skills while playing against some of the world’s best teams, in April. On a mission to raise enough funds for the trip, Jaliel, has been training hard while also networking to rake up the R22 000 he needs to pursue his soccer dreams.

His soccer journey started at the age of five, playing for Wailers FC U9 team. He wowed spectators with his talent and was the youngest boy on the team.

Jaliel left the Wailers FC and joined Bayview FC at the age of six, under the coaching of Mario Labuschagne, who still coaches him to date, in the U17 team.
