When Portuguese wonderkid Joao Felix won the European Golden Boy award in 2019 he joined a glittering list of soon-to-be superstar names, including the likes of Lionel Messi, Wayne Rooney, Sergio Aguero, Paul Pogba and Kylian Mbappe. Nicknamed the '€120million Boy' by a number of his former teammates at SL Benfica (in reference to his precautionary release fee clause), excited chatter about the attacking midfielder's undeniable potential has followed his every cultured touch of the ball. It should have come as no surprise when Spanish giants Atletico Madrid came calling to bring this generational talent to La Liga in July 2019. Now, with UEFA EURO 2020 on the horizon, it appears the world is at his jinking, expeditious feet.
