A post shared by Amine Gouiri (@amine_gouiri) on

In August, the French teenaged-striker Amine Gouiri retweeted a video of Karim Benzema fooling Gerard Pique with a classic step-over dribble in the Spanish Super Cup. It was titled: Benzema a détruit Piqué (Benzema destroyed Pique). For a few years now, Gouiri, the top-scorer in this FIFA U-17 World Cup, has been compared with Benzema. It’s been said the fluidity in the movement down the flank, the ball sense, and the quick release is similar. Gouiri has made it clear that he wants to be his own man, but they aren’t really leaving him alone.
He left an indelible impression again Japan on Wednesday with his knack of materialising at scoring positions and also the ability to not hog but coordinate well with other forwards. Both led to the two goals that sunk Japan who were left gasping at the sudden power surge, and quick releases.

2.Maxence Caqueret (France) :

An exciting Lyon youngster, the midfielder is the captain of the French squad. A player with a very mature head for his age, Maxence is expected to lead from the front with his ability to control the midfield crucial for his side’s progress.

3.Yacine Adli (France) :

Another sensational product of the Paris Saint-Germain F.C Academy, the forward is one of the best prospects in the Academy Batch of 2000 and he will be expected to provide the fireworks up top along with Amine.

4.Mateu Morey(Spain):

The Barcelona talent played a key role in Spain’s triumph in the UEFA Under-17 Championship. Mateu is an attacking right-back, and the best in the business. He struck important goals for Spain during the EURO campaign. The wonderful solo effort against France provided glimpses of his potential. He will be joining Bayern Munich shortly after the World Cup.

5.Abel Ruiz(Spain):

He is the joint top scorer in the history of the European Under-17 Championship with 16 goals. The Barcelona player was the leading goal-scorer for Spain in Croatia (European Under-17 Championship) with four goals.
