By Jeff Stinger

Uruguay is always a force to be reckoned with during international soccer competitions. The South American nation serves as a breeding ground for quality players. With all the talent that comes out of the country, Nitrobetting recognizes a talented young star that takes center stage in November. Without further ado, here’s the 2022 FIFA World Cup Player Spotlight: Federico Valverde.

2022 FIFA World Cup Player Spotlight: Federico Valverde

Heir to the midfield throne

One of Madrid’s emerging first-team players may prove his worth in the upcoming international soccer tournament in Qatar. He already demonstrated his value in La Liga following Zinedine Zidane’s second spell in charge. The former Madrid coach was the defining factor to which Valverde was capable of bringing balance to a team that has often flourished in the final third but is vulnerable at the back.

Valverde can be deployed in numerous positions, and to that extent, he has outplayed Martin Odegaard and Marco Asensio throughout the years. More than that, he is considered the future of a midfield that will eventually fill in for both Modric and Kroos.

Positive developments

Valverde can shine on the wings, which is not a natural position for Uruguayan. We’ve seen him put in excellent games since joining the club. Some predicted less playing time from him since Rodrygo found his form and is poised to have an even better season. However, the former Club Atlético Peñarol player can do some damage from the forward position.

Although competition is tougher in this position with the likes of Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, and Dani Ceballos dominating the area, Federico packs enough punch to develop into an even better player in the coming years. The man from Montevideo already made an excellent start to the season. The rest of the weeks leading up to November will determine how decisive his role will be to The Sky Blue.

Leader in the making

One man who becomes an invaluable role for Real Madrid features in Nitrobetting’s 2022 FIFA World Cup Player Spotlight: Federico Valverde. The Uruguayan can play on both the right wing and midfield and showed flashes of brilliance on multiple occasions. This goes to show how much confidence Carlo Ancelotti has in the 24-year-old.

In seven games so far this season, Valverde already has two goals and two assists to his name. Unsurprisingly, Madrid fans and bettors have been impressed with what Valverde delivered. This could give us a glimpse of his future leadership at the La Liga side.
