Lazar Markovic: 19-Year-Old Midfielder Shocking The World
When we think of the special players we see in Europe today, the names Gareth Bale, Eden Hazard, Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo come to mind. Why? Because they always seem to get the job down when it comes to scoring crucial goals to win games. Well, now we need to take a look at a young winger from Serbia who is beginning to take headlines by storm.
Lazar Markovic, 19, is already a Serbian international who plies his trade at the club level with Benfica of the Portuguese Liga ZON Sagres. He plays with a fearless style where he runs up and down the wing and takes on players without hesitation. He can also score a beautiful goal every now and then.
Folks, we always watch in awe when it comes to young talent who plays as if he has been on the field for 10 years. We know who our favorite players are, and we want to make sure that they stay as some of the best. However, it is alright every once in awhile that we turn our attention to stars from different parts of the world.
Some say Markovic will be one of the best players in the world in due time. This may seem far-fetched, but we have to realize that if the 19-year-old is playing with this type of confidence and success now, he can only improve if he can manage to stay healthy. Keeping an eye out for him will entertain both the casual and crazy soccer fan.
