    • The next Conembol Youth Championship & Fifa U20 WC is happening in 2023. So ideally from age eligibility players born after 1 Jan 2003 should qualify. Apart from Valentin Barco who is already in this list , there should be a interesting names like Luka Romero, Matias Soule, Dario Sarmiento who will qualify . Since 2021 tournaments got cancelled for U20 , decent chance that they may relax the age criteria by 1 more year & then players born in 2002 like Facundo Farias,Alan Velasco, Matias Palacios, Guiliano Simeone,Exequiel Zeballos, Bruno Amione, Cristian Medina , Santiago Simon, Carlos Alcaraz may get a shot. Interesting times ahead with Masche

  1. I’m very interested about velentin barco…he is very promising and NT need this type of player. He’s good left back and hope between 2-3 years he will promote himself in senior team.
