Rising Football Stars Under The Age of 20

 article about Rising Football Stars Under The Age of 20
Football fans can expect good things from the crop of youngsters who seem to be taking the football game by storm. The boys showcase pure and raw talent as they wait to break through top clubs all over the globe. Some of the next generation stars across the continent yet to hit 20 include:

Gianluigi Donnarumma, 18 (AC Milan, goalkeeper)



It is quite impressive for a person to start a game for AC Milan at 16 years. To do this as a goalkeeper is just another story entirely. In most cases, goalkeepers usually bloom when they are much older. At 18, Gianluigi has better skills than most, and it would come as a surprise if he does not take the position of the best goalkeeper in the globe within the next few years. He is a sublime shot stopper who commands his area and has the abilities of an adult.

Moise Kean, 17 (Juventus, forward)

Born in February 2000, the 17-year-old Italian is the first player born in this century to make an appearance at Champions League as well as Serie A in one season. He plays as a forward for Juventus, a team that does not have an excellent record of bringing in young players. Although clubs usually have reservations when it comes to letting young stars play, it has been a different case for Moise Kean as his gift made the coach throw him into the deep end to play with the big boys. He says that he is used to playing with older players. He had an impressive record scoring in 24 out of 25 games for the youth team last season.

Kylian Mbappe, 18 (Monaco, forward)

In the middle of his breakthrough season, the young star has managed to get the whole of Europe talking. People are saying that he will be the next Thierry Henry because his capacity on the pitch is similar to the former French national. Mbappe is a fantastic full forward who comes inside using his stronger foot. It could be the reason he has an incredible record of ten goals in the twenty-one appearances this season. The Premier League has noticed his skills, and they want to sign him.

Gabriel Jesus, 19 (Manchester City, striker)

Although people were making fun of his surname when he made the transfer to City, he shut people down with his award winning performance. It only took two appearances to make Manchester City's first team. The Sao Paulo Born striker fits perfectly in the young forward line. His injury came as a big blow after scoring three goals in four games. City hopes that he will come back stronger and better setting new records for the forward position.

Ben Woodburn, 17 (Liverpool, forward)

Currently the youngest goal scorer in Liverpool, Woodburn was supposed to play with the under 16s last season. His skill set saw him spend a lot of time with the under 18's. Ben has played for the under 23s this season where he scored against Leeds in the EFL cup. This performance goes to show that he is on his way to becoming part of the seniors. It would be a great idea for Klopp to include him in the first team regular because it seems that he has impressive skills to bring to the table.

Ousame Dembele, 19 (Borussia Dortmund, forward)

Since joining from Rennes, Ousame has become a valuable team player of Borussia Dortmund. He is an exceptional forward who is incredibly efficient in regards to goals and assists which is not something that many young players showcase. This season he created 44 chances which made way for nine goals. It is quite impressive, the reason why may compare him to Cristiano Ronaldo. He has exceptional control over the ball as soon as it lands on his feet. He is a star in the making, and you should expect to see his name in various sports headlines all year round.
