    That should have read "Pele", not "Pel". I'm not sure what the problem is with the LNS program, but a lot of times the posts do not appear exactly as written.

    A note to parents... Be careful about these programs that "select" your child for these expensive trips. Yes, it's fun to travel, but it is not necessary to participate in these travel programs programs to improve the child's soccer skills. If you are going to have fun, I'd say great and enjoy the trip. If you are going because you think your child is one in a million and is the next Pel, then please think again. Remember... Pel grew up very poor and playing soccer barefoot in the dirt....and most of the time with a makeshift soccer ball. :-) Just don't get sucked into paying the big bucks. There are a ton of these programs out now that want parents to think their kid is the next great star and they want you to pay ($$) for it. I know what I'm talking about. Anyway, happy travels.

    Good luck. Like Raul, I like Manchester United and Christiano Ronaldo is one of my favorite players.
