  2. Rauno Sappinen http://footballtalentscout.wordpress.com/2013/12/08/rauno-sappinen/ Country: Estonia Date of birth: 23/01/1996 (17 years old) Place of birth: Tallinn (Estonia) Height: 1,75m Club career: Flora Tallinn Current national team: Estonia U-21 Position: winger, attacking midfielder Preferred foot: right Market value (by transfermarkt.de): 100,000 € Contract until: unknown Similar type of player: Koke Football is one of the most popular sports in Estonia, although no minor honour has been achieved. Their “hall of fame” isn’t impressive too, but there are few Estonian players that are recognizable by fans from all around the world, such as Andres Oper, Mart Poom, Raio Piiroja, Joel Lindpere or Ragnar Klavan. Flora’s Rauno Sappinen is a talented youngster who is able to reach their level and join them in the future. He made his first-team debut on 2nd March 2013 in a league fixture against Tallinna Kalev at just 17 years of age. He quickly won a place in the starting XI and ended his first Premium Liiga season with 23 matches and 5 goals scored which is obviously a great result for such a young footballer. He represented Estonia national teams on U-16 and U-17 levels. Now, he is one of the youngest members of “Blueshirts” U-21 team.
  3. Carlos Strandberg http://footballtalentscout.wordpress.com/2013/12/07/carlos-strandberg/ Country: Sweden Date of birth: 14/04/1996 (17 years old) Place of birth: Sweden Height: 1,85m Club career: BK Hacken Current national team: Sweden U-17 Position: winger, secondary striker, striker Preferred foot: left Market value (by transfermarkt.de): — Contract until: 31.12.2017 Similar type of player: Adriano Carlos grew up in Backa, Gothenburg where he joined the local lower league side Backa IF as a six year old. In 2005 the club merged with Hisingstads IS to form Hisingsbacka FC which is where he stayed and eventually got to make his first team debut in the seventh tier of Swedish football at age 15. In 2012 he signed a youth contract with Gothenburg based Allsvenskan club BK Häcken. There he became the top goalscorer of the U17 league and was moved up to the U19 team at the end of the year. In 2013 he continued scoring goals for the U19 and U21 teams which in the summer resulted in Häcken signing him to a 4,5 year first team contract. He made his debut at the age of 17, during current season on 7th July 2013 in a league fixture against AIK Stockholm, replacing Nasiru Mohammed after 84 minutes of the match. So far he played 10 matches and scored 3 goals at the top of the Swedish football league system. He was also a member and a very effective substitute of Sweden national team at FIFA U-17 World Cup, where “The Blue-Yellow” won the bronze medal. It is worth mentioning that despite being very tall and powerful forward Carlos has very good dribbling, technical and motor skills that allow him to play behind the main striker or even on the wing.
  4. Hamza Sakhi http://footballtalentscout.wordpress.com/2013/12/06/hamza-sakhi/ Country: Morocco/France Date of birth: 07/06/1996 (17 years old) Place of birth: France Height: 1,74m Club career: LB Chateauroux Current national team: Morocco U-17 Position: winger, attacking midfielder Preferred foot: right Market value (by transfermarkt.de): 100,000 € Contract until: 30.06.2015 Similar type of player: Samir Nasri Hamza is regarded as the biggest talent in LB Chateauroux at the moment. Everyone in the club are counting that he will soon make a debut in the first team, but this may prove to be impossible, because Moroccan wonderkid is on the radar of Europe’s big clubs, including giants Atletico Madrid and Chelsea wishing to sign the player before he turns eighteen. He was also a member and one of the leaders of Morocco national team that participated at African U-17 Championship 2013 and FIFA U-17 World Cup 2013.
  5. Nikola Zivotic http://footballtalentscout.wordpress.com/2013/12/04/nikola-zivotic/ Country: Austria Date of birth: 26/01/1996 (17 years old) Place of birth: Austria Height: 1,83m Club career: FK Austria Wien Current national team: Austria U-17 Position: winger, secondary striker, striker Preferred foot: right Market value (by transfermarkt.de): — Contract until: 30.06.2015 Similar type of player: Marko Arnautovic Nikola is a yet another player from a very talented generation of Austria Wien and one of its biggest hopes for a better future, right next to Sascha Horvath, Dominik Prokop, Marko Kvasina or Petar Gluhakovic. This season is one of the most succesful seasons for him – he has thus far scored a lot of goals in the Austrian Jugendliga, UEFA Youth League and at the FIFA U-17 World Cup, where the Austrians failed to progress from the group stages. His standout goal is perhaps the one against Canada, which has been nominated by FIFA as the best goal of the tournament.
  6. Nicola Murru http://footballtalentscout.wordpress.com/2013/12/01/nicola-murru/ Country: Italy Date of birth: 16/12/1994 (18 years old) Place of birth: Cagliari (Italy) Height: 1,80m Club career: Cagliari Calcio Current national team: Italy U-19 Position: centre back, left back Preferred foot: left Market value (by transfermarkt.de): 2,000,000 € Contract until: 30.06.2014 Similar type of player: Stefan Radu Nicola is a graduate of Cagliari. In July 2011 he was promoted to first team squad. However, only made his debut on 20 December 2011, in a 0-2 home loss against Milan. However, he became “Rossoblu” first team player only this season. He is one of the biggest revelations of Serie A recently and thanks to this much stronger clubs than Cagliari, such as AC Milan or Juventus, are strongly interested in buying the talented left back, but despite that not so long ago Murru extended his contract with Cagliari. He represented Italy on U-17 and U-18 levels, now he is a member of “Squadra Azzurra” U-19 team.
  7. Stefan Velkov http://footballtalentscout.wordpress.com/2013/11/30/stefan-velkov/ Country: Bulgaria Date of birth: 12/12/1996 (16 years old) Place of birth: Sofia (Bulgaria) Height: 1,90m Club career: Slavia Sofia Current national team: Bulgaria U-21 Position: centre back, right back Preferred foot: right Market value (by transfermarkt.de): 200,000 € Contract until: unknown Similar type of player: Andrea Ranocchia Velkov is a Slavia Sofia boy, where he has been playing since he’s been a little child. He made his first-team debut on 27th July 2013, at just 16 years 227 days of age, coming on as a substitute for Hristo Yaney in a 0-0 away draw in the league against Cherno More Varna. Despite his age, he is a regular in the “White Avalanche” first team as well as Bulgaria U-21 national team, where he is the youngest player. He is considered to be one of the most talented defenders in Eastern Europe, which did not escape the scouts from the top league, who are regularly coming to see Stefan, although it seems that it would be better for his development for now to stay and play regularly at Slavia.
  8. Fran Brodic http://footballtalentscout.wordpress.com/2013/11/28/fran-brodic/ Country: Croatia Date of birth: 08/01/1997 (16 years old) Place of birth: Zagreb (Croatia) Height: 1,80m Club career: NK Zagreb, Dinamo Zagreb (from 2011) Current national team: Croatia U-17 Position: winger, secondary striker, striker Preferred foot: left Market value (by transfermarkt.de): 150,000 € Contract until: 08.01.2015 Similar type of player: Davor Suker Fran joined “Hitrec-Kacian”, the famous Dinamo Zagreb youth academy, in 2011, at the age of 14. Before he was NK Zagreb player and it’s worth mentioning that he was chosen as best player of the famous tournament for U-16 players – Nike Premier Cup in Budapest. He scored 4 goals and he shared first place on the top scorers list even though NK Zagreb was eliminated in quarterfinal versus Fenerbahce. Dinamo have won the race to sign talented younster with many top European clubs, including Arsenal, Inter or Manchester United. He already made his first-team debut for “The Blues” on 14 April 2013, as an 85th-minute substitute in a 2–0 win at home to Inter Zapre¹iæ in the Prva HNL.

  9. Jinty Caenepeel http://footballtalentscout.wordpress.com/2013/11/26/jinty-caenepeel/ Country: Belgium Date of birth: 18/07/1996 (17 years old) Place of birth: Belgium Height: 1,75m Club career: KAA Gent Current national team: Belgium U-19 Position: winger, secondary striker Preferred foot: right Market value (by transfermarkt.de): 200,000 € Contract until: 30.06.2014 Similar type of player: Jesus Navas The impact of Belgian football is all around us. Their national team, with quality players such as Thibaut Courtois, Eden Hazard, Kevin de Bruyne or Romelu Lukaku, is tipped to be the main dark horse of rapidly approaching World Cup 2014 in Brazil. And that’s not all because there is another talented generation (players born in 1995 & 1996) that starts to play regulary and bedazzle experts and fans in Belgian Jupiler League. One of the most interesting is certainly Jinty Caenepeel. This gifted winger started his career at KV Oostende, but moved to Gent at the age of 15. Before the current season, former Gent coach Victor Fernandez gave youngster a chance to train with the first team. Hard work in training has not gone unnoticed and thanks to that Jinty made his debut for “The Buffalos” on 19th October 2013 in a league fixture against Lokeren, replacing Cesar Arzo after 79 minutes of the match. In the past he represented Belgium on U-15 and U-17 levels, now he is part of “Red Devils” U-19 team.

  11. Tomas Vestenicky http://footballtalentscout.wordpress.com/2013/11/24/tomas-vestenicky/ Country: Slovakia Date of birth: 06/04/1996 (17 years old) Place of birth: Topolcany (Slovakia) Height: 1,75m Club career: FC Nitra Current national team: Slovakia U-19 Position: secondary striker, striker Preferred foot: right Market value (by transfermarkt.de): — Contract until: unknown Similar type of player: David Villa Tomas in one of the biggest talents in Slovakia at the moment. He already made his professional debut for FC Nitra in a league fixture against FC Spartak Trnava on 13 September 2013. He was a star and one of the leaders of Slovakia national team at FIFA U-17 World Cup, in which his 5 goals allowed him to become the 3rd top goalscorer of the tournament. Unfortunetely, Slovakians lost with Uruguay and failed to qualify for the quarterfinals and ipso facto Vestenicky couldn’t improve his goalscoring record. It is also worth mentioning that few weeks ago he made his debut for Slovakia U-19 national team. There were rumours recently that he is on the wishlist of AS Roma because “Giallorossi” director of football Walter Sabatini is a huge admirer of Vestenicky’s talent.
  12. Caio Rangel http://footballtalentscout.wordpress.com/2013/11/23/caio-rangel/ Full name: Caio Rangel da Silva Country: Brazil Date of birth: 16/01/1996 (17 years old) Place of birth: Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) Height: 1,72m Club career: CR Flamengo Current national team: Brazil U-17 Position: winger, attacking midfielder, secondary striker Preferred foot: right Market value (by transfermarkt.de): — Contract until: unknown Similar type of player: Jeremy Menez Since he was a child, Caio had a big dream – make a debut in Flamengo first team. It is possible that this dream will become a reality sooner than anyone ever expected. He is considered to be the greatest talent from “Rubro-Negro” academy since the appearance of Adryan, another “Fla” wonderkid. He was a mamber of Brazil national team during FIFA U-17 World Cup 2013, in which despite a good start, “Canarinhos” were eliminated unexpectedly already in the quarter-finals. Although he was a little in the shade of Nathan, Gabriel Boschilia or Mosquito, but He showed his best side and was certainly noticed by experts and scouts from around the world.
  13. Ryan Thomas http://footballtalentscout.wordpress.com/2013/11/18/ryan-thomas/ Country: New Zealand Date of birth: 20/12/1994 (18 years old) Place of birth: Auckland (New Zealand) Height: 1,74m Club career: Melville United, WaiBOP United, Ole Football Academy, PEC Zwolle (from 2013) Current national team: New Zealand U-20 Position: winger, attacking midfielder Preferred foot: right Market value (by transfermarkt.de): 150,000 € Contract until: 30.06.2014 Similar type of player: Miroslav Stoch Thomas is considered to be one of the biggest talent in New Zealand currently. Many clubs were interested in him and he decided to further his career and moved to Netherlands, where he follows in the footsteps of Ivan Vicelich and Fred de Jong, two other notable Kiwi players to have cracked the top Dutch league. He made his league debut on 2nd November 2013 in match against giants PSV Eindhoven, in which he played very well and was generally praised by fans and experts. His position at club becoming stronger and stronger so he should break into the first eleven of Ron Jans side very soon. He is also a star of New Zealand U-20 team that won OFC U-20 Championship 2013. Few months later Ryan and his teammates participated in the FIFA U-20 World Cup 2013 in Turkey, but were simply not good enough and were eliminated already in group stage.

He was a real “goal machine” in the youth “Las Chivas Rayadas” teams. It is true that he didn’t make a debut in the first team yet, but this seems to be just a matter of time before that happens. He was a member of Mexico national team squad that finished second at FIFA U-17 World Cup 2013, which took place a few weeks ago. Unfortunately he wasn’t coach Raul Gutierrez first choice, Alejandro Diaz was “El Tri” main striker during during the tournament, nonetheless Marco turned out to be a very effective substitute and even scored a very nice goal in the semi-final against Argentina.

Unfortunately, at recently terminated FIFA U-17 World Cup Russians were unable to repeat this kind of success and were eliminated already in the Round of 16.
  16. Yassine Ayoub http://footballtalentscout.wordpress.com/2013/11/10/yassine-ayoub/ Country: Netherlands/Morocco Date of birth: 06/03/1994 (19 years old) Place of birth: Al Hoceima (Morocco) Height: 1,74m Club career: FC Utrecht Current national team: Netherlands U-21 Position: defensive midfielder, centre midfielder, left midfielder Preferred foot: left Market value (by transfermarkt.de): 100,000 € Contract until: 30.06.2016 Similar type of player: Esteban Cambiasso Another great talent from FC Utrecht youth academy.

Since his early years, he has shown huge talent and all the best teams in Brazil would like to have him. As a 16-year old, he signed a deal with Sao Paulo which has caused an uproar amongst the fans of his former club, Gurani. The world learned about him at the FIFA U-17 World Cup where he played very well and scored 6 goals and made 3 assists in 4 games. Brazilians seemed to be the favorites to win the title, but Boschilia was suspended for the quarterfinals due to yellow card accumulation and without him, the Canarinhos have failed against Mexico. Despite that, this left-footed “fantasista” is certainly one of the winners of this tournament and you can expect his debut soon in the Campeonato Brasiliero.
  18. Valmir Berisha http://footballtalentscout.wordpress.com/2013/11/07/valmir-berisha/ Country: Sweden/Albania Date of birth: 06/06/1996 (17 years old) Place of birth: Albania Height: 1,82m Club career: Halmstads BK Current national team: Sweden U-17 Position: secondary striker, striker Preferred foot: left Market value (by transfermarkt.de): — Contract until: unknown Similar type of player: Robin van Persie Valmir was born in Albania before moving with his family to Sweden when he was two.

Sofyan is his younger brother, perhaps even more talented than the ex PSV and Venlo player. He'd played since his early years at Utrecht, although he has not yet made his debut in Eredivisie. Despite that, many clubs have shown interest, including Arsenal. It is also said that Arsene Wenger is a big fan of his talent. Youth Dutch national team coach has made enquiries about him, but he is currently playing in the Morocco U-17 national team and did very well at the U-17 FIFA World Cup, while his team, has won the group, but unfortunately lost with Ivory Coast in the knockout stages. He is a very versatile player - he can play as a number 10 or on either side of midfield, but perhaps he feels the best as number 6, thanks to his technique and footballing intelligence, he can have a big influence on his team.
  20. Odp: Nathan (Nathan Allan de Souza) - Brazilian U17 Midfielder Nathan is fantastic. Boschilla, Mosquito, Abner and Caio are great prospects too !

The next big thing from black and white side of Belgrad should be very gifted midfielder Andrija Zivkovic.He came through “Youth School Belin – Lazarevic – Nadoveza”, Partizan famous youth academy. Andrija made his debut for “Crno-Beli” at the age of 16 on 28 April 2013 in a league fixture against Novi Pazar, replacing Darko Brasanac after 65 minutes of the match that ended in a goalless draw. He had a truly impressive start to current season scoring 4 goals in four matches and making himself a first-team regular at Vuk Rasovic side. There is no doubt that if he keeps progressing the way he has been in past few years he will leave Serbia before his 20th anniversary like two of his ex-teammates who left Partizan during the summer – Lazar Markovic (Benfica) and Aleksandar Mitrovic (Anderlecht). Serbia national team manager Sinisa Mihajlovic called him up or a friendly match with Japan, which takes 11 October in Novi Sad and if he will get a chance on the pitch he will break the Mitar Mrkela record by 37 days becoming the youngest player to debut in the jersey of the national team.
