One of the revelations of the Spanish league season, youngster Goncalo Guedes caught the eye while on loan at Valencia from Paris Saint-Germain. Capable of playing out wide on either flank, as an out-and-out striker, or in a creative midfield role, Guedes is a match winner.

Quick to transition from defence to attack, he can both score goals and provide them. The talented forward caught coach Fernando Santos's eye in the closing stages of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ qualifiers, and his energy and willingness to take people on make him a useful and lively alternative in the Portugal attack.
