Not all twins are identical. The story starts as far back as U8 when the Curto boys started playing for the Albany Alleycats Soccer Club. They will be playing the upcoming season with the U18 Boys who are coached by Cesar Markovic. One of the boys Marco Curto saves the shots that his opponents take and Matteo Curto scores the goals against his opponents.
The boys have been selected to represent US Soccer Region 1 soccer which includes 13 states from NH to MD. Players are selected based on Technique, Tactics, Athletic Ability and Attitude during a selection process over months of training and games. The twins are the only players from the Capital District and 2 of the top 18 players in Region 1. The boys will be representing Region 1 ODP this December 3rd, 2015 – December 7th, 2015 in Lakewood Florida vs the 3 other regions in the country.
While the twins are very talented players they come from a soccer family. Their father Charlie Curto coached with the Alleycats and Siena College. They have an older brother Paolino Curto who also played for the club and now plays at Siena College in his sophomore season.
The club wishes the boys the best of luck on the field and off the field.
