US Soccer Yanks Abroad – In Bolivia

For any American soccer player, playing abroad is always a career goal.  I never though that the Bolivian professional circuit would be such a destination.  I’d have to figure it ranks way, way down there in leagues to play in, not only is the level of play not as high, but the pay is low and sporadic – just ask the players from Bolivar.  Still, a perplexing bit of news is La Paz FC’s signing of Keli Zenoni(sic), a 23 year old from the Minnesota Thunder to reinforce their squad ahead of the Copa Libertadores..  The Thunder’s 2007 Roster lists no such player, but there is a profile of a Kyle Zenoni and more info about him in Wikipedia.  He’s travelled a bit, having played in Sweden and Ireland previously.
