Do you know Alfred Finnbogason?

It's Leo Messi, neither Cristiano Ronaldo nor Diego Costa nor Wayne Rooney. The sensation of this beginning of the season is called Alfred Finnbogason and plays in the Dutch Heerenveen. is icelandic, have 24 years, 1, 84 meters of height and manners of a big player, as we already pointed to your day in Hanged by Football. A striker who has the goal in his veins and who is astonishing at this start of the football session with extraterrestrial scoring records.

Alfred Finnbogason, un goleador surgido del frío

nine pure, He can be defined as an infallible footballer in hand-to-hand and in the small area and with a truly data-proof efficiency in practically any position on the field. He is not the typical first-touch scorer, He also knows how to amaze when necessary. In seven days of Eredivisie who has played (one missed due to injury) he has ten points, to which must be added two others in the KNVB Beker. Last year he scored 24 goals, in a notice to navigators.

It is not the typical case of a player who saw his statistics through hattricks as perhaps the other tulip league sensation can do, and the Italian Graziano Pellè (which we also talked about), nine goals in eight games for Feyenoord. No, Finnbogason has scored in each day he has played, demonstrating one of his strengths, the regularity. It is true that he plays in Holland and that there the defenses are more fragile and the goals fall like sausages but this does not at all tarnish his spectacular start.

It is valued at about 6 million and a half euros. A ridiculous figure when compared to other forwards with higher range but lower performance. And a figure that will surely make this the last time we see him in the Eredivisie. Play as is logical with the Iceland team, second classified in Group E and right now in a playoff position. And it is that curiosities of life, puede ser que Finnbogason be the next hidden star of the Brazil World Cup 2014.
