The nominations for the 2023 Kopa Trophy – given to the best U21 player in world football – were revealed on Wednesday afternoon.
The 10-man shortlist was comprised of the best youngsters on the planet, who will all be vying to clinch the title won by Barcelona star Gavi last year.
Only one English player – Jude Bellingham – made the shortlist, following his tremendous campaign with Borussia Dortmund and his recent Real Madrid move.
The full list included: Alejandro Balde, Rasmus Hojlund, Pedri, Eduardo Camavinga, Xavi Simons, Jamal Musiala, Antonio Silva, Gavi, Elye Wahi and Bellingham.
Man United’s Hojlund – who completed a £72million move to Old Trafford this summer – is the only Premier League candidate on the list.
