Predictions in football are notoriously difficult, be it predicting victorious teams or potential superstar players.
Just look at England - the 'Golden Generation' didn't make waves at a single World Cup, only for the most unfancied side in years to make the semi-finals in 2018.
And it's even tougher with players.
The best example may be Cristiano Ronaldo telling people that if they think he's good, wait until they see Sporting teammate Fabio Paim (you might have to google him).
Regardless, you'll find people and publications predicting all sorts every year.

And in June 2011, FourFourTwo magazine listed their '20 under 20' - the best under-20 players to keep an eye out for.
So how did they do? Here's the list and what happened to each 'future star'.
1. Jack Wilshere - Then - Arsenal - Now - West Ham United
2. Erik Lamela - Then - River Plate - Now - Tottenham Hotspur
3. Aaron Ramsey - Then - Arsenal - Now - Juventus
4. Adem Ljajic - Then - Fiorentina - Now - Besiktas
5. Alan Dzagoev - Then - CSKA Moscow - Now - CSKA Moscow
6. Iker Muniain - Then - Athletic Bilbao - Now - Athletic Bilbao
7. David de Gea - Then - Atletico Madrid - Now - Manchester United
8. Neymar - Then - Santos - Now - Paris Saint-Germain
9. Luas Piazon - Then - Chelsea - Now - Chelsea
10. Christian Eriksen - Then - Ajax - Now - Tottenham Hotspur
11. Lacina Traore - Then - Krasnodar - Now - CFR Cluj
12. Xherdan Shaqiri - Then - Basel - Now - Liverpool
13. Eden Hazard - Then - Lille - Now - Real Madrid
14. James McCarthy - Then - Hamilton Academical - Now - Crystal Palace

18. Jeffrey Bruma - Then - Chelsea - Now - Wolfsburg
19. Ahmed Khalil - Then - Al-Ahli - Now - Shabab Al-Ahli
20. Mario Balotelli - Then - Manchester City - Now - Free Agent
Seeing as all of these players are supposedly in their prime now, it's a surprising list to read - and not just because Palace have more of them than anyone else.
You'd say that maybe four of these kicked on to be among the best in the world - De Gea, Neymar, Eriksen, and Hazard.
As for the others, injuries have certainly had a big impact on a number of careers, while some simply didn't live up to their early promise.News Now - Sport News
