Making Waves in Europe
Italian footballer Marco Verratti has more accolades to his name than he has years. (He was only 14 when he watched his National Team and future teammates, Gli Azzurri, claim the 2006 World Cup.) Born and bred in Pescara, this gifted playmaker debuted in the Pescara First Team in the 2008-2009 season at the age of 16. He has since moved from his hometown to the world football stage. In July 2012 Verratti left Italy and moved to Paris. In the French league, he has continued to impress as a top player for Paris Saint-Germain. With his unmistakable skills and the pace at which he is developing, he’ll be a front figure for Italian football (and beyond) soon enough.
