Striker Kauà Elias has been named to The Guardian’s list as one of the most promising players in world football. As a striker for Fluminense, the 17-year-old is being treated as a talent that European clubs should be keeping an eye on.
-I am very happy to be on this list. It is a great achievement to be able to represent Fluminense and Brazil. Now is the time to keep my feet on the ground, focus and be humble so that I can perform better. “I thank the club, my family and everyone who helped me on this journey,” the athlete told Tricolor.
In the list of 60 names, Kawa Elias is one of the Brazilians, along with Endric, Luis Guilherme and Vitor Reis, who is the only representative of the Tricolor. One of the UK’s leading tabloids praised the promise.
Elias has all the qualities a striker needs. He is fast, strong and has a great ability to finish the ball with just one touch. He was the star of the Brazilian team that won the South American Under-17 Championship in Ecuador, and is also a key player in the U-17 World Cup in Indonesia.
In the current season, the player played 25 matches and scored 17 goals. In addition to defending Fluminense, the striker also plays for the Brazilian national team, with whom he won the South American Under-17 Championship.
