Keep your eye on… Suso.
Since 2007, Spain have won the U-19 European Championship three times, clinching their third title this past weekend in a 1-0 win over Greece. While the squad was supplied with plenty of future stars, such as Deulofeu and Jesé, one player stood out: Suso. That’s his nickname, of course. His full name is Jesus Joaquin Fernandez Saez de La Torre, and he plays for Liverpool.
The compilation posted above showcases highlights only from the U-19 tournament, yet it’s plain to see just how dominant he was. The spraying of 35 yard passes time and time again reminds us of Xabi Alonso, yet there’s something about his skill on the ball that also adds a hint of Juan Mata. At only 18 years old, it could still be a year or two before we see Suso regularly at Anfield. Nevertheless, he is a playmaker to keep your eye on, especially as Brendan Rogers tries to transform Liverpool into a free-flowing attacking side. [AFR Twitter/FB]
