League summary:



Rodrigo Amaral is considered to be one of the biggest talents in Uruguay. He is a product of Nacional Montevideo youth system. The world first heard of him in early 2015, when he played excellently at the South American Youth Football Championship. Despite being 2 years younger than most of his colleagues, he scored a goal, had 5 assists and was officially selected to be the “Revelation of the Tournament”.



“Amaral may have been among the youngest players at the competition, but that didn’t stop him leaving as its top assister and ‘Revelation of the Tournament’ recipient. The 17-year-old’s marvellous vision and passing brought back memories of Uruguayan legend Enzo Francescoli, while his exhilarating arsenal of tricks – including his principal party piece, the 360 turn popularised by Maradona and Zinedine Zidane – wowed spectators. The attacking midfielder has already broken into the first team at Montevideo heavyweights Nacional and attracted attention from prestigious European clubs.”



Football Talent Scout potential rating:
