Brazil is the latest international scene for Per Van Hansen. 
This country with all their talents, is a paradise for soccer coaches, agents and soccer fans in general.

 Matches at Maracana, visits to the former powerhouse Flamengo and the academy of star player Zico, together with daily training at Talent Academy Carioca in Rio de Janeiro is an exciting experience.
It have also meant a lot of useful contacts, which will be important, when inexpensive talent is needed.
In the near future we will see more talents from the academies in Fortaleza at the big stages around Europe.

Besides having the best players in the world, Brazil also provide a fantastic every day life, with marvelous nature, happy people and a fantastic cuisine.

Oceania is also an important part of Per Van Hansens life. His soccer experiences at Tahiti, Moorea, Cook Islands and Fiji, have been extraordinary and great fun.

But it is the nature that really springs in to mind, when Oceania is mentioned. Fx is diving in the South Pacific in a class of its own.

The warm Polynesians, with their music and dance, will always be a nice memory.
