The minor tournaments are usually the best scenario for the most pleasant appearances. With all the cameras on top, only a few are able to reissue the prestige with which they are preceded. Although some countries will have sensitive casualties such as Endrick in Brazil and Garnacho in Argentina, they will be fearsome teams. A look at the footballers who will fill our eyes from this Thursday in the South American Sub-20, in Colombia.
Luis Guilherme (Brazil)
They call him the new Rivaldo, although he has said that his greatest idol is Lionel Messi. He’s left-handed, but he drives and converts with his right as if he wasn’t. The Palmeiras midfielder, who will turn 17 in the first week of February, possesses unusual speed. He distributes the game, but he is also a rival stacker.
Victor Roque (Brazil)
Owner of a devilish break, Vitor Roque is the most dangerous attacker of the ‘Canarinha’. Not only because he destroys waists, but because the Atlético Paranaense striker has gunpowder in his boots. He hits it with power, both in the middle and in the long distance. He will largely fill in for Endrick.
Nicolas Paz (Argentina)
A wheel with wear and elegance, two qualities that do not always go hand in hand. He is a great enabler, but also has an unimaginable amount of resources in one against one. He was born in Spain, but defends the country of his father: former defender Pablo Paz. He is one of the most prominent in the Real Madrid Castilla squad. He was called up by Scaloni in March 2022 for the Qualifiers, but he stayed waiting his turn. With such a level it won’t be long before he debuts with the older Albiceleste.
Maximo Perrone (Argentina)
Formed in the youth ranks of Vélez Sarsfield, Perrone is a midfielder with an exquisite left foot. He empowers his teammates with three-finger passes, and hits the farthest stick from the keeper. He could not go unnoticed by the powerful in Europe: after the South American he will go to Manchester City to play with the best in the world.
Alexei Rojas (Colombia)
Alexei Rojas Fedorushchenko is a citizen of the world: he was born in the United Kingdom, his mother is Russian and his father is Colombian. No wonder then that he has guarded the goal for England’s under-15s, Russia’s under-17s and now the coffee under-20s. He belongs to Arsenal of the Premier League. He is a great penalty saver. And he wins all the balls from above.
Juan David Fuentes (Colombia)
He was born in Colombia, but has lived in Spain since he was four years old. Her father is from the mother country and her mother from the country of Gabriel García Márquez. He belongs to the Barcelona subsidiary, where he stands out for his short strike, his left-footed shot and his ability to always find his teammates more freely. He’s not big, but it’s hard to get the ball from him.
Alvaro Rodriguez (Uruguay)
It’s a tower. A striker who, despite his size, is one of those dribblers. Although thin, his game is similar to that of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. He is indisputably the most lethal player in Uruguay. Not for nothing is he one of the most prominent at Real Madrid Castilla. He usually throws himself down the left sector. From there he stacks up rivals.
Patrickson Delgado (Ecuador)
As if Moisés Caicedo was not enough, the Ecuadorians are shaping their midfielder of the future: Patrickson Delgado, a modern midfielder who was already called up to the Qualifiers in 2022. He has been with Jon Ajax for two seasons, the club’s subsidiary team. He was formed in the minor divisions of Independiente del Valle.
Dario Osorio (Chile)
While some fight in the subsidiaries of the fiercest clubs in Europe, Osorio has aroused the enthusiasm of Chileans, as he constantly plays in his local League for the University of Chile. He is unstoppable one on one and has a lot of goals. What is now required of a flyer.
