It’s fair to say that 2021 has already been a whirlwind of a year for Blackburn Rovers forward Ben Brereton.

The 22-year-old has divided opinions at Ewood Park since his £7million move from Nottingham Forest in 2018, but the last few months has since seen his popularity grow incredible amounts.

At the end of last season, a group of avid Football Manager supporters spotted that Brereton was eligible to play for Chile due to his mother’s roots. Fast forward a couple of months, and he is now a cult hero in South America.

Brereton, or Brereton Diaz as he is now known, was recently named in Chile’s Copa America squad before featuring against Lionel Messi for Argentina. He then scored his first international goal for his country, netting in a win over Bolivia last month.
