Future Watch: Lautaro Martinez Soccer Cards, Inter Milan – Though he just turned 23 in August, Lautaro Martinez is already well known as a dangerous attacker for Italian giant Inter Milan. The young man from Argentina arrived at Inter in 2018 and has made an impact.

Martinez is now in his third season for the Nerazzurri. He had six goals and two assists in league play in his first season. Last season (2019-20), Martinez tallied an impressive 14 goals and three assists in helping Inter to a second place finish in Serie A, just one point behind champions Juventus. So far to start this campaign, Martinez has picked up a goal in each of Inter’s first two league fixtures.

There is much to admire about Martinez’s skillset. He shows a lot of flair in his attacking style and it is with purpose. His ball handling is excellent and he can unbalance and beat defenders in a number of ways. He has a strong right footed finish and is a smart footballer.

Martinez’s two goals so far this season in Serie A were similar. He calmly slotted the ball home from the top of the 18 with his right foot against Fiorentina and Benevento. There was no rushing the shots nor trying to “do too much”. Both were fluid, smart and unstoppable plays.

As for international duty, Martinez made his debut for Argentina in March 2018 against Spain. He scored his first goal for his country later that year in a friendly against Iraq. In September of 2019, in a friendly played in Texas, Martinez had a hat trick in a 4-0 win over Mexico.

Have a look at Martinez’s strong international play here:

Martinez’s strong play so early has meant that a decent amount of cardboard is already available. He made his debut in 2018-19 in Donruss and Trebleand has since been included in 2019-20 Chronicles and other series. There’s no question that the soccer world will keep their attention on Martinezwhich should lead to a very competitive card market.
