LooneyToonArmy Posted July 20, 2009 Share Posted July 20, 2009 12-year-old Mauricio Baldivieso given professional debut in Bolivia From correspondents in La Paz, Bolivia July 20, 2009 Bolivian top flight football side Aurora have handed a debut to 12-year-old Mauricio Baldivieso in a 1-0 loss to FC la Paz. Mauricio came on six minutes before halftime, sent into the fray by coach Julio Cesar Baldivieso, who happens to be youngster's father. Mauricio had a somewhat brutal introduction to the professional game as he picked up an ankle knock within five minutes from ferocious tackle by La Paz's Henry Alaca. But to the delight of Aurora's fans, who gave him an ovation, the youngster was able to resume after treatment pitchside. "I am proud - he has a lot of talent," said his father. http://www.foxsports.com.au/story/0,...-23210,00.html Marca is saying that he started crying after that brutal challenge. im wondering if theres an age limit in Europe for players? 12 is just incredibly young to make your pro football debut (amongst other things)!
