More Trialists In Camp

The Denver Post's Daniel Boniface tweeted some information about trialists in camp today:

Oscar Montoya (formerly of Abraham Lincoln HS in Denver) and Francisco Flores (Cruz Azul) were in on trial today.
Not much is known about Montoya but Flores is a Mexican right back who was signed by Cruz Azul in 2012 after playing for the Mexican U-17 team in the 2011 World Cup.  He hasn't gotten much first-team time (7 appearances at Cruz Azul) but he has continued in the Mexican National Team system, playing 11 times for the U-20 team including in CONCACAF U-20 World Cup qualifying and at the 2013 U-20 World Cup.  He addresses one of the thinnest areas of depth and would be a good young signing.

Boniface also tweeted that Eloundou is still stuck in Cameroon with visa issues but is expected to join camp soon.
