League summary:

 

Description:

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”.

 

Quotes:

“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.”
