Golden Boy Award shortlist

The 20-man shortlist for the Golden Boy 2019 Award has been announced, including Joao Felix, Matthijs de Ligt, Ansu Fati and Nicolò Zaniolo.

A large international panel votes for the player aged under 21 who is most likely to make his mark in the coming campaign.

It was won by Ajax defender De Ligt last year, before he reached the Champions League semi-final and then completed a transfer to Juventus.

The big favourite this time is Atletico Madrid and Portugal forward Joao Felix and the winner will be announced in Turin on December 16.

There are three Italians in the final shortlist of 20, represented by Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, Roma midfielder Zaniolo and new Everton signing Moise Kean.
