Top 10 Best Young Talents Promising to Shine in the 2022 World Cup
Who will be the best young player at the World Cup 2022?
Gavi, Vinicius Junior, Jude Bellingham... are among the remarkable young players who can compete in the 2022 World Cup and shine.
These 10 young stars are all rookies for the World Cup finals in Qatar, but their talent and form is confirmed at the national team level and also at the world's biggest clubs.
1.Vinicius Junior (22 years old - Brazil)
The young striker scored the only goal to help Real Madrid beat Liverpool and win the Champions League season 2021/22.
In the 2022/23 season, Vinicius maintained an impressive performance with 9 goals in 17 matches.
In recent comparisons, people have even rated Vinicius higher than Neymar in some respects, such as a sense of discipline or speed. Vinicius has also long been in charge of a pivotal role at Real, where coach Carlo Ancelotti no matter how he applies tactics or changes the game scheme, Vinicius always meets expectations. If there is a vote on the new star (in the sense of never having attended the tournament) most worth watching at the upcoming 2022 World Cup, it is almost certain that Vinicius will enter the "top 3", regardless of his own professional views or opinions. of voters!
This 22-year-old striker with Neymar and Antony became the hope in Brazil's attack in the 2022 World Cup.

2.Jude Bellingham (19 years old - England)
Bellingham shines in Dortmund's 2022/23 season with 7 goals in 17 matches in all competitions, although this player has a knack for playing midfield.
In the most recent series of international matches, when the England team proved to be lackluster, commentators pointed to Bellingham as a rare bright spot and said that he was considered successful in competing for a place in the World Cup. Bellingham's advantage is that he always has the opportunity to play and shine in the Bundesliga, in Dortmund's shirt.
If he maintains the same form as under the club shirt, Bellingham can become an important card for England in the 2022 World Cup.
3.Gavi (18 years old - Spain)
The young Barcelona midfielder has just won a double title of "Golden Boy" and "Kopa" (best under-21 player in 2022). At the age of 18, Gavi became the mainstay of Barcelona with 64 appearances from 2021.
Spain coach Luis Enrique appreciates Gavi's ability and sees him as the future of the team. Spanish football fans expect this guy to shine at the 2022 World Cup.
|Gavi won't be the only young Spanish star vying for the young player award, his teammate and fellow teenager Pedri could light it up too. |
Pedri is already an Olympic silver medallist, unable in the end to match Messi and Guardiola, but could he and Gavi inspire a next-gen World Cup victory for Spain?
4.Aurelien Tchouameni (22 years old - France)
In the context that Paul Pogba and N'Golo Kante are both absent from the 2022 World Cup due to injury, Tchouameni becomes the hope of the French team in the midfield.
Real Madrid's €80 million contract plays more and more mature and won the trust of coach Didier Deschamps.
5.Antony (22 years old - Brazil)
In addition to Vinicius Junior, Brazil also has another potential young striker, Antony. Man United's rookie adapted quickly and scored 3 goals in 6 Premier League games this season.
Antony's technical background is not inferior to Neymar's and promises to be a new element of the team that won the World Cup 5 times.
6.Jamal Musiala (19 years old - Germany)
Forever candidates to lift the World Cup, the four-time winners Germany always have a young ace in the pack who steps up at the big one.
One of Germany's brightest young talents at the 2022 World Cup is Musiala.
In the 2022/23 season, the midfielder scored 7 goals and contributed 4 assists after 11 matches for Bayern Munich. Musiala's high form helps this young star have more opportunities to debut in the World Cup in coach Hansi Flick's squad.
19 years old and with the world at his feet, he's excited about Germany's chances in the Middle East.
7.Takefusa Kubo (21 years old - Japan)
Real Sociedad's young player has just been named in the preliminary focus list of the Japanese team for the 2022 World Cup.
Hailed as the 'Japanese Messi' when he was coming through Barcelona's famed 'La Masia' academy as a teen prodigy, Kubo ended up signing for Real Madrid in 2019, but failed to force his way into the team.
After loan spells at Mallorca, Villarreal, Getafe, and Mallorca again, he finally went on a permanent move to Real Sociedad in 2022.
With sackloads of skills, searing pace, and dribbling ability that does remind you of a young Messi, Kubo has the talent to both decide games and delight fans.
He scored Japan's first goal against South Africa at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and went on to net in their first three games but was disappointed not to win a medal at home as they lost their semi-final to Spain after a Marco Asensio extra-time screamer and then the bronze medal match to Mexico.
But Take's performances proved that he is a leader in this team and capable of doing it on the world stage.
With many years of experience playing in La Liga for Mallorca, Villarreal, Getafe and Sociedad, Kubo promises to become the expected face of the Asian representative in Qatar.
8.Ricardo Pepi (19 years old - USA)
Besides Christian Pulisic, Weston McKennie and Giovanni Reyna, Pepi emerged as a remarkable young talent of the US team in the 2022 World Cup.
Pepi has a knack for being a striker and has scored six goals in eight appearances for Groningen in the Dutch league this season.
With 16 goals in 2020/21 with FC Dallas in the MLS, German side Augsburg brought him to the Bundesliga in January 2022.
But when the 19-year-old striker failed to score in 15 Bundesliga appearances after his move to Europe there was some concern.
9.Pape Matar Sarr (20 years old - Senegal)
Senegal has given the world a host of quality football players of the dimension of El Hadji Diouf and Papa Bouba Diop, with global names like Sadio Mane and Kalidou Koulibali currently ruling at Bayern and Chelsea.
And Pape Matar Sarr is a name growing in resonance after an impressive 2020-21 season for Ligue 1 side Metz earned him a move to Antonio Conte's Tottenham.
Tottenham's young talent is part of the Senegal team that won the CAN 2022.
Playing well in both central and attacking midfield positions, Matar Sarr is considered one of the most potential "conductors" of Senegalese football in recent years.
10.Alphonso Davies (22 years old - Canada)
Alphonso Davies' incredible story started in war-torn Liberia from where his parents fled to Canada as refugees in 2005.
Football, or soccer as they call it in Canada, was his first love and at just 14 years of age he joined the MLS' Vancouver Whitecaps FC Residency.
The Bayern Munich left-back is an inspiration to the young generation in Canada when they won the Champions League in the 2019/20 season.
The feat of leading the group in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers in the North Central America region of Canada has a great contribution from Davies.
|Davies became the first Canadian men's national team player to win the Champions League, inspiring a generation of young Canadian football fans, and subsequently helping take his nation to their first World Cup finals in 36 years.|
