Young Players Who Could Make Their Mark in the World Cup 2022


Some young players will be making their first appearance in the 2022 FIFA World Cup, which will begin on November 20 in Qatar. These are some of the top rising stars born around the year 2001, making some of them eligible for the FIFA Young Player Award in Qatar.

Jamal Musiala (Germany)

Jamal Musiala

Bayern Munich is a promising youth in the attacking midfield position for Bayern Munich, and will represent his country in the upcoming World Cup in Qatar. Musiala will play a pivotal part for Germany as they attempt to get over the heartbreak of the 2018 World Cup.

Musiala has been in fine form for Bayern Munich this season, contributing to 5 goals and 2 assists. Musiala has scored once in his international career for Germany since making his debut in November 2021. Musiala may get his opportunity to impress in Qatar now that ex-Bayern coach Hansi Flick is in control of the national squad.

Ansu Fati (Spain)

Ansu Fati

Ansu Fati of Barcelona has been hailed as a footballing prodigy. This left winger has been injured for the better part of the last two seasons, but ever since he’s been healthy, he’s been putting together solid performances on the field. Fati scored for Barcelona when he was just 16 years old.

Fati, a youngster at the age of 19, has only made four appearances for Spain’s senior national team since making his senior international debut in 2020. He has scored once but is generally regarded as a potential star.

He scored in his maiden international game, making history as the youngest player to ever score for Spain. If Spain is to win the World Cup again this year, Fati will be an essential cog in the wheel. Check our complete World Cup 2022 fixtures Singapore time schedule page.

Jude Bellingham (England)

Jude Bellingham

Center midfielder for the English national team, Jude Bellingham, made his debut in 2020 at the tender age of 17. Given that Bellingham’s departure from Birmingham City to Dortmund resulted in a then-world record transfer fee for a player under the age of 18 (at the time), his quality is clear.

Bellingham is Dortmund’s go-to scorer, as he has scored 19 goals and assisted 20 others throughout his time in Germany. Gareth Southgate, the manager of the English national team, will rely heavily on Bellingham.

Christian Pulisic (USA)

Christian Pulisic

Since the United States Men’s National Team did not qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, Christian Pulisic, who made his senior team debut six years ago, will be playing in his first WorldCup22 in Qatar.

During the preliminary rounds, Pulisic proved crucial to his team’s success. The 24-year-old forward has played professionally for Borussia Dortmund and Chelsea, so the United States will be counting on him to help them advance in the tournament. After only 52 games with the national team, Pulisic has already amassed an impressive 21 goals.

Alphonso Davies (Canada)

Alphonso Davies

With this being Canada’s first appearance in the FIFA World Cup finals since 1986, fans can expect to see a number of talented young footballers in action in Qatar. Fans should expect to see a lot of Alphonso Davies, one of the younger players in that group.

The 22-year-old left-back plays for Bayern Munich and has already won every club-level championship there is. It should not surprise fans to catch him at the World Cup 2022 livestream flexing his skills.

For the Canadian men’s national team, Davies’ Champions League victory is a first. Davies has made 34 appearances for Canada since his debut and has scored 12 goals. For a left back in this era, Davies is among the greatest.

Takefusa Kubo (Japan)

Takefusa Kubo

Takefusa Kubo has been dubbed “the Japanese Messi” due to his incredible playing ability. Simply being called “Japan’s Messi” is enough of an accolade to draw attention to Takefusa’s talents and abilities. Takefusa is an accomplished dribbler and skilled player who honed his craft at Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Takefusa played a crucial role in leading Japan’s men’s football team to the Olympic quarterfinals in 2020. Takefusa is one of the most famous Asian football players, and he will be competing in the World Cup in Qatar.

Vinicius Jr. (Brazil)

Vinicius Jr.

Brazil’s Vinicius Jr. has become a global superstar after signing with Real Madrid of Spain. The winger in attack is highly sought after for his lightning quickness and pinpoint accuracy in the goal. In his rookie season, Vinicius scored 22 goals and dished out 20 assists.

The 22-year-old has a knack for clutch performances, scoring in Real Madrid’s title-clinching triumph over Liverpool and in the Champions League semi-final against Manchester City. Vinicius is a fantastic young forward and one of the finest assets for the team with the best World Cup betting odds 2022.

Aurelien Tchouameni (France)

Aurelien Tchouameni

French midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni was reportedly among the most desirable players during the summer transfer window of 2022. Liverpool and Real Madrid fought tooth and nail to sign Tchouameni, but Real Madrid ultimately prevailed.

Though he is mostly a defensive midfielder, Tchouameni can also give in the attack and make plays in the final third. Tchouameni is a phenomenal player thanks to his strategic mind, technical prowess, innate sense of where to position himself on the field, and keen sense of goal. Tchouameni is a veteran of 14 international matches for France.

Ryan Gravenberch (Netherlands)

Ryan Gravenberch

Another star player from Bayern Munich, Ryan Gravenberch of the Netherlands, is expected to flourish at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. The 20-year-old midfielder had a successful run with Ajax, and former Ajax manager Erik ten Hag wanted to sign him with Manchester United. Instead, Gravenberch signed with Bayern Munich.

When it comes to running, passing, and Gravenberch’s other technical abilities, he shines. Apart from keeping an eye on this youngster, expect to find abundant World Cup bet offers for him and his team, too.

Nuno Mendes (Portugal)

Nuno Mendes

Nuno Mendes of Portugal, with his lightning-quick feet and deft touches, will be impossible to ignore. Mendes is a current member of PSG’s club team. Mendes is a current member of PSG’s club team. For the French powerhouses, the 20-year-old has contributed to four goals and two assists.

Mendes, who has appeared in 16 international games for Portugal since making his debut in March 2021, could play a pivotal role for Fernando Santo’s squad in Qatar.
