It’s not just Lionel Messi.
Argentina is ahead of the 2022 World Cup final in Qatar. On the 19th, at 12:00 am (hereinafter referred to as Korean time), we will compete with France for the championship cup.
This tournament draws attention as Messi’s last World Cup. Messi has accomplished everything except winning the World Cup. Fans are very curious about whether they will reap the beauty of the last World Cup.
It is true that Messi occupies an absolute position in Argentina, but there are many players with excellent skills in Argentina besides Messi. It is full of talented players by position, such as Julian Alvarez, Nicolas Otamendi, and Rodrigo De Paul.
Among them, Enso Fernandez, who plays a central and defensive midfield role, is Argentina’s secret weapon. Fernandez was born in 2001 and moved to Benfica in Portugal this year after playing for River Plate in his home league since his youth days.
This year was the first time he was selected for the Argentine national team. Although he has little experience, he sewed a kettle with his skills.
The national team’s first goal came in the Qatar World Cup group stage match against Mexico. He shook the net with a fantastic right-footed kick. He has 1 goal and 1 assist in this tournament. 안전놀이터
Although he is 14 years younger than Messi, he is skilled at controlling the game in midfield. His skills are so good that he has a good ability to overcome opponent pressure, and he is also active as a playmaker with his passing and abundant activity.
After the World Cup, Fernandez’s ransom is rising day by day. Spanish media ‘Mundo Deportivo’ predicted on the 16th, “Several big clubs rushed to sign Fernandez. The transfer fee will be at least 100 million euros (approximately 140 billion won).”
Fernandez is a key player in the final against France. Argentina’s chances of winning will depend on how Fernandez plays in the air and defense against France, which has strong midfielders such as Antoine Griezmann and Aurelien Chuameni. If Fernandez is blocked, Messi’s attack burden will also increase.
