1/26/2010: Three Trialists In Camp, More Info On Acosta and Bredun, Two More On The Way.

Here is a picture of Hugo Acosta, the 20 year old Venezuelan trialist/guest camp player the Crew have in camp. The Crew also have a 27 year old Ukranian defender in camp named Yevhen Bredun. As well as former OSU and FC Dallas keeper Ray Burse.

The Columbus Crew started camp today with all their healthy charges except for five missing players: four to national team commitments including Robbie Rogers(USA), Eddie Gaven(USA), Chad Marshall(USA), and Emilio Renteria (Venezuela); and one because of late arrival in Guillermo Barros Schelotto. Other Crew regulars such as O'Rourke, Carroll, Hejduk, and Greunebaum were in town, but were either out of action or limited to action because of injuries.

The Crew looked to balance that out today by inviting some trialists/guest players to the first day of camp. According to Shawn Mitchell at the Dispatch, this included FC Dallas and OSU former keeper Ray Burse, who I have personally liked in the games I have seen him play with FC Dallas. Also, in camp were 27 year old Ukranian defender Yevhen Bredun[wiki page] (who saw some time with Shakhtar Donetsk, Arsenal Kyiv, and Metalurh Zaporizhya; Has 77 Caps in Ukraine Premier League and 8 Ukrainian U-21 Caps, most recently played this year for FC Gomel of Belarus) and 20 year old striker Hugo Acosta (a Venezuelan who showed talent in the Venezuelan leagues and played recently in Syria).

Here is a picture of Yevhen Bredun with his most recent time FC Gomel, hmm kind of looks a bit like a young Warzycha.

Acosta is pretty interesting as he was able to score 8 goals at 17 in the Venezuelan second division, for Deportivo Tachira F.C., and also played in the first division before attracting the interest of some dudes with oil money in Syria. Here is a video of him I think scoring, with him also falling down a lot, and doing random plays and another website with more info on the young Acosta:

The Crew also look to bring in a Polish player and an American player, but will not release their identities until they make sure they have discoveries on both.
