Humberto Flores Ortega Soccer Star and Goalkeeper!

Here is something else you may not know about Humberto. He debutted as a soccer pro at the age of 15. He was signed with America and played his first match for thme at the Azteca Stadium in Mexico City. He played against a Russian Club and they scored twice so that America were 2/0 down. Then Humberto made a miraculous save to thunderous applause at 2/2. America scored again and the final score was 3/2.
Angel Papadopoulos was the chief coach at this time. Arlindo and Baba who was a great friend of Pele played on the America team at this time.
It was a monumental debut and catapulted the young Humberto into the sporting spotlight.Needless to say Humberto has a wealth of soccer knowledge to share as well as well as his wisdom on tennis.
If you want to bring your team south, Humberto will work with you and hone your skills in a great location with a knowledgeable energetic and fun soccer pro!
