Enzo Fernandez has capped off a breakout 2022 World Cup by bagging the FIFA Young Player Award on Sunday.

The 21-year-old was in stunning form throughout the tournament in Qatar, becoming the surprising driving force of Argentina’s midfield despite only making a hand-full of appearances for his nation prior to the World Cup.

The Benfica man scored a crucial goal for Argentina in the group stages in the win over Mexico, and put in a storming performance in the knockout rounds too – earning plaudits for his battling performance in the final in particular.

Fernandez will now undoubtedly be linked with a number of clubs in the upcoming January transfer window after his winter heroics.
