All indications are that San Antonio FC have signed Portugese youth international, Flávio Silva. Silva, 19, is a center-forward who signed with Benfica B, the Portuguese Primeira Liga side, S.L. Benfica's, reserve team, early last year. He spent most of 2015 with Sporting Covilhã in the Portuguese LigaPro, the 2nd division.
Before Benfica, he was with S.C.U. Torreense where he made 11 appearances and scored 8 goals. He made three appearances with Benfica B during the 2014-2015 season, but hasn't seen much play time since. He did play during the 2015 UEFA U-19 Championship qualification round, scoring a single goal in both a 6-1 win over Turkey and again against Georgia in a 3-2 win for Portugal. Portugal did not qualify for the final tournament.
He is a young striker who should be a good signing for SAFC in their inaugural season.
We'll keep you posted on any more player signing rumors as we hear of them.
