Many football fans have been waiting for Euro 2020 so much that they completely ignore the America's Cup, which began on Sunday, June 13th. Brazil remains the owner and favorite, but it is threatened by strong Argentina, Colombia and Uruguay. It is noteworthy that a couple of days ago the venue of the tournament was in question. Original hosts Colombia were forced to pull out in mid-May due to political unrest in the country, while their stand-ins Argentina were also ineligible to host due to growing COVID-19 concerns. However, the tournament will take place. Brazil volunteered to be the host despite much criticism from its own fans. It seems that there will be no less stars in this tournament than in the Euro, but let's talk about less banal players who should be watched.
Gonzalo Plata ( Ecuador)
Sporting ggbetcasino.org won their first title in 19 years this season. This was made possible thanks to a considerable number of young talents, among which the Ecuadorian striker Gonzalo Plata stands out. Of course, Plata did not play a decisive role, taking part in only 14 matches during the season, but he made a name for himself in the game with Maritimo when he scored.
At 20 years old, Plata is already a full-time international and has appeared in all four World Cup qualifiers, scoring twice and being sent off after two yellow cards in a 6-1 thrashing of Colombia. won the bronze ball (third best player) at the U20 World Championship in Poland. Plata and Ecuador outperformed expectations, reaching the semi-finals and beating out Mexico, Uruguay, Italy and the United States on their way to third place. Copa America 2021 has the potential to be Plata's breakthrough tournament, after which he will try his luck in the Champions League with Sporting.
Fede Valverde (Uruguay)
Valverde is probably the most famous on this list. The Real Madrid midfielder played a key role in Zinedine Zidane's second spell as Real Madrid manager, either as a support right back or as a stand-in for Toni Kroos, Luka Modric or Casemiro. Like Plata, Valverde won the silver ball (2nd best player) at the 2017 tournament, where the Uruguayans took 4th place. He has since been promoted to Uruguay's senior side and makes a vital midfield pair with Juventus player Rodrigo Bentancur, who could easily feature in this story as well. resurrected after being dropped by Barcelona last summer. But they have not been young for a long time, like Diego Godin, so without the help of young talents, nowhere.-e92b-4755-96e0-bd72e34f03ff.jpeg" alt="The America's Cup is in full swing.

Gonzalo Montiel (Argentina) 24-year-old right-back Montiel is the favorite of coach Lionel Scaloni, who himself was a right-back at one time. Montiel plays at River Plate and has proven himself with the team since his debut in 2016, winning five major awards in that time. He plays most comfortably on the right as a full-back or right-back in a back three and has been praised for his tenacity and attentiveness. If necessary, Montiel will give the pass and the cross will actually hit, so he now regularly performs both for the club and for the national team. false positive test for COVID-19. That issue seems to have now been resolved and Montiel is expected to be in the Argentine starting lineup in their first match against the Chileans. Montiel is interested in many European clubs like Roma and Lyon, while West Ham seemed poised to finalize the deal in January , but something went wrong. Interest is still high.
