With the recently concluded FIFA world cup, football fans have been treated to a whole new young generation of football players, who have shown significant promise on the field.
Watching soccer and seeing these young talent on the field makes an average football fan very optimistic about the future of the sport. Here we have compiled a list of 8 promising strikers who have performed well in recent times and impressing us with striking capabilities. If you’re a fan of watching soccer, you need to keep an eye out for talent like the ones mentioned below.
Hailing from France, Eduardo Camavinga has been dominating the French leagues. To get an idea of how good he is on the pitch, Eduardo was awarded the player of the month in Ligue 1 before he even turned 18. In his first season in the Ligue 1, he impressed even the French National team coach Deschampn and he was even offered the spot in the team making him the youngest player to represent Les Bleus since 1914.
While, Bukayo Saka may not have played for his National team at the FIFA World Cup 2022, he is ready to get work done heading into 2023 football season.
Saka is skilled with his movements and possesses a highly inventive mind. He is also capable of emerging with a goal when it is required. In addition, his presence gives the other players the confidence that they can throw the ball to him in any circumstance and count on him to keep possession; if he isn’t on the squad, the football isn’t quite the same as we saw in the recently concluded FIFA World Cup.
Gavi respresent’s Spain’s next generation. Despite his lack of elite experience, Gavi emerged onto the forefront in 2021 and immediately established himself as a fixture for Barcelona and Spain. Despite only turning 18 in August, Gavi has already made 60 appearances for the Catalan giants. Barcelona took action to ensure his long-term future by awarding him a contract with a €1 billion release clause in September.
Gavi also won The Kopa Trophy. Jude Bellingham of Borussia Dortmund, Jamal Musiala of Bayern, and Eduardo Camavinga competed against Gavi for the prize, but Gavi prevailed. The award was previously won by Pedri, a teammate of Gavi’s at Barcelona, and it has also been given to Matthijs de Ligt and Kylian Mbappe in the past.
Pedri is one of Spain’s best upcoming talent and he is just 19 years old and has become the captain of the Balugrana midfield since moving from Las Palmas in 2019. He is currently one of the first players listed on Xavi’s squad sheet for every match. He is also the core to Barcelona’s total makeover.
He missed much of the previous season due to a hamstring injury, but Pedri is now back to his best and demonstrating why he is regarded as one of the best young players in the world.
Jude Bellingham is one of top talent from Bundesliga. The rising star already holds several records, including being the youngest first-team player in Birmingham City history at the age of 16, the youngest Borussia Dortmund goalscorer in history at the time of 17 years and two months, the youngest Englishman to start a Champions League game (17 years and 113 days), and the second youngest to score in the competition (17 years and 281 days).
The midfield dynamo, who scored his first senior international goal against the Islamic Republic of Iran in a 6-2 victory at Qatar 2022, is now also England’s second-youngest World Cup scorer. It wouldn’t be far fetched to say that most of the soccer matches that England played in last year’s FIFA World Cup, most tuned into catch him play.
Enzo Fernandez, 21, took the initiative to make a name for himself when he scored a magnificent goal in Argentina’s crucial World Cup match against Mexico.
Nonetheless, this youngster is regarded as one of the top young midfielders in the world and recently signed Chelsea.
He played for River Plate in his native country to polish his craft. Clubs were vying for his signing after 20 games with eight goals and six assists. He also is the part of the Argentina world cup winning squad. He was also awarded as the FIFA Young Player Award at Qatar 2022.
Of all the Real Madrid Players, Vinicius Jr likely has the ceiling that is the highest. He has shown off his incredible talent and brilliance this season, but I know it’s simple to point out his shortcomings, most notably his finishing and decision-making in the final third. It’s better to keep in mind how high his potential is and to wish that the young guy keeps developing as he is. He unquestionably has a sound mind, is enthusiastic, puts in a lot of effort, and is open to learning.
Vinicius Jr is so good that Carlos Ancelotti has praised him and called him Real Madrid’s most important player as they most recently defeated Liverpool 5-2.
Goncalo Ramos is the next breed of Portuguese talent. Most recently he started ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo for Portugal against Switzerland at the Qatar 2022. This shows how much trust Portugal have on Ramos.
Ramos enrolled in the Benfica academy at the age of 13, progressed through the illustrious development system of the club, and made his first-team debut in July 2020, scoring twice. He had been the leading scorer at the U19 European Championships in 2021 while playing for Portugal, which placed second.
He has scored five goals in Europe and nine in the Portuguese Primeira Liga in the last season One of the reasons Benfica was okay with losing Darwin Nunez to Liverpool was because of his progress.
