A key player in Peñarol’s run to the semi-finals of the Copa Sudamericana has been their young striker Agustin Alvarez Martinez.

The 20 year-old is the tournament’s top scorer with 10 goals (no penalties) and 2 assists in 14 games, while this season Alvarez has scored 21 goals in 33 complessive matches. As with any good striker, Alvarez’s finishing really stands out with an impeccable sense of the goal, having an impressive shooting rate; he is at his most lethal inside the penalty box thanks to his off-the-ball movement, anticipation and excellent technique.

His strength and physicality make him very adept with his back to goal game, also another of Alvarez’s best qualities is his heading.

At 1.80m, he may not be the tallest but has shown himself to have a great aerial ability, timing and a fantastic leap.

Aside from his physical and technical attributes, Alvarez is said to be a very humble and dedicated professional who spends time studying his game carefully.

Agustín Álvarez’s performances in the last six months have elevated him from an interesting prospect to one of the best young strikers on the continent, having a great potential to become a top striker and catching the eyes of the big European teams.
