The Portuguese national team can boast of having a crop of youngsters like Rafael Leao, Nuno Mendes or Vitinha who will ensure victories for years, but further back, from the Under-17 category, there is one player in particular who is already taking all reflectors: Geovany Quenda.
Born in 2007 in Guinea-Bissau, Quenda is one of the greatest promises of Portuguese football and his figure was highlighted in the last Costa Cálida Supercup tournament.where he not only won the title of Best Player of the Tournament but also left a postcard that invites him to dream about his future in football.
Portugal faced local Spain, England and Morocco in the competition, but it was against the Africans that the forward scored an unforgettable goal for everyone.
Just as Diego Armando Maradona did in 1986, Quenda took the ball from the middle of the field and without losing the ball at any time dribbled past up to seven players. to score an impressive goal that quickly went viral on social networks.
As expected, Quenda was the most prominent figure in the match that ultimately ended with a 6-0 win over Morocco, ratifying the victories previously achieved 3-2 against the English and later 4-1 against the Iberians.
The 16-year-old is currently living in the reserve league of Portuguese football with Sporting Lisbon, although after so much it is possible that many clubs are interested in acquiring the services of the right winger as well.
either way Portugal celebrates the birth of a new figure just at the moment in which Cristiano Ronaldo could have his days numbered in the team for his 39 years.
