Commerce City, CO (Sports Network) - The Colorado Rapids acquired forward
Charles Eloundou in a special MLS lottery on Friday, with the Cameroon
international joining the team on loan for the season.
The 18-year-old was signed by Major League Soccer last week on a one-year loan
with an option to buy from AS Fortuna in Cameroon.
Eloundou was made available through the special lottery on Friday, which was
won by the Rapids over Real Salt Lake and D.C. United.
"This is an exciting acquisition for the Rapids, getting a player who has
attracted attention from top clubs in Europe," said Rapids technical director
Paul Bravo. "He's got great pace, strength and skill, and at just 18 he's
already in the set up for the full national team of Cameroon. We're looking
forward to welcoming him into our squad."
Eloundou has played four times for Cameroon's national team and he joins the
Rapids after scoring nine goals in 20 matches for Unisport in the Cameroonian
