Three Argentine players nominated for 2022 Golden Boy award


Three Argentine players are nominated for the 2022 Golden Boy award.

The award started in 2003 by Italian newspaper Tuttosport and only two Argentine players have ever won it. Lionel Messi in 2005 with FC Barcelona and Sergio Agüero in 2007 with Atletico Madrid.

In 2022, it’s Matías Palacios, born May 10, 2002 of FC Basel who is nominated. Luka Romero, born November 18, 2004 of Lazio and Matías Soulé, born April 25, 2003 of Juventus are the two other Argentine players.

Both Romero and Soulé were part of the Argentina U20 team coached by Javier Mascherano who played in the Toulon tournament.


  1. Garnacho not in top 100..? Unbelievable..! Anyway, At least 3 included.

    Meanwhile the updated current market value of our u23 players by transfermarkt…in Euro.
    1. Julian Alvarez 23M
    2. Thiago Almada 18M
    3. Alexis Mac Allister 16M
    4. Eqequiel Palacios 15M
    5. Enzo Fernandes 15M
    6. Nicolas Dominguez 13 M

    The value is not at all interesting…all of our main rivals have some 50+ million u23 players..and even 100+ u23 players…!
    Currently we are behind our rivals in this matter. Hope we will produce more and more talented players in each and every positions in the coming years.
