    20-year-old Fedor Chalov with 6 goals through first 7 games. He has been very impressive dating back to last season.

    CSKA is in Champions League, so he has a chance to make an impression at top level.

    Edit: he had a nice assist today also, so not one-dimensional forward.

    Lopetegui needs to give him a shot in La Liga

    Rayan Cherki, a name to remember, has scored a goal in Lyon 4-1 win at City in Youth League.
    He's 15 year old, and 1 month.
    It's a new record.

    No idea why Vinicius Jr. is playing for a B team. He's had scenes like that in every game so far.

    As mentioned in the topic Unuvar who is 2 months older than Cherki also scored. Will be interesting to watch them both going forward.

    What is the plan with Vinicius Jr.?
    Why pay €50M to play him in the reserve? He is clearly above that level.
    He should play with the main team or loaned out at a good club to get more experience

    He should ask Odergaard what the plan is.

    Vinicius - Rodrygo - Paulinho, damn. This trident is borderline illegal at youth level.

    Gravenberch made his Ajax debut vs PSV sunday, making him the youngest Ajax player to have made his debut ever. He was still 15 in May. He surpassed Clarence Seedorf.

    Barca B talent Ballou Tabla committed to Canada today. Huge news for us as a Soccer nation. He is likely our second best prospect behind Davies.

    Nice!

    You heard of this guy?



    18 years old , 6 goals in his first 10 games for Gent. Not too shabby.

    Yeah!! Jonathan looks great too! Soccer is finally becoming more exciting as Canadian National team fan. Here's hoping they somehow qualify for 2022!

    Any way we can watch the older prospect lists? I can't find them anymore, but some of us (helicopter, @Evilo , me, Belgian Fan, etc.) made soccer prospect lists starting more than a decade ago.

    I’m not entirely sure where to put this but I’ve been to a few University of Denver(D1) games this year and they have this Brazilian striker Andre Shinyashiki who’s incredible. He’s scored 17 goals in 8 games. Now I know it’s college and not the best level but he looks like someone who could turn out to be a damn good MLS player.

    Yeah, I already was afraid that might've been the case. Thanks though.

    He also has now become Ajax's youngest ever goal scorer after scoring in a cup match yesterday. Mind, it was in a 7-0 win over a very poor opponent, but...

    I mentioned this guy earlier in the year, but Sebastian Soto has 9 goals in 8 games since joining Hannover U-19's. Prolific goal scorer. Scored 46 of them last year, which is the record in the U-19 division. He's been scoring prolifically as well for US junior teams. I think he'll be suiting up for Hannover's first team next season. Terrific scouting by Hannover. He could easily be at a bigger team. They also signed another young American this summer, Chris Gloster. Good scouting here, as well. Another who could've signed with a bigger team. Gloster's the youngest player in the reserve team this year. He skipped over U-19 level, even though thats his age-eligible team.

    @Duchene2MacKinnon

    Saw him play last month he's look fantastic, goes in hard on the tackle, passing is top notch and has a pretty hard shot. I don't remember the last time the NT had a player with his skill set. He just broke out for River too as a out an out starter. I have big hopes for him in the midfield even though it's very early. BTW he picked up an injury a few days ago and will not be playing in the up coming friendlies...

    What I would like to see is how creative he is and if he has the ability to break the lines with his passing. If he does we could be talking about an elite player.

    He and Ascacibar would cover a lot of ground defensively, just need to see if they can provide enough on the ball to make it work.

    I don't envision it being an issue. He might be too young to be a bonafide starter for the NT with Copa just around the corner. I'm hoping for a midfield of

    Lo Celso-Messi-Correa/Coco/RDP
    Ascacibar-Paredes

    So as I said then, Mbappe not 1st is hilariously bad.
