Nélson Miguel Castro Oliveira first came to my attention last summer during the Under-20 World Cup, where he emerged as one of the stars of the tournament. He popped up again this summer when he played for Portugal at the Euro Cup. So I was pleased to learn that the lovely young striker (he just turned 21) will be playing in La Liga this season, on loan from Benfica. He scored a goal in the final minutes of his debut for Dépor today, ending the match against Osasuna 2-o.
