For a third year in a row, Golazo has sought to list the best 50 talents in Argentina and following on from previous winners Leandro Paredes and Paulo Dybala, a new number one has been crowned.
2018 was a disastrous year in many ways for Argentinian football but shoots of optimism began to come through post-World Cup and many of those new faces in the Albiceleste squad appear in this year’s countdown.
To be eligible for the list, you simply need to be born on or after January 1st 1995.
Cutting to 50 was an almost impossible task and if there is someone you think is missing then be sure that they would have been on the initial list of 150.
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.
It isn’t an exact science. You may not agree and if so please feel free to comment below.
Otherwise, enjoy. This is the Golazo 50….
Thanks to anyone who helped out with compiling the list but special thanks to Tom Robinson for his input and player profiles.
