Description:

Tomás Conechny is a product of San Lorenzo youth academy. He is considered to be one of the brightest young talents in Argentina. He scored 5 goals at the Sudamericano U-17 and was one of the best players of the tournament, at which his Argentina came in second. The young Albicelestes got a much worse result a few months later at the U-17 World Cup, where they got knocked out after 3 losses in the group stages. The Argentines cannot blame Tomas for this, however. In 2015, he was one of only two Argentinians to feature on a prestigious list entitled “TOP 40 young talent in world football – born in 1998″ by The Guardian.

 

Quotes:

“Conechny hails from the southern Patagonian city of Comodoro Rivadavia but has moved to Buenos Aires to join San Lorenzo, where he is excelling in the under-age set-up. He is the top goalscorer of Argentina’s Under-17 team and looks to have a big future. He has said his ambition is to play in the Premier League and describes himself as an out-and-out No9. He also, somewhat unfortunately, hit the headlines when he injured himself playing on his PlayStation console, focusing so much on the screen that he fell out of a window. The good news is that he rarely loses his footing like that on the real pitch.”
