Argentine Lionel Scaloni won the Art Prize, given annually by the Uruguayan newspaper El País.
The Brazilian Pedro Guilherme was crowned this Wednesday the new “King of America”, an award given annually by the Uruguayan newspaper El País to the best player on the continent.
Meanwhile, Argentine coach Lionel Scaloni also stood out in his category and was crowned the best coach of the year 2022.
The thirty-seventh edition of the poll “América responds to El País” received the votes of 218 journalists from the region, of which 68 voted in favor.
In this way, the striker surpassed his teammate Giorgian de Arascaeta, with only four votes, and the Argentine Julian Alvarez, with 34, who thus hands over the crown he wore the previous season.
Is this how Peter was formed?
Born in Rio de Janeiro in June 1997, Pedro Guilherme started his career at Fluminense and joined “Mingao” in 2020, after passing through the Italian club Fiorentina.
In the 2022 season, he won the Copa Brasil by beating Corinthians 6-5 on penalties in the final and the Copa Libertadores by beating Atlético Paranense 1-0 in the final.
He also played in the World Cup in Qatar with the national team and became a 12-step definition in the quarterfinal match in which Brazil was knocked out by Croatia.
