Mendoza (Argentina) (EFE) .
These are the ten most sensitive casualties of the championship:
1. ALEJANDRO GARNACHO (ARGENTINA)
Manchester United did not want to part with the 18-year-old winger at a key moment of the season, with the team struggling in the Premier League to stay in the Champions League places and just weeks before the FA CUP final against Manchester City.
Born in Spain, but from an Argentine family, he defends the colors of the Albiceleste and is gaining more and more minutes with the Red Devils. He has just recovered from an ankle injury.
2. VITOR ROQUE (BRAZIL)
He was one of the stars in the South American that Brazil conquered this year in Colombia and in which he ended up being one of the top scorers, with six goals. At first, Athletico Paranaense was inclined to let him play, but later backed down.
The powerful forward plays regularly in the first team of the Curitiba team. Several greats in Europe have already asked about him, including Barcelona.
3. ALVARO RODRIGUEZ (URUGUAY)
Another of the great figures of the South American past. He helped Uruguay to finish second in the final hexagonal.
The tall forward made his debut in January with the Real Madrid first team. Without many opportunities to fill in for Karim Benzema, he has caused a sensation in the few minutes he has had.
The white club, however, did not release him for the U20 World Cup, despite the attempts of the Uruguayan federation.
4. JHON DURAN (COLOMBIA)
Aston Villa wants to have the Colombian striker at the end of the European season. Although he is not a starter, the Spanish coach Unai Emery has given him minutes in the final stretch of the games.
“I regret not being able to be part of this tournament as important as it is a World Cup for me personally and for the country,” Durán declared on his social networks last week. He was not in the South American sub’20 either.
5. ENDRICK (BRAZIL)
The latest sensation of Brazilian football, tied by Real Madrid for a million, has not been able to be summoned by the ‘Canarinho’ either. Palmeiras did not let him, as he already did in the South American.
Established in the first team, Endrick, a 16-year-old forward, started the season as a starter, although in recent games he has been a reserve. He has been breaking all precociousness records with Palmeiras.
6. FACUNDO GOODNIGHT (ARGENTINA)
Another delicate drop for Javier Mascherano in the U20 World Cup. Brighton did not bow to the wishes of the midfielder raised in Rosario Central either.
The English team is having an outstanding campaign in the Premier, with options to qualify for the next Europa League.
7. BAD TASTE (FRANCE)
He is one of the right-backs with the most projection in Europe. He trained at Olympique de Lyon and was acquired for 30 million euros by Chelsea in January.
Gusto is part of the long list of absences that coach Landry Chauvin has had to deal with, who was met with the refusal of at least a dozen clubs to lend their players.
8. CRISTIAN VOLPATO (ITALY)
Roma also did not give the ‘ok’ to Cristian Volpato, the young promise born in Australia who refused to go to the last World Cup in Qatar 2022 with the oceanic team and now is left out of Argentina’s sub’20 with Italy.
The attacking midfielder is not a starter, although he usually has minutes in José Mourinho’s team, immersed in the fight for European places in Calcio and one step away from qualifying for the Europa League final.
9. RICH LEWIS (ENGLAND)
The winger also met with refusal from Manchester City.
In his first season with the ‘citizen’ first team, he has played around twenty official matches, scoring one goal and without being a key player in Pep Guardiola’s plans, who has praised Lewis on various occasions for his “contagious energy”. inside the field.
10. OSCAR GLOUKH (ISRAEL)
The midfielder dazzled in the 2022 U19 European Championship, in which Israel surprised by fighting face to face in the final with England, who only won after extra time.
Gloukh scored three goals in that tournament, one in the final, and in November of that year he made his senior debut.
His speed and creativity caught the attention of RB Salzburg, who signed him in January and now has prevented him from being in Argentina for the U20 World Cup.
