Great young footballers are developing in the Premier League every day. Most of them are home made boys who perform for England's young national teams. Some of them even play in the Championship. Here we look at three of the top rising talents.
Southampton's 18-year old wonderkid Luke Shaw has already been called up for England's senior national team. He made his debut against Denmark in February. As his team-mates said, it was only a matter of time when he'll receive Hodgson's call.
Although a big Chelsea fan, he has developed into an integral member of his current club. He is often compared to Gareth Bale, because of his tendency to play attacking football. Saints are giving their contribution for the national team, as their players Adam Lallana, Jay Rodriguez and Rickie Lambert will also most definitely feature on the upcoming World Cup.
One of those players who doesn't play in the strongest English league, but still fulfils all of the expectations given by club and country. Over the years he has become one of the best players at Derby County - his only club so far. He managed to get seven U21 caps, and if he continues with excellent performances, he'll soon join Luke Shaw in the England first-team.
The Burundi-born star is the current top scorer of U21 squad with six goals in five matches, and is still seeking for his first-team place in West Bromwich Albion. The 20-year old striker scored a winning goal against United in a 1-2 win in the Premier League last September. Undoubtedly there lies a bright future ahead of him.
There are still plenty of other talented players who could find their way to the senior squad. James Ward-Prowse, Nathan Redmond and Nathaniel Chalobah are just some of them. Do they have the ability to step up and make a difference?
