PLAYER UPDATE: Josue Soto Called Up To Queretaro II
SoccerViza alum Josue Soto has impressed the Queretaro U-20 bosses in pre-season and has earned a call up to Queretaro II for the Copa Ramon Barreda in Colima, Mexico. Soto, a native of Riverside, California, was scouted by Queretaro at SoccerViza's Dallas, 2015 combine.

After enjoying a strong pre-season thus far, Josue Soto has been called up from Queretaro’s U-20 roster to Queretaro II, the reserve team for Queretaro FC.

Josue learned of the news on Thursday morning, and immediately had his first training session with the club’s second team. They departed this morning for Colima, the beautiful west coast state just south of Guadalajara, where they will participate in the seventh annual La Copa Ramon Barreda.

The Ramon Barreda Cup is hosted annually by Mexican second division club Loros Universidad, and will also be attended by Chivas Rayados, the reserve team of legendary C.D. Guadalajara, and fellow second division contenders Inter Playa del Carmen.

A strong performance from Soto over the weekend could see him completing the move up to Queretaro II, which would put him within reach of seeing the first team this year. At 19-years old, Soto is in prime position to seize this opportunity and make the most of it, becoming a young, solid contributor to the team that would allow the coaching staff to see him as an player to build around in the future.

Josue was discovered at SoccerViza’s Dallas, 2015 combine by Queretaro scout Mauricio Pedroza. Mauricio will also be attending SoccerViza’s upcoming San Diego combine in November, looking for more players to take to Los Gallos Blancos. After the positive impact that Josue has had in his short time with the club, Queretaro are keen to find more talented players from the Southern California region.
