The best team of players aged 21-years-old or younger.
The cliche states that football is a young man’s game and so rather than thinking of 40 reasons why we love Ryan Giggs, here is the ultimate starting XI made up of the best youngsters in world football.
We’ve defined ‘young’ to mean aged 21-years-old or younger.
GK – Maxim Koval, Dynamo Kiev – 21-years-old
Finding a candidate between the sticks was a tough task as traditionally goalkeepers mature later as footballers and recent starlets such as Thibaut Courtois and Marc-Andre ter Stegen have now turned 22.
However, Dynamo’s Koval is earning himself a fine reputation in Ukraine currently and looks to be a future regular for club and country.
