Das Wonderkid

Forget Cristiano Ronaldo, Thierry Henry, or Ronaldinho.
A new star is set to rise on European football.
Matias Fernandez is the name of this gem unearthed in Chili, and he was voted best player in South America for 2006 as he helped Colo Colo win the South American equivalent of the UEFA cup.

He has now joined Spanish side Villareal during the January (2007) transfer window, and if he lives up to the expectations, it would not be a surprise if he commands a move to a big European club very soon.

Keep watching for him!!!
