Players like Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Buffon are getting a little old (well, for Football standards) so, now, we need to be on the lookout for the guys who seem to be the next generation of players to come to the spotlights of all football competitions.
Phil Foden (18 Years Old, Manchester City)
Foden is one of the greatest promises for English Football. Not so long ago, he commanded the English sub-17 team and was awarded best player on the tournament. He’s a very creative midfielder that almost never loses the ball. Foden has made his debut on his club.
Ferran Torres (18 Years Old, Valencia)
Just like Foden, he was highlighted as one of the best players at the sub-17 FIFA World Cup, and Valencia, in Spain has promoted him to their first division team. Torres is outstanding on his speed, his dribble and control of the ball. Lots of teams will be chasing after him this summer.
Jadon Sancho (18 Years Old, Borussia Dortmund)
Despite Guardiola’s insistence, Sancho decided to abandon Manchester City and sign up with Borussia. He’s an extremely fast, with a near-perfect dribble player. He also has a high game vision and seems to always keep the goal on his crosshairs. He has already debuted with Borussia and has everything within his grasp to be a great player.
Ben Woodburn (19 Years Old, Liverpool)
Woodburn made history with the reds when, last season, with only 18 years of age, saw the goal line for the first time and surpassed Michael Owen’s record on being the youngest there. Liverpool renovated his contract and they hope his career has a huge success, we certainly hope to see him. Reds boss Jurgen Klopp seems to be a huge fan of Woodburn, and praises him in every chance he gets.
Dayot Upamecano (20 Years Old, Leipzig)
This is a strong french midfielder. He’s a specialist on getting the ball out of his defense zone into the precise lanes, thanks to his perfect aim. Besides, he is a very smart player and even at his young age, doesn’t get nervous on any situation. Several teams are trying to get him on their teams.
Patrick Cutrone (20 Years Old, Milan)
He’s one of the sensations of Italian football. He’s been climbing up positions and has earned the trust of the fans by scoring goal after goal. One of his strong points are his dribbles without the ball that create opportunities. He’s a constant danger on the zone, because of his strong definition, accuracy and power when it comes to destroying his rival’s goal line.
Kylian Mbappé (19 Years Old, Paris Saint-Germain F.C)
With only 19 years of age, Kylian Mbappé, has broken the game. With over 16 honours to his namet, from FIFA World Cup Best Young Player Award: 2018 to the FIFA World Cup Dream Team: 2018, In July 2018, Mbappé was given the number 7 jersey for the upcoming season with Paris Saint-Germain, quite an honour if we remember who wore it before him, Lucas Moura.
