Shaq Moore’s club status was listed as unattached on the recently released U.S. U-20 Men’s National Team roster for the upcoming World Cup, but the 18-year-old defender has now found himself a home.
Moore announced on Saturday that he has signed a contract to join Spanish side Huracan. Founded in 2011, Huracan currently plays in the Spanish third division, but is nearing an appearance in the league’s upcoming promotion playoffs.
Prior to his signing, Moore had been training with Huracan, as the club waited to receive the 18-year-old’s international transfer certificate.
Hailing from Powder Springs, Georgia, Moore had previously featured for the FC Dallas U-18s and has been a frequent call-up for the U.S. U-20, U-18 and U-17 Men’s National Teams.
Moore and the U.S. U-20’s will kick off the U-20 World Cup on May 30 against Myanmar before taking on New Zealand and Ukraine on June 2 and 5, respectively, to conclude the group stage.
What do you think of Moore’s signing? How will the defender fare in Spain?
