The Bundesliga seems to be a source inagotable of young promises that despuntan and finish being important. Jadon Sancho, Kai Havertz, Eling Haaland, Achraf Hakimi or even the madridista Luka Jovic are some recent examples. But it seems that season to season arise new talents and this course one of the big disclosures of the league could finish being Matthew Hoppe.

The American forward of so alone 19 years arrived to the quarry of the Schalke 04 in 2019, but has not settled in the first team up to now. For the moment, in his few apparitions, the attacker had not showed big thing, further of some detail, but in his last party threw the house by the window. The perla finish with three goals in the meeting that confronted to the miners with the Hoffenheim and turned into the first American in marking three targets in the league germana.

Hoppe Was imparable in this corresponding crash to the Bundesliga and annotated his first 'hat-trick' with the T-shirt of the Germans. A performance tremenda for a young footballer that wants to be one of the disclosures of this campaign. It can that from now his name begin to listen a lot of more far of Germany, by what suits to explain of where arrived the North American to the Schalke.

Perhaps no many know that this youngster goleador landed in pertinent German earths of the Barça Academy of Arizona. There it was where the attacker was during a time learning all what could in the academy that the FC Barcelona has there. Perhaps anybody in the club thought that the Californian had potential to be important in Europe, since no did him any offer to arrive to the Masia.

Caden Clark, another so much for the Barça Academy

It is necessary to say that, as it aims 'Sportive World', is not the first time that to the Barcelona group escapes him a jewel of his academies in United States. Caden Clark, of alone 17 years, will play in the Network Bull Leipzig when it fulfil the majority of age, something that sucederá of face to summer. The one of Minnesota played also in the Barça Academy of Arizona before incorporating to the New York Network Bull.

Clark made in the MLS when turning into the first player of the history in marking at least a so much in his first two meetings. It will be necessary to see if the North American achieves to leave his footprint in the German league, as it is beginning to do Hoppe after his historical 'hat-trick' against the Hoffenheim, that promises to be the first of many.
