Belgian Pro League team, Standard Liege, recently announced on their website that they have signed Jorge Ruvalcaba on loan from Mexican side, UNAM – Los Pumas for the season.
Although born in Rialto, California, the 22 year old winger has represented Mexico on their U21 team, but is still eligible to represented the country of his birth.
Ruvalcaba had a break-out campaign for Los Pumas last season, playing in 40 games while scoring on five occasions and assisting on another four goals. Despite his credentials, according to Standard Liege, the youngster was signed to play for Standard Liege 16 FC, also known as the SL Reserves. The team competes in the Challenger Pro League, the second team in the Belgian soccer pyramid.
Standard Liege II will next be in action on Sunday night when they travel to take on SK Beveren. The Mexican-American will hope to make his Belgian debut this weekend in Flanders.
