Re: South American Superstars Part 1

he not have chances in Benfica so i doubt he will increase.. maybe with new coach he can have luck and play more games.

Adu's stats for benfica last season - 11 subs - 142 mins - 2 goals - 1yc

For the amount of playing time he has had, 2 goals is not bad at all. We must all remember that Oscar Cardozo and Nuno Gomes lie above him in the Benfica pecking order, at the moment. They will be hard to displace. I think Benfica bought Adu to replace Gomes in the future. I would think Adu will get more chances next season. I think his rating will stay the same.

As good as Adu COULD turn out to be, he will NEVER in his life become as good as he was over hyped to be.

Re: South American Superstars Part 1

Good job on the scouting must pass some rep to to you. However I'm not really sold on Eric Lichaj or Johann Smith. Good players with some potential but not sure they belong on this list. Good calls on Bates, Arguez and Nyguen. Not sure if you consider Alex Nimo as too well known but him along with Stefan Jerome are teenagers worth keeping an eye on

He in Portugal has played more as AM or Winger.. when he played he was really poor.. and the goals he made were really lucky goals.. if what he plays is his best, is better he find another career.. :|

Dario Bottinelli

#96 An unknown talent here, his name is Dario Bottinelli, and he is from Argentina. He is usually fielded as an attacking midfielder, and likes to score goals, judging by his stats. He is 21 years of age, and was born on the 26th December 1986 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Bottinelli is 1.68m in height. He began his career in the San Lorenzo youth setup, before being moved into the first team for the 2006/2007 season in Argentina. He became a regular throughout both the Apertura and Clausura, making 36 appearances, scoring 3 goals. He helped San Lorenzo to win the Clausura, a brilliant achievement. For the 2007/2008 season, Bottinelli moved to Racing Club, but was immediately sent on loan to Universidad Catolica of Chile, this turned out to be a supurb decision by the club. In the 2008 Apertura in Chile, Bottinelli started 11 games, scoring a creditable 5 goals. However, he picked up 3 yellow cards and more importantly 2 red cards, leaving him suspended for some of Catolica's matches. He was a key part of the team, playing supurbly in one of the two attacking midfield positions, in Catolica's usual 4-2-2-2 formation. His Copa Libertadores performances are the best part however. He started all 6 of Catolica's games. In a 2-1 loss to Club America of Mexico, he got booked in the 51st minute, scored in the 71st minute, and finally got substituted in the 80th minute, being replaced by Rodrigo Toloza. In the following game against San Martin, of Peru, he scored in the 30th minute, and got booked in the 43rd minute. His goal turned out to be the winner in a 0-1 victory. A 1-2 loss to River Plate of Bottinelli's native Argentina followed that match, with Bottinelli picking up another booking, this time in the 53rd minute. Another crunch match with River Plate followed, a 2-0 loss, with Bottinelli getting booked in the 66th minute. Catolica got back to winning ways in their next match, beating San Martin 1-0, with Bottinelli getting booked again, in the 90th minute. Catolica's final group game came against Club America, Catolica recorded an impressive 2-0 victory with Bottinelli on the scoresheet for the 3rd time in the tournament, scoring in the 90th minute. Bottinelli gained a booking in the 32nd minute beforehand. This booking meant he had been booked in every one of Catolica's games. A rare occurence. Mexican side Atlas have confirmed Bottinelli as a signing for the 2008 Apertura in Mexico, although I would have preferred him to move to Club America, but Atlas beat them to his signature. Should Bottinelli continue playing like he has in Chile, Mexico should be a good place for him to be, with the league being much more well known.

Re: South American Superstars Part 1

Omar Arellano

#97 Born on the 18th June 1987 in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico was Omar Arellano. He is 21 years of age, and plays as a 2nd striker or winger. He is 1.74m in height. Last year, on October 17th Arellano made his senior international debut for Mexico, against Guatemala. He appeared as a late second half substitute, maybe this is the sign of a future top Mexican player?. Arellano began his career in the youth ranks of Pachuca, before being moved to the first team squad in 2005. He spent most of his debut first team season on loan at CF Juarez, making 4 appearances, scoring once. However, in the same season he made his debut appearance for Pachuca. The following season, CF Juarez once again loaned Arellano, but this time Arellano featured for them less (just 1 appearance), and for Pachuca a lot more (8 appearances, 1 goal). The 2006/2007 season brought Arellano's first full year at Pachuca, with himself making 9 appearances, scoring 2 goals in the process. Top side Guadalajara saw Arellano's possible talent, and snapped him up for the 2007/2008 season in Mexico. Arellano had a decent Apertura, making 7 starts, appearing as a substitute 6 times, scoring 1 goal and picking up 1 yellow card. On the other hand, Arellano suffered a poor Clausura, making just 1 start and appearaing as a substitute just 5 times. Guadalajara were also featuring in the Copa Libertadores this season, Arellano did not feature in Las Chivas' first three group games against San Jose (a 2-0 victory), Santos (a 1-0 loss) and Cucuta Deportiva (a 0-1 loss). Arellano got his chance in the 4th group game against Cucuta Deportiva, replacing the unique young talent, Sergio Avila in the 63rd minute. Guadalajara still lost the game 1-0 though. The 5th group game against Santos brought Arellano his first start, and did not dissapoint, scoring the opening goal in a 3-2 victory, over Brazilian side Santos. His goal came in the 14th minute. Omar Bravo replaced him in the 63rd minute. His first start was soon followed by his second start, where he played a full 90 minutes in the competition against San Jose, helping Guadalajara to a comfortable 3-0 victory. If Arellano gains some more consistency and improves his finishing, he should become a regular at El Rebano Sagrado.

Re: South American Superstars Part 1

Ever Guzman

#98 Here we have a young striker who has moved slightly off the radar, but he is a talented forward. Born in Celaya, Mexico on the 15th March 1988 is Ever Guzman. He is now 20 years of age, 1.71m in height and playing for Morelia of the Mexican Primera Division. Guzman first appeared in 2005, at the Fifa U17 World Cup. He did not play in Mexico's first group match against Uruguay, but gained 6 minutes of playing time after replacing superstar, Giovani Dos Santos in the 84th minute against Australia, in Mexico's 2nd group game. A full match followed against Turkey, in Mexico's final group game. Guzman showed he could score the goals, whilst Carlos Vela was absent, scoring in the 11th minute against the Turks. Mexico progressed to the quarter finals, where Costa Rica stood in their way from a place in the semis. Guzman replaced Christian Sanchez in the 77th minute, as the match went to extra time after a 1-1 draw in normal time. Guzman scored his 2nd of the tournament, with one of the two winning goals for Mexico in extra time, his goal came in the 96th minute. Holland were Mexico's opponents in the semis, and once again Guzman showed he was the 'Solskjaer' of the Mexican team, scoring another goal after coming on as a substitute. he replaced Dos Santos in the 75th minute, and scored in the 90th minute, his 3rd of the tournament. South American rivals Brazil, were the obstacle keeping Mexico from lifting the 2005 Fifa U17 World Cup, but Mexico's Ever Guzman once again replaced Dos Santos and scored again, his 4th of the tournament, as Mexico swept Brazil aside, 3-0, to lift the trophy. Guzman's goal came in the 86th minute. Guzman was the tournament's 2nd top scorer, behind team mate and Arsenal prodigy Carlos Vela. Mexican side, Morelia groomed Guzman through their youth system, and eventually moved him into the first team squad. He made his debut on the 15th May 2004 against Pachuca. Chances were few and far between for Guzman after his debut, but 2006 provided him with 14 appearances and 2 goals, because he was given a much needed run in the starting 11. A hugely disappointing 2007 followed, with Guzman making just 1 appearance thoughout the season. The 2008 Apertura did not prove much better for himself either, making just 1 start, appearing as a substitute 6 times, and collecting a yellow card. No goals. However the 2008 Clausura was a different story for Guzman, making 10 starts, scoring 3 goals and picking up 2 yellow cards. Should Guzman fire on all cylinders next season, I would like to see him become more prolific.

Re: South American Superstars Part 1

Boris Sagredo

Thanks to 'Sinny' for bringing me to the attention of this player.

#99 My penultimate post on a player, within this thread. My favourite position is once again where the player in question, plays... attacking midfield. His name is Boris Sagredo, and he is from Chile. He plays for top Chilean side Colo Colo, and is 19 years of age. He was born in San Felipe, Chile on the 21st March 1989, and is currently 1.65m in height. Sagredo or "Pichon" as he is also known recently came to prominence at the 2008 U23 Toulon Tournament in France, he replaced Carlos Carmona in the 73rd minute, during Chile's opening group game against hosts France, then in the 90th minute, Sagredo scored a supurb lob to put Chile 3-5 up. Sagredo also provided the assist for Chile's 4th goal, scored by Juan Gonzalo Lorca. Sagredo was unused in Chile's 0-2 win over Holland, but then started their final group game against Japan (a 2-0 win), before being replaced in the 46th minute by Pedro Morales. Chile progressed to the semi finals, where the Ivory Coast stood in their way. The final score finished 2-1 to Chile, with Sagredo unused. However, "Pichon" replaced Nelson Rebolledo in the 73rd minute, to gain 13 minutes of playing time in the final, Sagredo could not help Chile succomb to a 1-0 loss to final openents Italy though. During Colo Colo's Libertadores Cup campaign last season, Sagredo appeared in 1 of a possible 6 matches. This appearance, came in the form of a start against Atlas. Sagredo played the full 90 minutes, and the final score was 1-1. Taking a trip back in time, Sagredo made his debut for "Los Albos" on the 3rd October 2007 against fellow Chilean team, Everton de Vina del Mar. A month later, Sagredo became a fan favourite, when he provided the assist for Giovanni Hernandez to score the only goal of the game, against rivals Universidad Catolica. The match after, Sagredo scored his first goal for Colo Colo, against Palestino. Altogether, Sagredo has made 13 appearances, scoring 2 goals. If Chile are picking this playmaker for an U23 tournament, when he is just 19 years of age, then the future is bright, the future is Sagredo.

Re: South American Superstars Part 1

The Day Has Come, #100 Is Finally Here!

And It's...

Victor Ismael Sosa!

#100 My last player is Victor Ismael Sosa. He was born on the 18th January 1987 in San Martin, Argentina, and is now 21 years of age and 1.79m in height. He is a striker, but has been used on the wings also. His curent club is Independiente, but he has been linked with moves to Liverpool and Dinamo Moscow. Lets start with his international career for Argentina. Last year, Sosa was chosen to represent Argentina at U20 level, at the South American U20 Championship, in Paraguay, he had a successful campaign, featuring in all but one match for the 'Albicelestes'. Sosa started 3 of Argentina's 4 games in the first group stage, against Ecuador, Venezuela and Uruguay. Argentina's first match was against Ecuador, Sosa notched up his first start, and his first booking, coming in the 15th minute. He was later replaced by Alejandro Gomez in the 54th minute. He was dropped for Argentina's 2nd group match against Colombia, and didn't even make an appearance as a substitute, unused. He was recalled to the starting 11 for the next match against Venezuela, and Sosa didn't dissapoint. He scored in the 86th minute, his first goal of the tournament, and played the full 90 minutes. His excellent display against Venezuela was followed up by another goal, and a full 90 minutes against Uruguay, in Argentina's final group game. Argentina scraped through to the final group with just one win, combined with two draws and one loss. The first team to face Argentina were Brazil, the eventual winners. Sosa started the match, and scored in the 46th minute to level the match at 1-1, he was later replaced by Angel Di Maria in the 63rd minute, the match ended 2-2. Sosa failed to score for the first time in three matches against Paraguay in Argentina's 2nd group match, and was replaced by fellow forward, Gonzalo Aban in the 56th minute. Thankfully, Paraguay succombed to a 1-0 loss. Sosa continued to stay in the starting 11 however, and notched up his 6th start in 7 matches against Chile, once again he was replaced by Gonzalo Aban, this time later in the game, in the 78th minute. Both defences were on top in a 0-0 draw. A first goal in three matches still wouldn't come for Sosa in Argentina's 4th group match against Colombia. Franco Di Santo replaced him with 25 minutes of the match remaining, unusually 0-0 was again the result for Argentina, who are known to attack. 'Albicelestes' final group game came against Uruguay, Sosa once again failed to score, and was replaced by Lautaro Acosta in the 63rd minute. It was a dismal none-goalscoring end for Sosa, but his talent shone through in the early stages, proving why he is considered one of the best Argentine talents around. Lets take a look at Sosa's domestic career now. During the 2004/2005 season, Sosa burst onto the scene for Independiente, making 4 appearances at the age of 18. 2005/2006 featured a loan spell with hometown club, San Martin. Sosa made 8 appearances, as well as scoring his first professional goal. Back at Independiente for the 2006/2007 Apertura, it was Sosa's time to shine, and he fufilled his potential. He made 6 starts, and appeared as a substitute 8 times. He scored in the 49th minute against Estudiantes on the 22nd September 2006, and in the following match against Gimnasia De la Plata on the 1st October 2006, Sosa scored again, this time in the 19th minute. His electric form continued, and helped him to a first ever hat trick, coming against Nueva Chicago on the 14th October 2006. Sosa appeared as a substitute in the 53rd minute, and went on to score in the 68th minute and then hit another two goals to complete his hat trick, in injury time. The talent had come to the surface. He picked up one yellow card in the Apertura, this came against Velez Sarsfield on the 21st October 2006, in the 51st minute. Could Sosa continue his supurb form into the 2006/2007 Clausura?, well you are about to find out. He made 6 starts, and 7 substitute appearances in the Clausura, one less appearance altogether than the Apertura. His first goal came against Gimnasia De La Plata on the 8th April 2007. After coming on as a substitute in the 46th minute, Sosa capped his 8th appearance of the Clausura off with a goal in the 89th minute. The young striker, then had to wait until his final two appearances to score his next couple of goals. They came against Quilmes (10th June 2007) and Gimnasia De Jujuy (16th June 2007), in the 90th and 42nd minutes. Sosa picked up two yellow cards, the first came against Belgrano on the 16th February 2007, in the 76th minute. The second came against Estudiantes on the 1st April 2007, in the 74th minute. With the 2006/2007 Apertura and Clausura combined, Sosa made a respectable 27 appearances (15 as a substitute), scoring an impressive 8 goals. A good first full season for the teenage sensation. The 2007/2008 Apertura brought Sosa 17 starts, and 2 substitute appearances, meaning he had appeared in every Independiente game. His season started well with two goals in Independiente's first two games. The first came against opening game oponents Lanus on the 4th August 2007. Sosa scored in the 45th minute. The following game on the 12th August 2007, saw Sosa score against Tigre in the 5th minute. The goals then dried up for 5 matches, before he put the ball in the net against his hometown club, San Martin on the 8th September 2007. His goal came in the 45th minute. Just like his previous opening season goals, his next goal came in consecutive games. Sosa scored against Huracan just three days afer his goal against San Martin. This came in the 29th minute. Little did he know, that would be his last goal of the 2007/2008 Apertura. Sosa also picked up one yellow card, this came on the 21st October 2007 against San Lorenzo, in the 33rd minute. Sosa's 2007/2008 Clausura was a poor one. He made only 4 starts, and 8 substitute appearances, scoring a grand total of zero goals, a rubbish end to the season in Argentina, for Sosa. Well that is Victor Ismael Sosa, a player with exceptional talent, no doubt, hopefully next season will bring more goals, and a lot more consistency.

Re: South American Superstars Part 1

And let me be the second.

This is very thorough and Im sure an extermely big help to a lot of managers struggling to find young talents. Each talent I am sure will do big things and I can't wait for the likes of Meynar to be added to the DB.

Might I ask, what is the difference between Part 1 and Part 2?

Re: South American Superstars Part 1

Congratulations Joe. :)

You have done a great job with the 100 talents you have posted here. There are many names already known, but most were unknown, and Lee Nguyen was definitely my favorites, since he comes from a Vietnamese descent and his family name is the most common in Vietnam. You've done an incredible job with these players and put an amazing amount of effort.

Congratulations once again. :)

P.S: Jad, it's Neymar not Meynar :P

Re: South American Superstars Part 1

Thank you all, for the positive comments. Looks like the thread was an incredible success.

Jad, Part 2 is going to be once again on South and North America, but I am going to use a different style of presentation, to make it more reader friendly. The information will be as, if not more detailed and precise than Part 1, I will just add some pictures, video clips, new fonts and a change of colour.

The thread will also have a new name: "A Guide To The Americas Part 2"
