Titles In This Set:
Erling Braut Haaland
One of Britain’s most promising right-wingers, Jadon Sancho has made his mark abroad rather than in the Premier League. At just 17 years old, Jadon made the bold move not to sign with English juggernaut Manchester City. He instead became a breakout success in the German Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund. An undeniable talent, from London five-a-sides to the pro ranks and international fanfare, Jadon’s stellar football journey has only just begun.
With his dazzling skills, João Félix’s parents often joked that he could dribble before he could walk. Once overlooked for his small frame, the forward soon made everyone take note with abilities that took him to the top flight in the Spanish La Liga. A hero for Atlético Madrid, and playing alongside his hero Cristiano Ronaldo for their national team, could the next big thing in football also be coming from Portugal?
Erling Braut Haaland
A force of nature, Erling Braut Haaland is one of the most sought-after strikers in world football. The goal-scoring machine from Norway made his mark for Borussia Dortmund in the German Bundesliga, as well as in the Champions League. Following in his father’s footsteps, Haaland is a globe-trotting sensation, developing his skills in different countries. But which league will he turn to next? Haaland is charting a course to become one of the football greats of the new generation.
Trent Alexander-Arnold grew up gazing at the gates of Liverpool FC’s Anfield stadium and came through the ranks to realise his childhood dream of wearing the famous red himself. At only 21 years old, the talented right-back was part of the team that ended Liverpool’s 30-year wait for the Premier League title. But with so much still to come, including opportunities on the international stage, Alexander-Arnold’s highlight reel is sure to grow.
Marcus Rashford MBE became the youngest football player to score on their England debut, ahead of the Euro 2016 tournament. Marked as a talented forward in the Manchester United Academy from a young age, the homegrown hero has become a force both on and off the pitch. From humble beginnings in Greater Manchester to pushing the government to tackle food poverty, this young star shines brightly in the Premier League and beyond.
Witness the birth of a superstar. Kylian Mbappé was just 19 years old when he became the youngest football player since Brazilian legend Pelé to score at a World Cup final. Already an exceptional striker for Monaco and PSG in France’s Ligue 1, the 2018 tournament made the young Frenchman an international star. From idolising Cristiano Ronaldo to being spoken of in the same breath as the Portuguese star, Kylian continues his rise to the top.
At just 20 years old, Kai Havertz became the youngest player to score thirty Bundesliga goals. The attacking midfielder quickly made a name for himself with German club Bayer 04 Leverkusen, before switching to the Premier League with Chelsea. Already a Champions League winner with the Blues, as well as a regular starter for the German national team, Kai is only just getting started on his journey to footballing stardom.
Phil Foden is a once-in-a-generation talent. He grew up dreaming of wearing the sky blue of his boyhood team Manchester City, and it wasn’t long before he was scouted for their academy. With Manchester City legends such as Sergio Agüero and David Silva moving away from the club, a new star has lit up the Etihad Stadium. From Stockport streets to Wembley Arena, witness the rise of a new Premier League hero.
Making his senior debut at just 16 years old, Ansu Fati became the second-youngest footballer to play for Barcelona. He has swiftly set La Liga on fire at one of the biggest clubs in the world. Since playing on makeshift pitches in Guinea-Bissau as a boy, Ansu has made the Camp Nou stadium his home. The famous number 10 shirt previously worn by Ronaldinho and Lionel Messi is his now, and a new star is rising. This is Ansu Fati’s time.
Arsenal wasted no time in signing local starlet Bukayo Saka for their academy at age 9. In the year Bukayo was born, the Gunners were a footballing force that went on to take a historic trophy double. But the club faded as the years went by. Now a new era has come. Arsenal is looking forwards rather than back. Their future is Bukayo Sako: a talent who excites fans in the Premier League and beyond.
