The 2018 FIFA World Cup will be the occasion for many young stars to shine as they are doing currently with their respective clubs. Many young players born in the late 90’s have shown all great potential and are slowly becoming cracks with the national teams. Being relevant when you represent your country is not the same as it is with the club teams.

Pressure is fierce and expectations are high.We can remember in this instance Brazil during the 2014 World Cup debacle against Germany. Pressure was high on youngster Neymar to carry his team to the Final and he and the team failed. If you want to place a bet from your mobile, be sure to use the betfred app download guide.

Another failure example when pressure is at its climax is Messi. Since his young age, he has shone with FC Barcelona, breaking records after records. He is one of the living legends of the beautiful game. However, he seems to never bring the extra magic with Argentina he is able to do FC Barcelona! Is it the system, the roster? This shows how difficult it is to perform on both the club and national levels.

On the other side, Cristiano Ronaldo was able to finally convert years of struggle with Portugal by winning the Euro 2016 from which he exited early with a leg injury…! From his young days with Sporting Portugal to Manchester United, he has brought his A game. 

So, who are the next cracks for many years to come. Here are below a few players who should make the headlines from many years to come:

Kylian Mbappé

Mbappé was revealed this season to the world thanks to amazing and consistent performances with AS Monaco. He became the youngest player to ever score in consecutive Champions League elimination games. He won the French Ligue 1, stopping Paris Saint Germain’s dominance. His is probably the most coveted player on the market now and his price is rocketing! At just 18 years old, his future is golden.

Marcus Rashford

The Manchester United youngster has to deal with a fierce competition under Mourinho but when given the chance, he has shown all his brilliance. With England, he has already been decisive and scored very important goals. 

His complementarity with Harry Kane who is only a few years older will be determinant now for the English national team and for years to come. Both constitute a very strong attacking force England will try to exploit in Russia. 

Renato Sanches

The Portuguese midfielder is already a regular with Bayern Munich and Portugal. He was very important during the Euro 2016 enabling Portugal to win the trophy against the host France. With Bayern Munich and now that Xabi Alonso retired, he is going to have the keys to control the midfield. Probably now one of the best prospects at his position. 

André Silva

The Portuguese forward got transferred to AC Milan after a very productive season with Benfica. The task is big with AC Milan which has been struggling the past few years in an attempt to become relevant in Serie A and in Europe. With Cristiano Ronaldo, they are Portugal’s two biggest threats.  AC Milan expects a lot from him so does Portugal for World Cup.

Gianluigi Donnaruma

The new Buffon? He has the fist name for it! The kid took over AC Milan goalkeeping job and is next on the list after Buffon retires to take over Squadra Azzura. He has been terrific this season with AC Milan and has been selected 4 times already with the National team. There have been numerous rumors talks that he could join with Mbappé the back-to-back Champions League winner Real Madrid

Ousmane Dembélé

Both Mbappé and Dembélé are the French jewels for years to come, similar to what Henry and Trezeguet were some 15 years ago. Ousmane Dembélé went from Stade Rennais in France to Borussia Dortmund in the German Bundesliga and was very productive right away with 10 goals last season.  He also scored his first goal with the National team when France beat England 3-2 in exhibition game.
