The 'new Neymar'? Ajax sensation Antony lighting up Champions League and dreaming of Brazil World Cup spot

The 21-year-old enjoyed a fantastic start to his senior international career with a debut goal and could well make the cut for Qatar

As Brazil continued their imperious march towards the 2022 World Cup in October, two players in particular stood out for the South American giants.

Leeds United's Raphinha had an immediate impact on the Selecao, scoring twice in three games and adding a further two assists to establish himself as a real contender for a seat on the plane to Qatar in just over a year's time. But the winger was not the only newcomer to leave fans clamouring for more.

If anything, Ajax gem Antony's rise has been even more meteoric than that of his compatriot over the past few months. At 21, he looks set to become the next scintillating young talent to jump from the famed Dutch club to the elite of world football.
