Who is Myron Boadu? 

At 15 years and 7 months, he made his debut with the AZ subsidiary. It took 23 minutes to score. In his first nine games, Boadu pierced rival networks six times. He was a regular in the U17 selection, even younger than most of his peers, which led the AZ to renew him until 2023 so that no one would tempt the new gem of his quarry. He had exploded on a scoring level and in January 2020 he would go to the Europa league’s Knockout phase, a very tempting showcase for the continent’s most important clubs. Considering that he was the youngest player of his selection, the only one born in 2001. The AZ could not afford an unexpected escape and successfully anticipated to shield him. 

Myron Boadu has become one of the proper names for Eredivisie’s start-up. He is the starting forward of AZ Alkmaar, a world-class player to stay the least. 

What is Myron Boadus’ style of play? 

He plays as a nine although he has also played on the left-hand, whilst drawing rupture moves on the back of the opposing defense. He’s fast, whilst knowing where he is all the time. His positioning and natural goal instinct are surreal. His style of play can be compared to that of Anthony Martial of Manchester united, due to his quick feet to dribble pass his opposition defenders whilst knowing how to score. 

What are Myron Boadus’ strengths? 

Myron Boadu is one of the recent prospects who will be featured in the 2020 Euro championship. This is due to his amazing abilities and strengths. His main aim is to secure the win for his team, and this is due to his clinical finishing. He plays a different style and possesses strength within himself. His determination, stamina and work rate will enable him play tirelessly and effectively for the whole of the 90 minutes. A dedicated striker and nightmare for all defenders is how we can describe the Dutch striker. 

What are Myron Boadus’ weaknesses? 

It is the wish of the players that they are efficient in all areas of the game; even their fans have the same wish. Following Myron Boadu over the years, we have concluded that he does not possess the defensive traits of the game. The question on the analysis is; How fair is it to compare the stats of a striker with that of a defender? I will let you answer that within you and let you see the pure gem in action at AZ Alkmaar. A clinical and world-class striker. 

Myron Boadus’ Stats Analysis: 

Current season (19/20) 

Myron Boadu has started all the possible matches and playing the (nearly all) the full 90 minutes; whilst leading the goal scorers table. At just 18-years-of-age, he is playing absolutely world-class, however, this does not come to a surprise. He is a star within the Eredivisie, a gem for the game. Only a handful of players did what Myron is doing, what a joy to see him play. All the credit to AZ Alkmaar, for trusting fully in their youths. They are developing and giving their players all the necessary exposure. Myron Boadu has contributed in 29 goals this season (Scoring 17 and assisting 12) in only 28 appearances! He is just 18! Just 18 years of age! That is absolutely mind boggling!  

More on Current Season:

This is Myrons’ second third full season, however, last season the last two seasons where plummeted by two big injuries. This fact makes it even more impressive as he came back with a bang; leading the top scorers table. All of this at just the age of 18! We run out of words when we come to describe Myron Boadu’s talent. He is that big. Myron Boadu is a world-class player. We have seen glimpses of Myron in the past. We have seen him humiliating Eredivisie defenders in the past. However, this season really brought Myron to life.  

Apart of being a deadly striker, he is a team player; as stated he assisted 12 this season and he is still leading the table. How? How is he only 18; coming from two big injuries and still being able to lead the top scorers table, whilst being a truthful team player? How is it even possible? Myron Boadu. Even if you forget his name, he will still be making headlines. He will help you remember the name. He is having a mega season; however, he has been playing at this level for a couple of seasons, so it is no surprise that he is booming as soon as the opportunity arises.  

  • Leading the top scorers Eredivisie table 
  • National Senior team debut (with a goal) 
  • Just 18 years of age 

Myron Boadu’s Career Analysis 

We are witnessing a new generation. Myron Boadu will be one of Europe’s and one of the world’s best players. We do not have enough words to describe how good he is. Myron has been playing at this level since his youths, thus his imminent promotion to the senior squad. He came from a couple of big injuries and still performs at that high level. How is it even possible? Myron defies what’s possible. He is an absolute world-class player. Having played for Netherlands youths (Categories – U/15-U/21) and then got promoted to the Senior team. All till the age of 18.  

These are the ingredients of a world-class player. Only a handful sort of done what Myron did. He is out of this world – off the scales. He’s already making headlines, however, be sure to be hearing more about Myron as that is what Myron Boadu is all about. He defies what is possible.
