This article ranks the finest young Brazilian talents in the game of world football today.
The nation is a fine producer of excellent players, with a long history and a broad talent base to select from. Naturally, with a home World Cup on the horizon, a wide range of players are being considered for a spot with the Selecao.
Not all of these youngsters will be in contention next summer, but those who aren’t will watch on hoping that their day will one day arrive. I have taken 21 as the cut-off point, meaning that stars such as Juan Jesus, Douglas Costa and Ganso have not been considered.
For Brazil, considering this list (presented in ascending order), the future looks bright.
