Every young footballer dreams about being a professional player and it is not different in New Zealand. While some talented young players like Liberato Cacace and Sarpreet Singh are already playing professionally in Europe some others are still chasing this dream.
There are some players that choose to spend some years in the university to develop as a player and person while they chase their dreams of becoming a professional player. The biggest example is Joe Bell who played for Virginia Cavaliers (United States of America) from 2017 to 2019 before joining a professional club from Norway earlier this year. However, there is a young player from New Zealand that has chosen another path: Bradley Wilson.
Wilson is a young footballer who is going to spend his next four years studying and playing football at Doshisha University in Japan. The 18-year-old forward will now have a nice experience abroad after spending twelve years playing for Western Springs.
He also represented New Zealand in the last FIFA U-17 World Cup held in Brazil where he played two matches against Angola and Brazil. Oceania Football Center wish him good luck in Japan.
