Team Canada has a few emerging stars in their squad, and one of them is Tajon Buchanan. A former player of New England Revolution, Tajon moved on to Club Brugge in the Belgium Pro League at the end of the 2021 MLS season. The 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup Best Young Player will surely go on to achieve more honors with both club and country. Let us take a look at his career.

Tajon Buchanan: Style of Play

Tajon has been adopted on either flank as he is adept with both feet, but his tendency to use his right means he is more direct when playing on the left. His ability to cut inside defenses from the left flank was highlighted with several bounce off passes playing for New England Revolution. With his pace, he can commit defenders and drifts past them with his superb balance. Ball retention is, arguably, one of Tajon most important assets, which is uncommon in most modern-day soccer wingers. Players that can beat a man with pace are usually pretty predictable, opting to go outside their man at most opportunities, not with Tajon. Crisp, sharp passing, and an incredible eye for killer passes, Tajon was snapped up by Club Brugge for his assist tally. Tajon could be a player to bet on in the player markets to receive the most passes in a game or the highest assists in a season. Check out the player markets including Tajon Buchanan at Betway here

Professional Soccer Career: Tajon Buchanan

Tajon Buchanan is still learning his trade and playing in Belgium for, arguably the nation’s best club, he will achieve his full potential. On paper, despite being an exciting prospect, he has only played half the amount of games as the two years younger, Alphonso Davies. Within that time, he has been recognised to be one of Canada’s most exciting young players, and as his professional career develops, he will become more refined.

Club Brugge Career

It is early days for Tajon, having started his Club Brugge career in January 2022. He will need to adapt to life in Europe, and once the dust settles, he could become a significant player for Club Brugge with his ability. Club Brugge are a club that demands results, and if he continues on the trajectory by which his career has started, he could shine in European competition. Watching Tajon, I think his ability perfectly suits the aggressive pace of the EPL. Could we see another Canada Men’s Soccer Team players in the EPL one day?

Team Canada Soccer Career

Tajon Buchanan has already helped himself to a handful of goals for the national team and is a regular starter since his introduction in 2021. Canada’s young stars are obtaining valuable international experience, which should strengthen the national side in the short term and as these players come into their physical peaks aged 27/28. Tajon should be one of these players with his ability. Learning in European competition will be imperative to his International career. Club Brugge are a side more than capable of qualifying for the Champions League, experience in the worlds’ biggest club competition will be valuable to both Tajon and Canada.

Tajon Buchanan Stats

Already with 10 assists and 15 goals in his 68 professional games for both club and country, Tajon is showing great signs. His ability to cut inside players at pace means he is capable of both creating and scoring goals. This young man could be a key player in Canada’s first World Cup Qualification in over 30 years, and if he has a good competition, he could be a player that can set his sights outside of Belgium. He will need to score more goals, but his career is in its infancy in Europe, which is a different breed of soccer to the MLS.
