Onyeka Gamero will be kickin’ it in Spain…
Barcelona has signed the 17-year-old half-Spanish American soccer player to its women’s B team, calling her one of the most promising prospects in women’s soccer in the United States.
Gamero, who had previously committed to playing college soccer at Stanford, has played for the youth squads of the U.S. national team and was with Beach FC in California.
She was most recently in action for the U.S. Under-20 team at the Concacaf U20 Women’s Championship, where she scored her team’s lone goal in a final loss to Mexico.
Gamero also represented the U.S. at the FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup last year.
Gamero will reside in Barcelona’s youth academy.
