    I first saw him at U15 level. Powerful little fireplug with great speed and technique. World class potential for sure.




    He's just been awarded Goal of the tournament as well.

    I liked his work ethic as well. He was tracking back against Mexico a lot and also made some good tackles. Don't know if it was just an extra motivation playing in the final at home or if he always plays like this but it's a good attribute for a young (especially offensive) player.

    BTW, what do you think about Kaio Jorge?

    The pressing and work rate is part of his game I feel. We're seeing a lot of young wingers like that in football.


    Jorge is probably a tier below these guys talent wise. He looks to be a good player - and you never know with U17s, some of these players may not even turn pro so there's a chance Kaio could eclipse these seemingly more talented players in the future.

    2 goals and 1 assist in his second senior (Serie A) game apparently.

    Is Série A really that shit or are the talents actually good?
    Seems like a new 17-year old pops up every other week with a good performance.
