While there have been matches played in competitions like the UEFA Euros and the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers, South American football fans were being treated with some fantastic football in the Copa Libertad ores, the continent's version of the Champions League.

One of the players who took the competition by storm is Franco Di Santo who was able to find the back of the net over two legs for his Argentine club side San Lorenzo. The club eventually secured a two-legged aggregate win over Chilean team Universidad de Chile, whose star player, Angelo Henriquez was unable to perform up to expectations.
Di Santo and Henriquez are names that have been heard in the English Premier League before, even though a lot of the league's fans would have a hard time remembering them. While Do Santo signed for Chelsea back in the summer transfer window of 2008, Henriquez officially became a Manchester United player in 2012.

When both players were at both Premier League clubs, they were regarded as exciting talents and mesmerizing wonderkids who were expected to hit the league and make a name for themselves.

Before moving to England, both players had already established themselves as youngsters with huge potential in South America, but just like sometimes players, unfortunately, struggle to find their feet in a new league, they were unable to make their way to the first-team setup of their respective clubs.

It was not entirely expected of them to make a hit in England immediately, but playing for big clubs like Manchester United and Chelsea makes it hard for a player to get enough time and patience because all eyes would automatically be on you.

However, both Di Santo and Henriquez have revived their careers and are making waves in South American football currently.
