Who will be the best young player at the World Cup 2022?

Many young stars are making their mark on the game of soccer. We look at five players who may be the top choice to emerge, and you can read more about them here.

5. Jamal Musiala – Germany

Born: 2003

Club: Bayern Munich

The Germans are always a young team, and no one has been able to break down the German wall.

With a five-goal, four-assist Bundesliga performance to start the season. There’s no wonder there is so much hype around Belgian winger Jamal Musiala.

Nineteen years old, Alejandro Gutiérrez is an avid soccer fan and is excited to watch Germany in the World Cup.

A month later, Musiala said that the team had moved in the right direction and was on the excellent way. They dominated England with a 1-1 draw on September 10th.

The game against England in the Nations League was encouraging because it showed the team’s development. The team is ready for England during the World Cup if they meet them during the qualifying rounds. It won’t be an easy victory for anyone who takes on Qatar in Doha.

4. Antony – Brazil

Born: 2000

Club: Manchester United

Another weekly football game is upon us, and Antony has been in the spotlight recently. With a record-breaking move, many people have started to wonder what might be next for him.

United kicked off the Premier League season with consecutive wins, but Liverpool walked away with a point in their match at Upton Park.

Jordan plays as an inverted winger for Manchester United and cuts onto his favored left foot as he comes in from a right-wing position. But he is also versatile enough to play across the front line.

His main barrier to becoming the breakout star of the 2022 World Cup might be the competition he’s up against on his team.

3. Vinicius Jr – Brazil

Born in 2000

Club: Real Madrid

He was a crucial player in los Blancos’ record-breaking season. Scoring a goal every two games while scoring 22 goals and being named Champions League Young Player of the Season.

So far, in his first nine games, Vini’s been able to tally up five goals and one assist. It seems he has no plans to slow down anytime soon, either.

A significant reason for that has been the partnership of Neymar Jr. and Gabriel Jesus. The two have played 382 games in their illustrious careers, with the duo reaching five finals. Winning three competitions and reaching another semi-final.

Vini has seen tremendous success as a player and achieved incredible feats on the court, but his World Cup could be his.

2. Jude Bellingham – England

Born: 2003

Club: Borussia Dortmund

With four goals in four Champions League matches, Dortmund is at the top of the pack this season. And all signs point to Jude Bellingham being a potential breakout star.

A 16-year-old Birmingham City striker made his first-team debut in the 2019/20 EFL Cup, becoming the youngest player to play in the tournament. Youngest ever Borussia Dortmund goalscorer with a goal at age 17 years and nine months. Making him the second youngest Englishman of all time. Some young Englishmen to score in the Champions League are Duncan Edwards, Wayne Rooney, and Jermain Defoe.

Bellingham is keeping up with the fast-paced nature of the industry these days and making a rush for top spots.

An influential and dynamic midfielder who drives a team forward, he could be the key to a talented England team at the 2022 World Cup.

“He’s so strong, I don’t even know how to put it into words,” says his current coach Edin Terzic. “I’m trying to figure out when he will hit a wall.”

1. Gavi – Spain

Born: 2004

Club: Barcelona

One of Xavi’s young talents is currently rebuilding Barcelona. There is so much expected from this talented and exciting prospect, especially after his performance in the Copa Del Rey final.

Gavi has been successful in his career and had a perfect season with the Israelis, which led to him receiving the MVP for the Israeli national team. They later went on to win the 2022 Ballon d’Or gala, which awarded Gavi with players under the age of 21 who had excelled that year.

His successful and rapid development towards Barcelona’s starting squad got him noticed by many sports players, including his coach, Xavi, who knows a bit about bossing the middle.

After Gavi was announced as the best start-up team in Europe, Xavi commented.

“I’ve seen him train hard every day for many years. It’s down to his work ethic, discipline, and high level of heart that have enabled him to be the best player in the game. He is a lot like me in this aspect – because he has heart in his legs.”

Gavi isn’t the only young Spanish star vying for the young player award this season; his teammate Pedri could also light it up. You might get even more of a stir if he plays with Gavi in their UEFA champions league match this week.

It looks like Spain won’t be taking home the gold in this year’s Olympics, but they still have a shot at the next-gen World Cup with new star footballer goalies.

We can’t wait for you to see what’s in store.
