The Premier League has big names that stand out from week to week. However, in recent times, Neal Maupay has managed to get more assiduously among the figures of each date in the English first division. This past Sunday, the Brighton forward was the great figure of his team in the victory by a resounding 3-0 against Newcastle as a visitor.
Maupay was the author of two of the goals of the group of Las Gaviotas. In addition, he gave assistance in the remaining conquest. The first goal came four minutes into the first half through a penalty kick with great safety. It took him only three minutes to put his team up 2-0 after pushing a center that came low from the right into the net. Almost on the closing he gave the pass for the Irish Aaron Connolly to seal the win.
South American blood runs through the veins of the Brighton attacker, because his mother was born in Argentina. In fact, the 24-year-old footballer from Versailles applied for nationality a few years ago, which would allow him to play for the National Team led by Lionel Scaloni if he is called up. Although he was mentioned on some occasions to the youth teams in France, that would not be an impediment to eventually join the albiceleste cast.

A Boca fan and admirer of Carlos Tevez, Sergio Agüero and Lisandro López, Maupay has stated on some occasion that he would “think about it” if a call came from the AFA to join the national team. For the moment, Brighton fans are enjoying their goals after the club paid € 22 million for their pass last year.
The Las Gaviotas team had lost their first game of the season, but this Sunday they recovered with the triumph in which Maupay shone. It should be remembered that, after two dates, Leicester, Everton, Arsenal, Liverpool and Crystal Palace lead the positions with ideal scores. This Monday, Wolverhampton could join, which will host a Manchester City that makes its debut in the competition.
