Andy Najar of D.C. United is one of the brightest prospects in North American football, and at 18-years-old has the world at his feet. The winger was named as the MLS Rookie of the Year for 2010, and spoke exclusively with Goal.com.
Although born in Choluteca in Honduras, the starlet had the chance to represent the United States at international level, but has instead chosen the country of his birth.
"[Playing for America] never crossed my mind. I had my answer, my dream was to play for my little country," he stated.
Despite not yet being selected for Luis Fernando Suarez's team, the teenager is eyeing the World Cup in 2014, and feels his nation can qualify for the tournament in Brazil.
"[Getting to Brazil 2014] depends on the players, they have to give [it] their best. It makes things better when they are together, we can not depend on individuals. If we do everything together, we can do it," he claimed confidently.
At club level the wide man has looked at home in the MLS, but has his eye on a move to Europe and one Spanish giant in particular.
"I love Spain, I've always liked Real Madrid," he concluded.
The Central American has a bright future ahead of him and it should not be long before his international and club dreams become a reality.
