Juan Miguel Aguilera
|Juan Miguel Aguilera|
Juan Miguel Aguilera was always a good player, creative and industrious, though was always outshone for the national team by other players. His record of winning two Atlantian Oceania Cup of Association Football tournaments with Starblaydia, as well as an Under-21 World Cup proves his worth, but when players such as Raphael Delgado, Itechton Matranga and Menecrates are competing for the same position over time, it's easy to be crowded out by the superstars.
As a nineteen year old, he made three appearances in the U21WC 14 campaign, though did not get on the scoresheet. HE went to four Under-21 World Cups, beginning as a fifteen year old in the 12th edition and scoring against Fmjphoenix in the Second Round as Starblaydia went on to take Third Place. He never won himself a starting position in any of his attempts, however, generally taking the Number 17 shirt.
Three AOCAF Cups, Two Medals
He was selected in the 8th AOCAF Cup squad, making a single appearance as they swept to the title in Druida. Juan Miguel's one international goal then came against the pirates of Oceaice during Qualifiers for World Cup 23 in a 2-0 win, with Surachai Buathiang scoring the other. He would make four more appearances during the campgain. Four years later he was placed back in the AOCAF squad and made just one appearance in Cockbill Street as Starblaydia were eliminated by Hypocria in the Quarter-Final. AOCAF Cup 10 came around in Fmjphoenix and this time he took the Number 23 shirt, appearing just once as Starblaydia made their way to a record-equalling fourth regional title.
Though not the most skilled, or hardest-working, he was a key player for his club side, Vecchio Victors, and remains one of the most decorated Starblaydi players with an Under-21 and two AOCAF Cup titles to his name.
