2018 Best 50 Teenagers In Football – 2018 NxGn

Popular sports website Goal.com has released the 2018 Best 50 Teenagers In Football. This list of teenagers are the best of all young players who are born on or after January 1, 1999. Many of the names in this list are still very much unknown. Some are partly known while few of them appears to have been around for a very long time. One of those is Ac Milan teenage goalkeeper sensation: Gianluigi Donnarumma.

Gianluigi Donnarumma was the winner in 2017 and still features in this list of 2018. This shows you he’s been around on the big stage more than some of the other names on the list. However, Justin Kluivert, son of Netherlands legends Patrick Kluivert has usurped him and taken first position for the year 2018.
