Palmeiras product Julio Cesar da Silva to audition for FCE By Steven Sandor Posted on July 30, 2012 1 0 392 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter FC Edmonton will have a look at Brazilian striker Julio Cesar da Silva. He is officially with the club as a trialist, even though the transfer window has closed. The team scrambled to get the paperwork on the forward in on Friday before the deadline, so it would have the ability to make him an official member of the squad if the coach Harry Sinkgraven and his staff are impressed by what the forward shows at training. The scouting report is that the 22-year-old, six-foot-two striker can use both feet; can he help boost what has been the NASL’s least-productive offence? The move for the Brazilian comes nearly a month after he was supposed to arrive in Edmonton for a trial. But delays in paperwork pushed this deal right to the edge of the transfer window’s closure. Julio Cesar da Silva played with the junior wing of the famed Brazilian club, Palmeiras. He had been most recently on loan to Camboriu, a lower-division side in Brazil. FCE’s first team resumes training on Wednesday. The team remains eight points behind the Carolina RailHawks for the final playoff spot in the NASL, with 10 games to play. FCE will play seven of those at home, beginning with Sunday’s match against the Minnesota Stars.
