Nottingham Forest signed the unknown Brandon Aguilera during the summer and he’s getting the chance to play lots of football out on loan.
The playmaker signed for the Reds from LD Alajuelense but was immediately loaned out to Guanacasteca in the Costa Rican Premier League.
Aguilera has quickly become a mainstay in the team back in his homeland but his team are in truly dreadful form during 2022/23.
The player must be doing something right though. He won a third international cap in the early hours of this morning, playing the first 45 minutes for Costa Rica.
It was an experimental side that played against Uzbekistan but the team scored twice in injury time to claim a 2-1 comeback victory.
Costa Rica face a tough challenge in Qatar. They have been drawn in Group E alongside Spain, Germany and the burgeoning nation that is Japan.
Playing football is key for Aguilera during the current campaign. The youngster ticks a lot of boxes for a Dane Murphy signing and perhaps he will be monitoring him with intrigue.
He’s made nine appearances for his loan club, with Guanacasteca losing 10 games already during the current campaign.
Aguilera and his teammates sit bottom of their six-team league table and they will hope to revive their fortunes as the season progresses.
Forest signed Aguilera and he’s an intriguing player
The Reds will be closely monitoring the 19-year-old as he spends the season out on loan with the South American outfit.
Forest will have big plans for the player but ultimately they felt that his chances would be restricted during 2022/23.
The Reds signed Jesse Lingard and Morgan Gibbs-White to play in the number 10 role in the summer and loaning out Aguilera made sense.
In the short-term, the Forest-owned player won’t be bothered about results. He will simply want to play lots of football and force his way into the mix for a place in Qatar.
Forest could have a few players heading to the World Cup. Aguilera has bags of time on his side but getting that experience at such a young age could benefit the player considerably.
