The 2018 World Cup is set to showcase the best players in the world like; Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Neymar. These stars are established, but there are many new stars we’ll see in Russia next summer. Some of the players on this list you may have heard of, others you may not, but either way, they’re all youngsters who will light up the World Cup in Russia.
Here are 5 young players to look out for next summer.
Serbia finished top of Group D with 21 points, and because of their strong qualifying performance, we get to see one of the best young goalkeepers in the world next summer. At just 21 years of age, Pedrag Rajikovic already has 6 caps for the Serbian national team.
At club level, he made his debut for Red Star Belgrade when he was just 17 and became the first choice at the club when he was 18. He’s an exceptional talent that much of world football is closely watching. In fact, Arsenal are rumoured to be scouting him as they look for Petr Cech’s long-term replacement.
