Sounds like a good buy for 4M. Even if he doesn't ever make staring XI we can probably sell him for a profit.

I'm interested in Adryan, he sounds quite good and I think Ronaldinho has spoken very highly of him. He's also realistic considering our good relations with Flamengo and this deal involving youth. Maybe a quality back up for Ganso?

Boca Junior's Barcelona target Sergio Araujo brings to mind a young Diego Forlan

For the vast majority of the football world, Wednesday night's Argentine reserve clash between Boca Juniors and Independiente would have passed completely unnoticed; but for one player at least there was extra incentive to shine. Sergio Araujo of Boca knew that Barcelona 'super-scout' Albert Valentin was in attendance to see what he could do on the field, even though bitter rivals have a first option on the 19-year-old.

Barely 19 and yet to stake a claim for a regular place in the Xeneixe first team, yet in the sights of two of the world's biggest football institutions: is this youngster the real deal? Goal..com takes a closer look at the promising striker...

So what’s his record like?

So far, he can boast 8 goals in 24 career appearances. At first glance, a 1 in 3 scoring record isn’t bad but he’s actually better than that. Of those games, he’s got one goal in nine games for Boca, but you can forgive him given he only started three of those. His real goal-scoring exploits have come at youth levels, both for Boca and at international youth level. Barcelona watched him in the reserves last night but he was a peripheral figure as Independiente won 1-0, Cristian Báez with the decisive strike.

Who does he play like?

It’s hard to compare him to anyone really, he is six foot tall and of normal build. His real strength is his quick feet, he will pull a trick to get a yard on a defender and then shoot. He is more likely to create a goal from nothing than be a poacher-style centre-forward. He has the potential to become a similar sort of player to Diego Forlan, assured on the ball and with an unerring eye for goal- but there are no further obvious comparisons.

This spring he played in the prodigious Bellinzona tournament in Switzerland against some of the best youth sides in the world and clearly impressed the hordes of onlooking scouts. His success in the Under-17 tournaments he has played at international level will have first alerted European scouts.

So why hasn’t he featured much this season?

A good question. He had a disappointing tournament in the South American Under-20 Championships at the start of 2011, but then again so did Argentina, finishing third behind neighbours Brazil and Uruguay. New Boca manager Julio Cesar Falcioni has only used him on one occasion, as a sub whilst 2-0 down at home to Olimpo, preferring the ever-willing but never-scoring Pablo Mouche.

Are there any doubts over his ability?

He’s certainly shown buckets of ability when given the chance, but players that have shone on the Under-17 circuit have sometimes failed to convert that promise into a real career; Brazillians Lulinha and Kerlon spring to mind from recent years. He’s shown enough promise to convince Real Madrid to purchase a first option on him a few years back though.

And what does he have to say about everything?

He’s not huge on media, but of the Madrid situation he said "It is true that they have that option and I'm flattered, but first I want to show with Boca that I have the ability to play for Madrid." He’s a big family man and after his first ever Boca goal vs Arsenal de Sarandí he said “I would like to dedicate it to my parents, who always support me. Poor them, they didn’t come to the stadium, because when they don’t watch me play, I score goals.”

Perhaps Sergio and Boca Juniors will be hoping that his parents stay well away from La Bombonera in the future.

Erick Estefano Torres

Quote:
Helping to put Mexican club fooball ont he map was the emergence of Javier Hernández ho moved from Guadalajara to Manchester United. With Hernández taking the Premier League and Champions League by storm in his debut season, the young Mexican striker looks to be bargain of the season for a fee of around £10 million. Looking to replace those large boots of 22 year-old Chicharito is teenage strike sensation Erick Estefano Torres, known as 'El Cubo'.

At just 18 years-old, Torres who is playing in only his first full season since being promoted from the youth academy has struck 6 goals in his first 11 games, helping Guadalajara to second in the Mexican Primera División.

Having been capped at Under-17 level by Mexico, Torres is widely considered one of the country's finest young talents. With excellent positioning and finishing ability, Torres could well find himself playing in Europe in the near future such is his potential and promise he holds.

Natural comparisons have been made to Hernández due to their similar playing style, size and rapid success success months after making their debut. The last Chivas youngster to hold such an impressive goal per games ratio was Hernández who scored 21 goals in 28 games for Guadalajara in his last season. Torres who was captain of the Chivas Under-17 team which managed to reach the Copa Bicentenario championship game in 2010 and was a star performer in Mexico's U-17 team. If Torres can continue to develop and gain the necessary experience, he may soon be playing his trade in Europe, with Manchester United already alerted to his talents.

Scouts have already started to arrive at the Estadio Omnilife to monitor the young Mexican's progress and will have been impressed after Torres' performance in the El Súper Clásico where he scored in a 3-0 victory América and his recent brace against Querétaro. At just 18 years-old Torres does not seem phased by the physical requirements of the Mexican league and has good upper body strength and is good in the air.
Bit premature IMO,but seems promising






currently 7 in 13
6-12 in league
1-1 in cup

love the commentators

Return of the poacher

Reminds me more of pippo

Stefan de vrij, Feyenoord: RB, could play CB, he's tall, strong and has a great spirit for a youngster. 188cm 1992.

Leroy Fer, Feyenoord ; called " the bouncer", CM/DM. 189cm ( woop) 1990

Wijnaldum, Feyenoord; winger, AM, second forward, a la Dinho. 172cm 1990.

Granit Xhaka, Basel: midfielder, AM/CM, 183 cm 1992

Mario Fernandes, Gremio: CB/RB 189 cm 1990: really, really like him altough i havent followed him recently. But he's fast, strong, has good anticpiation. Reminds me of a thiago silva wr to explosivity.

Roly BonevaciaCM/DM and Bruno Indi RB, respectively ajax and feyenoord... (indi is a freaking beast)

Euro U21 - Euroscout: Xherdan Shaqiri

Two of Europe's finest teenage playmakers donned the number ten shirts as Switzerland took on Denmark in the European Under-21 Championship on Saturday night, but it was Xherdan Shaqiri rather than Christian Eriksen who dazzled in Denmark

Quote:
While no football match can be reduced entirely to a single individual contest, the fixture in Aalborg was depicted as a battle between the two playmakers, both of whom travelled to the World Cup finals last summer with their respective countries.

It was a battle that Shaqiri won comfortably. Born in Kosovo but representing Switzerland having moved to Basel as a child, the 19-year-old enhanced his already impressive reputation with a performance of real class in a 1-0 victory for his side.

His winning goal after 48 minutes was a work of art. Shaqiri channelled Lionel Messi as he collected the ball in the centre of the pitch some 40 yards from goal, drove past a succession of red shirts and picked his spot in the far corner. It set a daunting aesthetic standard for the goal of the tournament competition.

The FC Basel star has already been likened to Romanian great Gheorghe Hagi, and though it is an intimidating comparison, it is justified. Like the man nicknamed the Maradona of the Carpathians, Shaqiri has a stocky build and a left foot that veers between paintbrush and scalpel.

Never afraid to take on a shot from long range, though on Saturday's evidence his finishing needs some work in that regard, Shaqiri also possesses a capability for the unexpected: a back-heeled pass here, a drag-back and flick there.

Though his passing can be refined and he remains somewhat selfish in possession, Saturday's display only confirmed we are witnessing the evolution of a major European talent.

Key moments

3' Shaqiri collects possession and dinks a wonderful pass over the top of the Denmark defence for Innocent Emeghara, who sees his shot saved.

31' The playmaker receives a square pass and his excellent first touch sees him spin into space before he drags a shot wide of the post from 20 yards.

45' He shows his intent once again from range when making space 20 yards from goal and curling a fine effort wide of the upright.

48' Shaqiri scores a wonder goal when slipping away from numerous Denmark players and driving into the box before firing back across Mikkel Andersen and in.

79' The teenager succeeds where opposite number Eriksen failed as he produces a Zidane turn to sneak away from his marker.

Player ratings

Creativity: 8/10

Passing: 8/10

Shooting: 7/10

Technique: 9/10

Vision: 8/10

Approximate value: £10 million.

I saw him under the South American U/17-tournament in Ecuador in March and Andrigo was one of Brazil's worst players. He was one of the players, I was looking forward to see, but he really disappointed me. He really looked lost.
To his defence, it did seem like he was played out of position. Andrigo played centrally, and he was obviously lacking a lot from a physical point of view. To me, he seems like more of a winger. He was also the youngest player in the squad and was also one of the most hyped up players before the tournament (although, he has been hyped up for many years now), which might also have had an influence on his performances.
Unfortunately, his abysmal display in that tournament cost him his place in the squad that will participate in U/17 World Cup in Mexico next week.
However, Andrigo is definitely a talented player, but he needs to improve his physical and mental strength as well as his dribbling skills. He has the speed and agility already, but his touches and dribbling often lets him down.

Didn't you read my post? I wrote that Andrigo wasn't even called up, which, primarily, is due to his abysmal display in Ecuador in March.

Breathtaking? Which tournament are you referring to?

watched yesterday a short part of France - argentina ( U17 WC)

3-0 for the frenchies in the first half, their attack trio was outstanding..they made fun of of very defender with skills, killing passes etc..

I was very impressed and I'll surely watch their next games in the tournament...

This Argentina-side is a joke - especially their defence. Absolutely no tactical awareness. They seem completely clueless and so does their coach and they were also abysmal (defensively) back in March during the tournament in Ecuador.
However, Lucas Ocampos and Brian Ferreira are good players. Was looking forward to seeing Leandro Paredes again, but he wasn't selected because of injury.

I agree with you with regard to the French players. Yaisien, Benzia and Haller are very talented. I liked Calvet, Mendy and Nangis too.

Brazil are playing their first group match tonight against Denmark. Look out for Adryan (whom I've mentioned before in this thread), Lucas Piazon, Hernani and Guilherme.
