Ahead of the upcoming Euro 2020 tournament, we take a look at four of the brightest teenage talents that could make a serious impact for their respective national teams. The problem with young footballers is anticipating their performance levels is about as predictable as a spin on a crazy vegas roulette or any game on usa online casinos. In this list, we believe we’ve selected four young players who will deliver if given the chance at this upcoming tournament.
Jude Bellingham | England
Jude Bellingham is the youngest player to make our list of teenagers who have the potential to enjoy a brilliant run at the upcoming European Championships. In 2020, the 17-year-old relocated to Germany after completing a surprise transfer to Borussia Dortmund. Despite his young age, Bellingham has featured heavily for Edin Terzić’s side, making 46 appearances throughout the 2020/21 campaign. After just three England caps he’s now in the squad for Euro 2020 and could actually get some game time in what isn’t the most stacked England midfield. If he does, expect Bellingham to light up the tournament as he has been doing in the Bundesliga all season.
Jamal Musiala | Germany
Jamal Musiala was at the centre of a tug of war between Germany and England who both wanted the young prospect to align with them ahead of Euro 2020. The 18-year-old played for both nations throughout his youth career but ultimately opted to pursue an international career with Germany. Despite his young age, Musiala has managed to break into a strong Bayern Munich team. The attacking midfielder made 37 during the last campaign, impressively scoring seven times including a goal against Lazio that made Musiala Bayern’s youngest goal scorer in Champions League history. Musiala will be hoping to add to a terrific season by adding to his two Germany caps at Euro 2020. It remains to be seen if he’ll be able to work his way into Joachim Low’s side.
Pedri Gonzalez | Spain
Pedro Gonzales who is better known as Pedri played 37 of 38 La Liga games for Barcelona this season at just 18-years-old. The central midfielder scored four times and assisted his teammates on six occasions throughout the campaign. Pedri was a shining light in what was otherwise a disappointing season for Ronald Koeman’s side who only walked away with on trophy for their efforts. Unfortunately for Pedri he has the tough job of breaking into one of the strongest midfields in world football. Thiago Alcántara, Sergio Busquets, Rodri, Koke, and Fabian Ruiz are all vying for a place in the Spanish midfield along with Pedri. Usually, if someone is good enough for Barcelona, they are good enough for the Spain team. Pedri will no doubt do a good job for his country, it’s just if he’ll be given the chance ahead of his more experienced teammates at Euro 2020
Ryan Gravenberch | Netherlands
The 19-year-old has enjoyed a breakout season at Ajax. After making 10 Eredivisie in the previous two seasons, Ryan Gravenberch made 32 this time around and 47 in all competitions. Gravenberch contributed effectively from the Ajax midfield to score five goals. So far in his Netherland career, Gravenberch has been utilized as an impact player, often coming off the bench for his national side. He’s very capable of impressing from this position and one good cameo could cement his permanent place in the Dutch midfield.
Which of these four teenagers do you think will have the biggest impact at Euro 2020?
