Joao Felix scored 2 goals against Juventus in Atlético's victory against Juventus in the International Nations Cup. The Portuguese has made Griezmann forget and the 'rojiblancos' are launched in this preseason
The Athletic of Madrid has to face up this season to the course of Antoine Griezmann. The French has left to the FC Barcelona by 120 million euros after being during several years the leader and the best player of the group rojiblanco. To relieve to the Frenchman, the colchoneros did with Joao Félix, promising attacker of the Benfica.
The forward cost him to the Atleti 120 'kilos', an incredible quantity by a footballer of alone 19 years and with hardly a campaign in the Benfica to his backs. There were a lot of criticisms by this traspaso, but apparently in pre-season, the Portuguese could have gone out even cheap. In the Athletic seems that they already have forgotten to Griezmann after the tremenda irruption of Joao.
The new '7' rojiblanco was completing an excellent pre-season and in front of the Juventus, in the last friendly of the preparation, went back to be the best. The forward marked the two so many of the triumph colchonero by 2-1 in front of the Italians. Two golazos very distinct to put the brooch of gold to some spectacular weeks in which it has done that anybody in Wanda agree already of Griezmann.
The first so much could it to him give to Lemar, that touched mildly the balloon after the strike of Joao Félix, but still like this his volley arriving from backwards is noteworthy. The second so much that put also involved to the ex of the Monaco, that put him the ball to the gap of incredible way so that the luso went back to define wonderfully to the first touch.
A total forward
In front of the Juve taught his version more 'killer' and the two goals that marked were to the first touch, but along the pre-season has showed that it is much more that a goleador. In front of the Real Madrid, for example, showed his version of mediapunta and connected wonderfully with Diego Coast, Lemar and with all the footballers that surrounded him.
Has a strike of spectacular balloon so much in the shot as in the pass and has a very good vision of game. Although it does not stand out by his speed, yes is fast and has a powerful exit with balloon. Besides, technically it is a delight and moves very well between lines. In this pre-season has enamoured to all his fans, to the Cholo Simeone and even to his rivals. To his 19 years, still has a lot of margin of improvement and scares the level to the that can arrive if it keeps growing.
