- Sporting Clube de Portugal
I think it’s a great comparison. Inácio is the type of CB Barcelona would orgasm over.You know what I discovered today? Tiago Fernandes (Manuel son) was saying today when Bruno Fernandes still played there was watching one game from the under 17's or 19´s and after watching Gonçalo Inácio playing with his left foot turned to him and said "This is the next Mathieu coming from the Academy".
Of course a bit of overreaction, but still shows Fernandes has a good eye for spotting talent. We don't play great football, but at least we have someone who isn't afraid of playing young players on the first 11.
He is like a midfielder who plays at CB. That pass he did to Porro who then crossed to Pote who hit the bar was nothing short of sublime. Also his pass to Pote who had a beautiful control but could not finish was also great . Added to that how calm he is on the ball it’s very natural to him. With Nuno Mendes and Inácio we might have the future starting LB and LCB of the national team.
For anyone interested in what I am talking about:
:At 32 seconds is his first pass
;At 50 seconds is the second one
