Meet Alfred Koroma

Alfred Koroma is an interesting name from around these parts, he's from Dallas and just played in the U17 World Championships for the US. He's been a player for Solar-Chelsea here in the Metroplex for some time, but recently he played with the FCD Academy in the Generation adidas cup. Koroma's been in the US since he was 9, but as his playing for the US indicates, he is a US citizen.

Koroma's currently in Sweden on a trial with AIK and an interview with him as popped up on line (thanks to Clint Eastwood on bigsoccer). Let's just say you can clearly tell he's just a 17 year old kid, but he is an interesting prospect. I'd love to see FCD find a way to hold on to him, but since he's not really an Academy player that may not be possible.
