One Mystery Trialist Identified - Andrew Vanzie

Dave's Note: bumped to frontpage for trialist discussion.

One of the unfamiliar faces at Sounders Training belongs to one of the newest Reggae Boyz. The articles linked below claim that 21-year-old center midfielder Andrew Vanzie of Jamaican top-side Portmore United FC (currently 5 points clear at the top of the table) left last Tuesday for a four-week trial with Seattle Sounders FC. A comparison of his facebook photo to the training photos show that he is definitely one of the players at Sounders training.

Vanzie received his first (and only) cap for Jamaica in September in a 5-2 loss in to Ecuador in Ecuador. He has also represented Jamaica at the U20 and U23 levels. Some sites seem to list him as a defender. However, it appears he plays center-mid for Portmore United. The Jamaican Football Federation link below describes him as "a lynch pin in Portmore United’s midfield". He lists Cristiano Ronaldo (and only Cristiano Ronaldo) under "Favorite Athletes" on his Facebook page.
