Future Watch: Cristian Casseres Jr. Soccer Cards, New York Red BullsMLS side New York Red Bulls are known for being willing to play young players and develop them. Among those who were given quality minutes at a very young age are super talents Tyler Adams and Caden Clark.

So, it is no surprise to see the Red Bulls give significant playing time over the past two seasons to the now 20-year old midfielder Cristian Casseres Jr. The Venezuelan made 19 appearances and 14 starts in the 2020 MLS regular season and tallied two goals and three assists. Casseres also had three goals and four assists in 23 games in 2019.

Casseres is a defensive midfielder who can get forward to support the attack. He is smart positionally and tracks back to help the defense well. He also reads the game nicely. You get that sense of his soccer smarts during a match against Montreal in September. Casseres was well up in the attack on a play and pulled back towards the back post on a cross from the other side of the pitch. That gave him space to gather a possible header away from goal but towards him. That is exactly what happened. Casseres was open to receive that ball and went to the endline. His cross was touched on to another teammate for an easy goal.

Casseres got his professional start in his home country at the age of 16 and played for the U-17 and U-20 youth teams. He’s begun to establish himself in the National team as well. Casseres has played in all four CONMEBOL World Cup qualifiers this year, and started the last three of those games.

Casseres is part of the 2020 Topps MLS release, and will certainly be part of many more sets in the future.
