With the U17 World Cup going on, it’s as good a time as any for the spotlight to be shone on the football stars of tomorrow. The joy of tracking young stars as they progress through the ranks and attempt to make their mark in the world of football is great as we at Outside of the Boot can firmly attest to. Clubs worldwide also keep a keen eye out for young footballers who they think could rise to the very top. After all, which club wouldn’t want to make a star as opposed to buying one?
