Each year Golazo seeks to identify the best young talents in Argentina and so the #GOLAZO50 is a countdown of the fifty best players under the age of 23.
Previous winners Paulo Dybala, Leandro Paredes and Giovani Lo Celso are all now firmly in Argentina’s senior plans but while they shine in Europe some of those listed in the 50 over the past three years haven’t been quite so successful.
Cutting to 50 is always an almost impossible task and there are always those that miss out.
As some means of explanation – obviously potential is a key factor but so too is experience and so credit is given to those players who have stepped up and made an impact at first team level. Further points are awarded for those that have perhaps performed well for the national team at youth level and then obviously if a player has moved to abroad or been selected for the Argentina squad then that too helps the cause.
Another 50 will be coming before the end of the year but all the previous editions are available here….
