the next big thing?

1) Paulo Henrique, Paulo Henrique Ganso or Ganso

At Santos it is Neymar that receives most of the plaudits. The skill, hair style, teen pregnancy stories, wonder goals and tantrums are a journalist’s wet dream. However for the Brazilian national team, desperately searching for a future Number 10, the future development of the midfield playmaker Paulo Henrique ‘Ganso’ has probably more long-term significance.

Still only 21, this attacking midfielder has already been around the Santos first team for three seasons. In 2009, he received a nomination for the Brazilian Football Confederation award for "Breakthrough Player" of the season. Along with Neymar, Ganso was overlooked for the World Cup as the ever-pragmatic Dunga commented on his inexperience and how his style was too similar to Kaka’s.

Back at Santos last season’s departure of Robinho, and the arrival of Elano, appeared to coincide with a run of good form for Ganso which was rewarded with an international call up. However, recent injury has prevented him from being involved in Santos’ Copa Libertadores challenge and it may keep him out of the Brazilian Copa America squad. However, it hasn’t stifled interest from abroad with Chelsea, Spurs and most recently Real Madrid reported as showing an interest in a player who is now valued at a cool $50 million.

Lucas

Neymar might be the hottest property in Brazil right now but Lucas (Lucas Rodrigues Moura da Silva) must not be far behind. Aged just 18, and the star of Brazil’s recent South American youth championship success, the Sao Paulo youngest is already interesting Europe’s big clubs. Lucas, not to be confused with Liverpool’s Lucas Leiva, is an attacking midfielder who has been compared to both Kaka and Zico. After just a handful of competitive games for Sao Paulo his recent call up to the full national team appears somewhat flattering and highlights Brazil’s desperate search for their next midfield playmaker…

One player who stands out for me is Sandro. Although he has not been a regular starter for Tottenham this season, when he has come in he has performed admirably and I think he should be starting for a top club. Although he is unlikely to displace Lucas Leiva from the starting line-up, it would not be unthinkable for Sandro to play alongside him to provide a solid midfield base.

Well,according to me the next big thing of Brazil is none other than the Mercurial midfielder,Oscar. he has been inspirational and instrumental in his recent appearances with Brazil,playing a key role as a CAM .

Also,he had shown his defensive quality in match against RSA.

Oscar,only at 20,has a great future ahead and his move to EPL giant Chelsea FC will certainly add more experience in his kitty as he has to encounter world's best defenders.

I am pretty sure ,in spite of presence of Eden Hazard,Oscar will make into starting 11 soon. He is just a budding star and upcoming phenomenon for Brazil.

Oscar has been in great form since his move to Chelsea. Made the transition to English football well, though he's been more effective in the European games where he's scored some quality goals.

Hopefully it'll encourage more Brazilian talent to try England, but work permits are a problem aren't they?
