The Under 20 World Cup gets underway in Turkey on Friday. Here are the best players worth keeping an eye out for:
Nico Lopez – Uruguay
The Roma starlet burst on to the scene in Serie A, earning the Giallorossi a last minute 2-2 draw at home to Catania on the opening match of last season with a stunning goal (shown below).

He is a nimble, tricky customer with a left foot that will punish you if given a yard.
