    Arnaud Souquet


    Arnaud Souquet is a 17 year old French central midfielder currently playing for French club Lille. He is a fairly robust character and moves around the pitch very well. He started off his youth career at his local club CO Vincennois. This is the same club whom has produced the likes of Yacine Brahimi and Blaise Matuidi. He soon left the club for Lyon and was straight away thrusted into into their reserve team side at the ripe age of 16 years. Since then he has come leaps and bounds and has eventually made it into the Lille first team line up.

    His first match for Lille came in the 5-1 thrashing in the Europa league against Czech side Slavia Prague. He played the full 90 minutes in that match. He played a very impressive game and picked up a goal in the 88th minute. He has since only playing in one league game since and that was against Rennes. He started the match and played 45 minutes. Ever since the return of some midfield players he has been dropped back to the bench. Arnaud Souquet is also apart of the French U-19 squad, he represented France at the U-17 world cup.

    Arnaud Souquet is currently not on the database but hopefully with a couple more appearances added to his name he can get added. He is a great talent and really come 2 years time i fully expect him to be starting in the Lille first team.

    David Alaba


    David Alaba is a 16 year old left winger currently under contract at German giants Bayern Munchen. This kid is regarded as Austria's brightest talent but he also has the option of playing for Germany. He is the youngest player to ever feature for Austria Wien at 15 years old in a friendly :eek:. His first club was SV Aspern but then his father realised that he had great footballing talent and enrolled him in the Austria Wien youth department which ended up being a great move for the youngster. He then moved to Bayern in a controversial deal which saw Austria Wien get little money for him. This move has proved to be great for the youngster as he has featured in every single minute for the Bayern Munich U19s scoring 3 goals. Despite being 16 he is an ever present figure in the Austrian U17 squad playing over 17 matches for them. Looks like a great future talent and the fact that he is only 16 and playing constantly for the Bayern Munchen U19s shows that he is destined for greatness.

    Quick Summary

    Name: David Alaba

    Age: 16

    Club: Bayern Munich

    Previous Clubs: Austria Wien

    Interview/footage of David


    Number 7 on the left

    Has been called up to the senior Austrian team. He will probably make his debut tomorrow against France. If he makes his debut for the NT does he still have to play 450 mins to get added to the DB??
