Coming from Malta, former Eighties snooker ace Tony Drago is arguably the biggest sporting star to emerge from the Mediterranean island.
Beerman, 18, would love to make his mark in the game and believes he has the drive and determination to make it big in football.
He said: “Not many people know about the island, but we’ve got huge talent.
“We’ve got the likes of Tony Drago, but I haven’t played snooker, I’m not a fan, and also Andre Schembri and Michael Mifsud.
“Michael played for Coventry and Andre’s playing in Portugal just now in the top league. We have a few good shooters as well.
“There’s massive sports talent in the country. We’re really small but all we need is the exposure and the mentality from the kids to keep on developing and progressing forward.

“It was different class making my debut. It has always been my dream since a young age to become a professional footballer.”
Boss Pedro Caixinha was without six regulars including captain Lee Wallace for the clash with Kilmarnock and took the unusual step of naming his side the day before the game.
Beerman had no idea he was going to get the nod but was thrilled Caixinha had faith in him.
He said: “I found out I was playing in the same way everyone did, when the manager announced it.
“Lee Wallace really encouraged me and gave me tips for the game, to keep focused and make sure I do my best and play for the badge.
