Eight Portuguese talents up for Golden Boy 2020

TuttoSport yesterday cut their 100 man shortlist for the Golden Boy 2020 award down to 60 players.

The award was first launched in 2003 by the Italian TuttoSport, the winner of the inaugural prize was Rafael Van Der Vaart. Several newspapers across Europe participate in the voting, with ABola being Portugal’s representative.

Portugal has experienced glory in this award before, just last year the winner was João Félix after his breakthrough season at SL Benfica and subsequent move to Atlético de Madrid. Whilst no Portuguese player is favourite to take home the award, it is great to see eight Portuguese players remain up for the prize after the list was cut down by 40 players.

Last years winner, João Félix
