1) Darwin Núñez: Uruguay & Liverpool

Only one player could be top of this ranking and that is Darwin Núñez. By netting against Bolivia in Miami and Bolivia in New Jersey, he had scored in seven successive international appearances, equalling the national record set by Héctor Scarone in 1927. Núñez's streak did come to an end as la Celeste beat USA 1-0 on Monday night, but he continues to be lively; no player has completed more dribbles at Copa América so far than Núñez's ten, according to Who Soccer on Twitter.

Uruguay will take on Brazil at Allegiant Stadium on Saturday night and, if they're to get through this quarter-final clash, they'll need their star striker to be at their best. Either-way, Núñez has been extremely impressive at this tournament, form Liverpool supporters will hope he can continue when the Arne Slot era commences in mid-August.
