Euro 2020: 5 breakout stars we should watch out for
The Euro 2020 promises to be exciting, with numerous star players to chose from different world teams. We present to you the 5-breakout star players you should out for going into the Euros. Mind you the list may not portray your perspective, be free to register and comment on your top 5 stars to watch out for.
The list contains players who are playing their first major international competition for their nations.
1. Jules Kounde: Jules Olivier Koundé (born 12 November 1998) is a French professional footballer who plays as a center-back for La Liga club Sevilla and the France national team. The Sevilla man has been in impeccable form this season in La Liga. He has been on the radar of the biggest clubs in Europe.
The competition provides him with the platform to show Europe and the rest of the world that he is no fluke. By the end of the competition, I expect him to be among the best defenders of the completion, that’s how good I think he is.
2. Federico Chiesa: The Italian is a pacy, direct and powerful forward. He is the Pires kind of forward. Last season after C.Ronaldo, he was Juve’s best forward player. This year’s Euros is welcome to a big stage for Chiesa as he takes on the rest of Europe to prove himself as the future of Italian football. He is one to watch out for, he is a world-beater.
3. Bukayo Saka: Saka, just 19 and he is Arsenal’s best player. They couldn’t create or score without him in the pitch. This kid can do anything on the football pitch, he can score, defend, dribble, outrun, and even create chances. This man can do anything on the pitch. Saka is here to light up the Euros.
4. Alexander Isak: Despite being young, Isak is showing that he is an intelligent striker that knows how to hurt the opposition’s defense. When mentioning an intelligent striker, we highlight his clever runs and positioning, as well as good attacking awareness. He can be seen most of the time in between defenders. Isak is well able to shut down the Euros and make the competition, his. Watch out for him.
5. Diogo Jota: It’s not a lot to work from. Of course, he has been excellent for Portugal during this period as well, scoring three goals in four competitive appearances, which suggests his good form for the Reds is not simply an attempt to prove his importance to his new manager, a heartening aside.
