At just 23 years old, Sam Vines has already established himself as a solid left-back in the world of football. It was during his time with Pride SC that Vines really started to make an impression on teams around Europe and North America.

He signed for Antwerp in 2017 and has since made over 40 appearances for them, impressing greatly along the way. With potential at such a young age, there's no telling what else Vines could achieve in his career ahead. A product of the Charlotte Independence youth academy, Sam Vines made his professional debut in 2017 and has since enjoyed a successful international career for the United States.

A versatile attacking midfielder with an eye for goal, Vines is a mainstay in the Independence midfield and was instrumental in their run to the CONCACAF Gold Cup final last year. An exciting prospect with plenty of potential, expect Vines to continue his development at Colorado Rapids before potentially moving on to bigger things internationally down the line.
