The best young players in world football - goalkeepers, defenders, midfielders and forwards - Courtois, Varane, Pogba and Lukaku - ranked in this top 10. recently published their list of the 100 best players aged 21 or younger in the site's annual tribute to the now defunct Don Balon award.

It was a thorough list, with household names mixing with unknown starlets from as far afield as Costa Rica and Romania.

And we've put together our own top 10 list. It does not follow the same strict Don Balon award rules, but we hope to spark a debate. 

We want you to list your own top 10 in the comments section below. We don't expect many of you to agree with us - *sad face* - but we'd love to hear your opinion.

Check out our list and drop your own shortlist into the comment box below...
