As typical Argentine strikers go, Maxi Lopez fits the bill perfectly. A fast and wily footballer, Maximiliano Gaston Lopez has set the world of football ablaze with his touch. In 1997, Lopez found his place in the youth academy at River Plate. After 5 years in their youth academy, River Plate decided to bring him into the first team and so, a 17 year old Lopez made his senior debut.

Despite not scoring more than 10 goals in his 50-odd appearances, Lopez stood out even amongst seasoned veterans and Spanish Giants FC Barcelona came calling. They were looking at the youngster to replace the evergreen Henrik Larsson in their lineup. Despite scoring against Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League on his debut for the club, Lopez could never break into the first team regularly and in 2006, left for Mallorca on loan.

In 25 games, he scored twice and that meant that his days at Barcelona were over. Lopez moved to Russia where he signed for FC Moscow and in 2008, he signed for Gremio on loan.

At the International level, Lopez played almost 30 games for the Argentina Under-20 team and scored 9 goals.
