Fresh off the back of the recent European under-21 Championships in Israel, we've got the under-20 World Cup - and you thought summer was a break from football?

The tournament takes place in Turkey this time, and kicks off on June 21 with Cuba versus South Korea in Kayseri.

There's no Brazil or Argentina for the first time ever - the two South American giants are the most successful competitors in the competition's history.

But there's still plenty of talent, and plenty of Premier League interest. 24 national team squads have flown out to Turkey, with some of the world's best young players set to star.

We're giving you a few names to look out for here - from Chile to England via Spain and Uruguay. 

There is bound to be a few (a lot) you've already heard of, but we hope we've given you a few unknowns to keep your eye on as well.
