With the Euro set to kick-off on Friday, we take a look at the young players who are expected to impress this summer.
Anthony Martial - France
After his move from AS Monaco to Manchester United, many expected Martial’s enormous transfer fee of £36million to be heavy on his shoulders but the player arrived banging on the doors of opponents. Scoring 18 goals in all competitions in his first season at United is not a bad feat either. Anthony finished the season by winning Young Player of the Year at United.
Kingsley Coman - France
At the age of 19, you’d be surprised how much Coman has already won. The player moved to Bayern Munich to win the German league and cup, having previously won the league and cup in Italy and France. He’s just 19!
Marcus Rashford – England
Now talk about a way to announce yourself to the world. A brace on your Man United and Europa league debut, followed by another brace on your Premier League debut… A goal in your first Manchester derby, two goals against Arsenal and a goal on your first match for England’s senior team. Better yet? The kid was born on the 31st of October, 1997.
Leroy Sane - Germany
Sane comes from a family of athletes. His mother is a former German Rhythmic Gymnast Champion, his father is a former Senegalese international, Sane has all it takes to make the stage his own at the Euros. Fast, skillful and has a good shot on him, the Schalke man will be looking to impress.
Dele Alli - England
1 year ago, Alli was at MK Dons in League One. Today, he’s the PFA’s Young Player of the Year and will probably start for England at the Euros. This is the stuff of dreams.
Honorable mentions include Switzerland’s Breel Embolo, Belgium and Liverpool’s Divock Origi, Portugal’s Renato Sanches and Julian Weigl from Germany. These are our picks, what are yours?
