World Football: Top 50 Players in the World Under 21

Premier League Talent Scout, is a series I've been running since the start of the Premier League that profiles the biggest U-21 (and sometimes U-23) stars in the English Premier League. In doing it, I like to think that I've established myself as a sort of "go-to man" with regards to young soccer stars.

As such, I've decided to branch out a little further and profile the 50 best and brightest world football stars under 21. As is the case on Premier League Talent Scout, players already 21 years old are eligible for inclusion.

Since number of players who can be included is so vast, I expect that many readers will have at least a couple of players that they think should've been mentioned on this list. If you happen to be one of these readers, please do leave your opinion on who you think was wrongly left out in the comments section below.

Also, I will be ranking these players, so feel free to chime in on who is misplaced as well.

Players will be ranked based on their current skill level, as well as their upside and potential. Current skill will weigh greater than potential, but potential will still play a major role in the rankings.
