Luca Lewis (20) - GK - New York - 0.027

In December 2020, the New York Red Bulls have signed NYRB II goalkeeper Luca Lewis to an MLS contract, the club announced today. Lewis signed with Red Bulls II on September 22 after a full season with Torino FC Primavera in Italy.

“We’re pleased to add Luca to the First Team,” said Head of Sports Kevin Thelwell. “He’s a good young talent with a range of experiences that have helped him develop his game physically and mentally. We like what we’ve seen from him the last few months and think his game fits well with our style of play.”

Lewis, 19, made three starts for NYRB II to conclude the 2020 USL Championship season. The New York City native began his soccer career at the IMG Academy at 12, competing with the Under-13/14 team.

“Luca is a good young goalkeeper with a lot of qualities we like," said Head Coach Gerhard Struber. "He is big, athletic, and he understands the way we want to play. As a coaching staff, we look forward to working with him to continue his development.”  

Lewis spent two seasons at the IMG Academy and accumulated 35 appearances. Lewis then headed to Italy to play for Torino FC’s U-17 and U-19 teams, accruing 27 appearances and 14 clean sheets.

Ethereum Follow-Up

Until Eth2 launches, Ethereum remains energy intensive. It also has extremely high gas fees (like transaction fees) that get more expensive when the network is congested.

Ethereum started the week at 1,908$ and finished it at 2,427$.

New Player On Sorare To Watch

Castellanos scored in each of New York City's first 4 matches in the 2021 season, becoming only the fifth player in MLS history to do so. Shortly after this milestone, on May 13, 2021, Castellanos signed a new deal with NYCFC that would keep him contracted with the club through 2025.

Quote Of The Week

In Sorare, you can use cards to do a lot of things. Everything depends on the players you possess. Players like Vinicius can have very volatile prices. The real speculation happens with people who want to get margin.
