What it's like to make your debut in Spain's third division
SIA Academy is an international soccer academy in Spain known for its great opportunities. No soccer school has its own club in the Spanish Third Division, Soccer Inter-Action does. As a result, many players come to SIA Academy for opportunities.
Such is the case of Carlos Romagosa. The young goalkeeper, born in Boca Raton, Florida, came to Soccer Inter-Action with the goal of becoming a professional soccer player in Spain. His good work has earned him a place at UD SIA Benigànim, Soccer Inter-Action's own team in the Spanish Third Division.

Playing against a First Division team

A gigantic feat in a great match against a team that a few years earlier played against Chelsea and Juventus in the Champions League.
