Description:

The whole world heard about this young Atletico Paranaense midfield at the FIFA U-17 World cup in United Arab Emirates. He jumped into the squad rather surprisingly, replacing Gabriel from Santos and became a part of a brilliant offensive quartet with Gabriel Boschilia, Caio Rangel and Mosquito. He scored 5 goals and made 5 assists but despite that, young Canarinhos were knocked out in the quarterfinals by Mexico. Even then, he was nominated to the best XI of the tournament by FIFA. Nathan is a player that is characterized by clinical finishing and even better chance creation. Thanks to his attributes, it is not a problem for him to play either at offensive midfield position, centre forward or the wing. He hasn’t played for the senior “Furacao” team yet, but he should get his chance in next year’s Campeonato Brasiliero.

 

Quotes:

“Nathan was given the number 10 is not by accident. Nathan is a player with great technique, which usually plays the role of playmaker. He is destined to become one of the next big thing of world football.”
