5. Raheem Sterling

Age: 19

Nationality: English

Club: Liverpool

England tend to be rather pessimistic when talking about the future of their national team. As far as the majority of fans are concerned, the golden generation of the 2000's is over and the Three Lions are entering a new dark age.

But with two players in the top 10 youngsters, they beat world beaters like Spain, Italy and Germany, who each have one apiece.

Raheem Sterling is the second Englishman to make the top 10 after two stellar seasons at Liverpool under Brendan Rodgers. 

A flying winger, Sterling has proved almost impossible to handle at times and looks set to flourish alongside compatriot Daniel Sturridge for years to come.
