One of my favourite players- Giovani Dos Santos is in the running for FIFA youth player of the World Cup. Dos Santos is already showing signs of brilliance – where he is the undisputed leader in an impressive Mexican midfield which boasts veteran playmakers like Blanco and Gerardo Torrado. A few more years and this lad will be world class.
This is what Christian Karambeu along with Jomo Sono – part of FIFA’s Technical Study Group (TSG) had to say:
“Dos Santos is a brilliant player who has a very good passing game and, despite his youth, has already played in big clubs like Barcelona. He has matured a lot and has a great future.”
Others in the running are Germany’s Thomas Mueller who has already had 3 goals and 4 assists and Abedi Pele’s son
Anthony Andre Ayew with his 85% accuracy rate a part of Ghana’s success. Mueller was sorely missed in the semi-final against Spain where he could have posed problems to Joan Capdevila running down the right.
