Don Balon list of 101 top young players is out

LINK

Forrest and Wanyama are both on it.


Coolest name by far is Granit Xhaka. Must be a rock at the back.

I got to see Chris Forrester play for St. Pats when I was living in Europe. He was easily the best player on the field. It will be interesting to see how he fares in a bigger league.

I remember watching this kid play for one of Brazil's youth sides a year or so ago and was very impressed.

Actually he's a central midfielder for Borussia Mönchengladbach, similar to Kevin Strootman or Michael Bradley: box to box, physical, and hard working.

Besides the obvious ones, these guys are going to be very, very good IMO.

EDIT: The correct first name of the "Georgian messi."
EDIT 2: why are all good, young, and small talents the next messi?

Sad that they mention the "Japanese Messi" (lol) but not Ben Lederman, who torched the Barca youth teams before he started training at La Masia.

This dude looks legit.

There are a few Liverpool players not on that list that I'm surprised about. Coady, Coates, Morgan and Wisdom all are better than Pacheco (who is on the list).
