Andrija Zivkovic

The 19 year old Serbian winger is a very exciting player who is already a first team player at his club Partizan Belgrade who loves to cut inside on his stronger left foot from the right and can score from long distances. Not only that he loves to find his teammates as he has great vision and phenomenal dribbling ability. He has already been captain for his club before and has been capped at the highest level with Serbia becoming the youngest ever to appear for his nation when he was 17.

Hakim Ziyech

The 22 year old Dutch born attacking midfielder who committed to playing for Morocco internationally is basically carrying his club FC Twente this season by grabbing a goal or assist in 10 out of 14 games played with 10 goals and 4 assists. His strengths are his ability to shoot from distance, ability to create something out of nothing by using his outstanding vision, but best of all is his free kick ability where he prefers to place them over power and aims for the top corner.

Joe Gomez

London born Joe Gomez is a Defender who can play in any position in the defense and is 18 years old and plays for Liverpool whom he signed with this season in the summer. His style of play is he likes to dribble a lot and likes to play the ball short to his teammates. He is very pacey and that helps make him effective when he is asked to play in the fullback role for his club or nation. He already has accomplished things in his young career winning the U-17 Euros with England in 2014 only conceding once the whole tournament and being in the team of the tournament. After playing consistently early in the season he suffered an injury that will make him miss the rest of the season and he will look to develop and win a first team spot when he is back.

Matt Miazga

The Polish-American central defender who plays for the New York Red Bulls has been one of the best defenders in the MLS this season and at the age of 20 is looking like a very good talent. He has played with the Polish and American youth teams but it looks like he will commit to the Americans as he has only played at the U18 level with Poland while he has played at the U18, U20, and U23 levels with the United States and will most likely receive a senior call up soon if he keeps playing at a high level. The best parts about his game are his ability in the air which makes him a threat on set pieces and his ability to tackle but he needs to work on his discipline as he can do stupid challenges giving away a lot of free kicks doing so. He has won the Supporters Shield twice with the Red Bulls in 2013 and this year and will be looking to win the MLS Cup as his team are strong favorites this year.
