    Alves is the top scorer right now in the Dutch league with 18 goals in 20 games:eek: . Can anybody tell me more on him. And has he ever played for the NT at lower levels like the sub 19 or 20??

    Re: Alfonso Alves

    Great striker, again great scouting from Heerenveen, Fast, great shot, not a great technic, but he could become a great striker for a big team, Heerenveen asks 20 M euro's for him. He's one of the best strikers in the dutch league, maybe even the best (above Huntelaar (dutch international), Farfan (peru international), Kone (ivory international). GREAT PLAYER

    Never heard of him.
    Dunga should cap him quick to avoid the creation of another Deco.

    Re: Alfonso Alves

    well dunga will announce the team tomorrow for the portugal game. wouldnt surprise me if he's called up since we really only have Robinho worthy of a call up now...and that's even debatable. i expect adriano to get called up too since he has re-found his form it seems.

    so yeah...we'll see.

    Looks like he is pretty good with free kicks. I saw a couple videos of his goals and some were off of free kicks..

    He was great in Sweden, at first at Örgryte and then in Malmö, but there's a big leap from Allsvenskan to Eredivisie and his success surprises me. A great player though with a fine technique and a really nice eye for the goal.
