GamingZion tried to present the five best World Cup 2018 wonderkids that will be a joy to watch this summer!
The most important event in the past 4 years is coming up soon. Russia will organize the FIFA World Cup 2018 and to prepare for the exciting tournament, GamingZion tried to come up with a list. A list of the five best World Cup 2018 wonderkids. Let us know if you agree with the names on the list or if you think we missed someone!
5. Marco Asensio
Marco Asensio is not a new name at online sportsbook sites in Russia. The talented Spaniard is quite an important member at Zidane’s Real Madrid, and he actually took key role in Galacticos winning the Champions League. Asensio can’t stop scoring when his team needs it the most. In fact, he keeps on scoring in the most important tournament: Champions League.
Spain coach Julen Lopetegui is definitely bringing Asensio to the Russian Federation, and based on the Real Madrid star, he will definitely score some goals for Spain. It will be a whole new level of football for him as it is to be his very first World Cup tournament. Can he live up to the expectations? Can Asensio shine at World Cup 2018? Will he be one of the best World Cup 2018 Wonderkids?
4. Gabriel Jesus
Similarily to Asensio, Gabriel Jesus is also not a new name among football fans. His talent has been discovered a few years ago. Pep Guardiola and Manchester City captured him immediately. This season, the Brazilian striker played an important role in Man City winning the Premier League 5 match days before the official end.
After conquering Premier League, he can go and achieve bigger dreams now. His whole nation wants him to succeed by Marcelo’s and Neymar’s side. Of course everyone will expect the magic to be done by Neymar Jr, but can that mean a clear path towards success for Gabriel Jesus? Will he be able to prove that he deserves to be on the list of the best World Cup 2018 wonderkids? We will see soon enough…
3. Timo Werner
Germany has never had a problem with developing top class strikers who know how to score at the perfect time. We can remember Mario Gomez, who always scored a goal, no matter how horrible of a player he was apart from scoring. And there was Miroslav Klose, who is actually the player with the most goals in FIFA World Cup history, taking over Brazilian legend Ronaldo in 2014.
Now a similar career is expected of 22-year-old Leipzig striker Timo Werner. Online sportsbook sites in Russia are even offering you odds for Werner to be World Cup 2018 top scorer. Will the World Cup 2018 wonderkid bring glory to Germany? Can he actually reach the highest level at such a young age? It’s only a matter of time till we find out…
2. Ousmane Dembelé
Sites in the online sportsbook directory agree that Ousmane Dembelé is one of the biggest World Cup 2018 wonderkids. The former Dortmund and current Barcelona star hasn’t had the chance to show what he’s capable of this season because of a series of serious injuries, but Raymond Domenech will include him in the national squad for sure.
The €150 million talent is expected to make a difference on France’s matches. Not all by himself as he will be full of capable companions, including the biggest World Cup 2018 wonderkid on our list… Can they win the World Cup for France, or will they fail to be the best?
1. Kylian Mbappé
Kylian Mbappé is definitely the biggest striker talent in the world today, and as such, he deserves the first place on our list of the best World Cup 2018 wonderkids. The PSG star will play for France and he will probably be one of the key players in the starting line-up, together with Atletico striker Griezmann and Barca talent Ousmane Dembelé.
Mbappé’s name became world-wide known in the Champions League last season when he took AS Monaco to the semi-final. PSG signed him right after – on a load deal, but they are likely to buy him for €180 million next summer. Real Madrid and Barcelona also hoped to capture the French crack. Will there be a new episode of the Mbappé saga after the World Cup 2018 wonderkid proves his talent?
