Under-20 World Cup Stars So far

The tournament may be only young, but already some players have caught the eye of the onlookers in the Under 20 World Cup

Jese Rodriguez

The Real Madrid B player has been the talk of the Spanish squad along with Gerard Deulofeu. Extremely skilful & full of pace, he has devastated defence’s with his playing style. At this early stage of the competition it is still reasonable to say he could be the player of the tournament.


A highly explosive winger, the Guinea-Bissau born man has been the fuel behind Portugal’s start to the competition. With three goals thus far, he could take Portugal all the way. That is if the Portuguese tighten their leaky defence, which has conceded four goals in the first two games.

Salih Ucan

A controlling midfielder for Turkey, his well balanced play allowed him to dictate against El Salvador in a 3-0 victory. His goal proved his attacking potential, that could be vital if the hosts advance to the latter rounds of the competition.

Yaya Sanogo

Leading the France attack, Sanogo has been the main target man for the French and has played it pretty well. With two goals so far in the competition, his presence up front could make him a real asset to Arsenal when he moves there after the tournament.

Ahmed Hassan Koka

The only European based player in the Egypt squad. Ahmed Hassan Koka showed his highly creative side as Egypt matched Chile in their opening game. Equipped with a wide range of passing, he will be the instigator if Egypt do well in this tournament.
