Mexico has a long-standing tradition of producing world-class footballers. From Javier Hernandez (Chicharito) and Jorge Campos to Rafael Marquez and Hugo Sanchez, the list goes on. SSC Napoli winger, Hirving Lozano also owns a spot in the list. But now, they’re looking for the future generation to bring the country’s success in world football and then, the very first name that comes to our mind is definitely of the LOSC Lille midfielder, Eugenio Puga Pizutto.

Primarily a defensive midfielder, Pizzuto was first spotted at the age of 12 back in 2013, by scout Jess Ibrom of the New Zealand-based Asia-Pacific Football Academy during the open trials that were held in the city of Monclova, Mexico. Following his exemplary performances, Pizzuto was offered a place in the academy along with a scholarship to the prestigious Scots College in Wellington.

Though he wasn’t able to get any game time with Wellington Phoenix due to FIFA laws according to which, transfer of minors weren’t allowed. So, he returned back to his country and joined Pachuca in 2018 but, it was in the year 2020, when made his proffessional debut for the Mexican side in the Copa MX Group Stage match against Ascenso MX club, Venados.

Four days later, he also made his Liga MX debut when he came on as a 59th-minute substitute for Franco Jara in an eventual 3-0 loss against Club León. Though, just nine minutes after coming on, Pizzuto broke his fibula and dislocated his ankle after getting his foot caught on the pitch in that game.

In August 2020, he signed for Uber Eats Ligué 1 side, LOSC Lille but hadn’t been able to get any play time after his signing. He was included in the first team squad for only a single game and ended up as an unused substitute.

Still, his game sense isn’t unknown to the football fans of the Land of Aztecs. He has already been a receiver of a couple of individual accolades including FIFA U-17 World Cup 2019 Bronze ball France Football FIFA U-17 World Cup 2019 Best XI. Eugenio Puga Pizutto is a player who has all the blocks to improve himself in each and every aspect of a pitch perfect defensive midfielder. Can he become the Einstein in midfield of the Land of Aztecs?
