Updated: Jun 25
Many of the world's biggest football stars have announced that this is their last World Cup, entering the end of their careers, but don't need to feel too sad. Thinking of the last World Cup, Mbappe was 19 years old. Leading France to the championship, he became an instant hit, and now he has become a world-class football superstar. It is precisely because the players are always changing from generation to generation that we can see the competition getting more intense and unpredictable.
Now that the 2022 World Cup is approaching, will you be curious about which football stars will be at the forefront? Let me introduce you to several young next-generation football stars:
Number of appearances
Number of goals
Erin Harland (21)
Vinicius Júnior (21)
Alfonso Davis (21)
Ansu Fati (19)
Club and national team statistics for the 21-22 season
Erling Hallander " Super striker who is not allowed to play in the World Cup
Haaland, who is only 21 years old this year, is currently the youngest player to score 50 goals in the Bundesliga. He has won the 2020 European Ballon d'Or and is known as the best striker in the future because of his excellent ability. Become the focus of the next football.
Recently, he has attracted much attention due to the exchange of clubs. If you are paying attention to football news, you must have been washed by the news of his club change recently. Several well-known clubs such as Real Madrid and Barcelona have been rumored to be interested in it, and recently reached an agreement with Manchester City to transfer to it.
It is a pity that even if Haaland can score five goals in six World Cup qualifying games in Europe, the Norwegian national team he is in is weak, so we will not see his life in the 2022 World Cup.
Pedro Gonzalez Lopez » FC Barcelona's new generation of souls after Messi
The Spanish national team's 2022 World Cup roster includes a 19-year-old boy wearing a No. 10 jersey. He won the 2021 European Golden Boy Award. Everyone is more used to calling him "Pedri", and he is considered to be the best player in the world today. One of the top midfielders. He has been a fan of Barcelona Football Club since he was a child and admires Iniesta, the legendary midfielder.
In the 20-21 season, he attended almost all competitions and he was a football social animal, but at such a young age he was able to participate in so many important games, which also showed that he was very good. He missed the game due to injury for some time this season, but after his return from injury, he did not see any decline in strength, and his growth could not be stopped. It is generally believed that he has legendary midfielders Xavi, Iniesta, and Messi. The advantages of this, and he thinks that he has become the soul of the new generation of Barcelona after Messi.
Vinicius Junior » The genius who defied setbacks has become the best winger in the world
At the beginning of this year, the 21-year-old Brazilian player's worth soared to 100 million euros. At the time, he was one of the top three worthies in football (the previously introduced Haaland was also one of them), and he was also a post-00s generation. The first South American player of the new generation to be worth over 100 million. Vinicius is very skilled on the reel, and his speed is quite agile. At a young age, he has become one of the best wingers in the world today and is known as the new Neymar.
Brazil, which is expensive as a football kingdom, has always produced talents in large numbers, and Vinicius is even more special among the players born in the 2000s. Under the age of 18, you cannot transfer internationally, but his talent has attracted the attention of Real Madrid, who bought him in advance and started to cultivate him earlier. Coming to Real Madrid just after turning 18 didn't go smoothly, but as the saying goes, success is 99 points of effort and 1 point of talent. When he faced setbacks, he stepped up his practice, and only then could he blossom, which is what we see now. to the genius.
Alfonso Davies » World Cup Qualifications affected by a coronavirus
When it comes to Canadian star players, we have to mention Davis. In 2018, he was poached to Bayern Munich Football Club for 18.75 million euros. Although it may not be compared to many stars with super high transfer fees today, this deal is worth it. The transfer fee broke the MLS record. For Bayern, it seems like a treasure. Now he has become one of the best left-backs in the world, and his value has continued to soar.
Davies was only 19 years old when he first played in the five major leagues, and then he became Bayern's first-choice left-back in less than a year, helping Bayern win the Champions League through his greatest characteristics-speed and explosiveness.
Canada stepped into the 2022 World Cup final week, but unfortunately, Davis was diagnosed with Covid-19 when he was still competing in the World Cup qualifiers. After recovering, he developed myocarditis, which caused him to spend a long time recuperating. When he returned to the football field, he found that his ability was severely affected due to illness, but fortunately, he was only 21 years old this year, and he still has a long time to recover.
Ansu Fati » Whether he can play in the World Cup is worth watching
He is also a Barcelona player, and also a player for the Spanish national team, and is also only a 19-year-old talent. After Messi withdrew from Barcelona, the No. 10 jersey was alternately given to Fati. It can be seen that Barcelona had very high expectations for him. Fati lived up to Barcelona and played his talent to score many goals for the team.
However, many fans today do not have great hopes for him. Although he has extraordinary potential and does have the opportunity to become an indicator of future football, Fati suffered damage to the meniscus of his left foot at the end of 2020. Since then, the chances of participating in the competition have been greatly reduced. The reason is nothing more than the continuous recurrence of injuries. Even though he has a gifted offensive ability, he can always play good results when he comes on the court. Be realistic.
Among them, I think it is a pity that Ansu is very interested in the Spanish national team, but he is only listed on the 2022 World Football Team shortlist and has not played in the World Football Championship. Unable to play. Whether it is the national team or the club, many fans hope to see Spain's two major talents play at the same time in the future, and they also hope that Fati can solve his injury.
