The guy is outrageous! Joao Felix overwhelmingly praised for his debut dazzles


Atletico Madrid striker Joao Felix received a big round of applause for his outstanding performance during their 1-0 victory against Getafe on Sunday at Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.

Atletico striker Alvaro Morata scored the lone goal and missed a penalty as his team began the La Liga campaign with an eventful win in a match that saw both sides reduced to 10 men.

Morata gave Atleti life in the 23rd minute when he nodded home a fine cross from English Keiran Trippier after making several advances.

But lighter moments came in the second half when Atletico’s new signing Joao Felix made a superb run which led him to winning a penalty but Morata’s spot-kick was saved by Getafe’s David Soria.

This sent fans into a frenzy and many were left praising the brilliance of the Felix in the pitch, declaring that he is worth the fee he was signed for.

Felix was signed from Benfica on 3 July 2019 for €126 million (£113 million) on a seven-year contract. He is the fourth-highest ever paid in football and the second-highest for a teenager after Kylian Mbappe.
