The 21-year-old midfielder has won the Best Young Player of the Tournament award at World Cup 2022. The Benfica starlet played in all seven of Argentina’s games in Qatar as La Albiceleste won the World Cup for a third time.

Fernandez beat off competition from players such as Jude Bellingham, Goncalo Ramos and Aurelien Tchouameni to scoop the award after an impressive tournament. The youngster only made his international debut in September but forced his way into the starting XI in Qatar.

Argentina captain Lionel Messi was full of praise for Fernandez after the Mexico win. “I know Enzo very well, here from the national team and I also played against him in the Champions League,” he told reporters afterwards.

“He deserves it, because he’s a spectacular kid and a very important player for us.”
