These Youngsters Are Going To Be The Next Big Thing In Football

There is no way I can talk about the future of football without talking about the past and the present. Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have held the world's attention for over a decade. The goals between just these two players are over a thousand.

Unfortunately for football fans, their time playing football is drawing closer to an end. So now it is for them to pave the way to the new generation of footballers who may take their crown and hopefully achieve more than they have.

Kylian Mbappe.

Mbappe currently plays for Paris Saint Germain as a forward. The French national was born on 20th December, 1998. He's the most promising to topple Messi and Ronaldo out of their throne. As of 2018, Kylian earned a stunning amount of 17.5 million EUR. 

Erling Haaland.

Haaland is the next choice because he has been making head waves in the football world. The Norwegian striker was born on the 21st of July, 2000. He plays as a centre forward for Borussia Dortmund and has 34 goals in 38 games.

Mason Mount.

Some fans have even called him the next Frank Lampard because of his style of play. The England national plays for Chelsea FC and was born on the 10th of January, 1999. 

Vinicius Jr.

Vinicius has been doing really well in the absence of Eden Hazard. The Brazilian winger plays for Real Madrid and was born on the 12th of July, 2000. He has won Player of the Week in the Uefa Champions League amongst other top players.

Phil Foden.

Phil Foden born on the 28th of May, 2000. Foden plays for the England national team and Premier League club, Manchester City. In this 2020/2021 season, Phil Foden has 6 Premier League goals and 3 Uefa Champions League goals.

Jude Bellingham.

The youngest on the list as he's aged 17 years old. Jude was born on June 29, 2003. He's a midfielder for Borussia Dortmund and has made 24 appearances for the club. He also has 1 Champions League goal.

These youngsters are very talented on the ball and are going to be making top headlines in the future.

Would you like to add anyone else to the list?
