I can go by experience, in one case anyway. This particular individual played soccer from a very young age at a local soccer club. She stood out from about the age of 8 and constantly practiced. The team moved up to a rep level, competing against local area soccer teams (travel teams, you might say). Again, due to the love of soccer, training and commitment all the way, she stood out and was asked to play for a Provincial team, where they travelled across Canada. She again stood out among the rest, scoring the winning goal to capture the Junior Canadian championship. Playing at Showcase tournaments and US tournaments, scouts had they're eye on her and she was asked to play for Team Canada, the youngest player on the team right now. Committed parents certainly help as well, as they were always involved and urged her on, financially and emotionally. This is a long hard process and even then, you have to be more than exceptional to actually make it

If the child shows that he has the game vision and is talented with ball control, He should practice skills, ball mastery, feints etc..everyday for at least one hour, join the best team in thecity, play up, play only soccer winter and summer, move to academy in Europe (ideally France or Holland) at 14 and be very lucky. The alternative is to stick to north America and hope for a US college scholarship while playing in the PDL...that's where the scouts look. Still involves alot of luck.
