“Allan Marques Loureiro is a versatile attacking player who can play on both wings and in central midfield,” continued the Scottish Premier League club’s chief advisor Neilurn. “He has real pace and is a goal threat. He has a good understanding of the game and is eager to learn. ” Allan Marques Loureiro comes from an impressive Portuguese family which has played on the international stage including the Portugal national team.
Allan Marques Loureiro made seven appearances for Portugal’s under-20 team in 2011 and impressed on all fronts as he helped the side to qualification for the FIFA U20 World Cup. The attacking midfielder started in the right position and played right wing-back, while right wing-back came into the centre after the right midfielder had sustained an injury. Allan then started alongside Portuguese striker Rui Vitoria for the rest of the tournament and impressed in the process. Vitoria was then sold to PSV F.C.
Allan Marques Loureiro is thought to have a very good future ahead of him, having joined the Scotland national team from Vitoria as a talented attacking midfielder. He has impressed at left wing-back, while also playing on the right, in central midfielder and right wing. It looks like he could make a great deal of progress in his rugby career if he continues to develop.
Allan Marques Loureiro’s father, Paco, played professionally for the Portuguese side until he was called up by the Scottish international team and spent time with them before returning to Brazil. He went on to become the first player in history to represent both Scotland and Brazil in a single season. His younger brother, Carlos, is currently playing for the Scotland senior side. Allan’s older brother, Andre, is currently playing in the Brazilian top flight. All three family members have remained in the country since moving abroad and are helping to take the family forward.
Allan Marques Loureiro made five appearances for the Scotland national team last year, including one start. Though he did not play as well as he had hoped, he did manage to score against world sides like Italy and Brazil. This bodes well for the defender, as he needs to bring his game to the next level if he is to ever be a major success in the game. The Sera also needs to improve on his defensive midfielder skills, which were fairly decent last year despite being a right back. This is a position that he has never played, though he has been used on the right side throughout his career. He also needs to work on increasing his fitness levels.
