In every European Championship, a young star makes his global mark, perhaps most notably the English striker Wayne Rooney in Euro 2004. Who are the candidates for a “historic” Euro championship, and they are under 22 years old?
Phil Foden (England)
Foden’s star is quickly ascending to the world, especially after he presented an exceptional season with the England champion.
Some expect the 21-year-old to be England’s star player in the tournament, with coach Garth Southgate expected to rely on an entirely young squad.
Dejan Kulusevsky (Sweden)
The young Swedish striker Kulusevsky is considered one of the most successful deals of the Italian Juventus last season, and with the absence of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the 21-year-old may be the star of his country’s first team in the tournament.
Pedri was not over 18 years old, but he became a key player in the Barcelona team last season, and he is expected to be one of Spain’s illustrious stars in the tournament, especially with the absence of “creative” names in the midfield.
Kai Havertz (Germany)
All eyes are on the star of the Champions League final, Haveritz, to shine with the German national team during the Euro, and the German striker will try to complete the end of the season, and continue to shine.
Jayden Sancho (England)
There has been much talk about Borussia Dortmund’s winger, Sancho, who will face his first real international challenge with England during the upcoming European Championship, during which he will have to prove his high price in the transfer market.
