Hojlund: The Dazzling Star of European Football in 2023

Hojlund has burgeoned into one of the most scintillating talents in European football in 2023. Despite only celebrating his 20th birthday in February, he has already netted 15 goals for his club and country this calendar year.

Hojlund’s style of play mirrors that of Erling Haaland, using his towering 6ft 4in stature to dominate defenders and adeptly hold up the ball. Gian Piero Gasperini, Atalanta’s head coach, had compared Hojlund to himself a few months prior.

In the words of Gasperini, “Hojlund has this spirit, energy, intensity, but also technical quality that is just remarkable. He still has so much margin for improvement, too. He has very similar characteristics to Haaland, not just his face. He is so quick, he’s under 11 seconds over 100m and that’s not even trying very hard.”
