Raúl De Tomás has made soccer history last weekend by being the first Dominican to play for Real Madrid. The 19-year-old striker is a dual citizen of the Dominican Republic and Spain, and was born in Madrid. While there are countless Dominicans playing in Major League baseball, there are far fewer on soccer teams around the globe.

"A born-finisher with a great eye for goal, he is comfortable in any situation and lethal in both dead-ball situations and one-on-ones," writes the Real Madrid website about the young athlete. "Raúl also stands out for his mobility and the ease with which he can pass a player. The striker arrived at Real Madrid in 2004, from San Roque. Since then, he has left his mark with goals at every level he has competed at. His pace and technique make him a very complete striker."

Remezcla notes that Tomás could revolutionize the Dominican soccer team -- similar to what Dwight Yorke did for the Trinidadian team -- but the young athlete is committed to playing for Spain. In fact, Tomás has played for Spain on U- 17 and U- 19 levels so it does not seem like he will be leaving the European nation's team any time soon.
