Ryan Babel: yet another Ajax youth talent

Ajax Amsterdam has been renowned for finding players from all over the world. This time they have found one right in Amsterdam: 18 year old Ryan Babel (2nd photo).

A right footed striker, 185cm tall with remarkable dribbling skills, he has been with the club since the age of 11 as have so many of Ajax Amsterdam’s prodigies. Babel particularly likes going past opponents, and was helped along by legend Marco van Basten in the youth squad.

A substitute in the Amstel Cup quarterfinal tonight Babel changed the game, helping to turn a 0-0 tussle into a 2-0 win in 5 minutes, scoring one of the goals with power and style. He did the same thing in injury time on a Jan. 23rd win over FC Utrecht.
