We tip 10 Young Soccer Superstars to hit the big time at Euro 2024 this summer!

Along with the Paris Olympic Games, the European Championship Finals in Germany will be one of the summer’s biggest sporting events.

24 of the top European national teams will compete to follow Italy into the record books as the European Champions.

While all 24 national team managers are deciding on the final few places in their squad, some talented young players are assured of a place at the finals this summer.

This article will look closely at ten young soccer superstars who could hit the headlines in Germany.

Let’s begin by looking at one of the superstars who has been integral to Bayer Leverkusen’s incredible season.

10 Young Soccer Superstars to Watch at Euro 2024

Please note that all statistics shown were correct at the time of writing but may have changed.

Jude Bellingham (England)

  • Age: 20
  • Position: Midfielder/Attacking Midfielder
  • Club: Real Madrid
  • Club Apps: 40
  • Club Goals: 23
  • Int Caps: 29
  • Int Goals: 3

After a big-money move from Borussia Dortmund, Jude Bellingham announced himself onto the world stage at Real Madrid. A sensational first season has seen the Englishman wrap up the La Liga title, top-scoring for Real, and he could add the Champions League to that. He is a sure-fire starter for Gareth Southgate’s England and could be set for a breakout international tournament.

Xavi Simons (Netherlands)

  • Age: 21
  • Position: Attacking Midfielder/Winger
  • Club: Red Bull Leipzig (on loan from Paris St. Germain)
  • Club Apps: 42
  • Club Goals: 9
  • Int Caps: 13
  • Int Goals: 0

Xavi Simons spent his season on loan with Red Bull Leipzig, becoming one of the most exciting creative players in the Bundesliga. Inventive and classy, Simons is deft of foot and has a low centre of gravity, allowing him to change pace and direction quickly. The Netherlands hasn’t seen the best of the youngster in any of his 13 previous appearances, but that could well change this summer.

Giorgio Scalvini (Italy)

  • Age: 20
  • Position: Central Defender
  • Club: Atalanta
  • Club Apps: 39
  • Club Goals: 1
  • Int Caps: 8
  • Int Goals: 0

Tall, rangy and ultra-competitive, yet with a touch of class on the ball, Scalvini is a centre-back that combines all the elements of many of the great Italian central defenders. He has been rock solid at the heart of Atalanta’s defence this season and has become a regular selection for his national team. Expect plenty of interest from top clubs around Europe once the finals are over for this young, powerful stopper.

Jamal Musiala (Germany)

  • Age: 21
  • Position: Attacking Midfielder/Winger
  • Club: Bayern Munich
  • Club Apps: 38
  • Club Goals: 12
  • Int Caps: 27
  • Int Goals: 2

Bayern’s prodigiously talented young superstar has slotted in alongside Harry Kane very well for his club side this season, proving to be as talented a creator as he is a goalscorer. Musiala is a smooth runner with the ball and is deceptively quick and difficult to get the ball from. He also has an eye for a killer pass and will likely be a focal point for the host nation’s attacking strategy this summer.

Cole Palmer (England)

  • Age: 22
  • Position: Attacking Midfielder/Winger
  • Club: Chelsea
  • Club Apps: 43
  • Club Goals: 24
  • Int Caps: 2
  • Int Goals: 0

After signing from Manchester City for around £40 million last summer, Cole Palmer has shown that price tag to be a bargain. In a poor season for his club team, Palmer scored an incredible 24 goals in 43 games for struggling Chelsea. His form saw Gareth Southgate pick him for the England squad earlier this year, and after such a superb season, it would be a huge surprise if he is not in the 26-man squad for the summer.

Florian Wirtz (Germany)

Young Soccer Superstars
  • Age: 21
  • Position: Attacking Midfielder/Winger
  • Club: Bayer Leverkusen
  • Club Apps: 46
  • Club Goals: 18
  • Int Caps: 16
  • Int Goals: 1

Wirtz has been one of the most important and impressive performers in Bayer Leverkusen’s unbeaten season thus far. The attacking midfielder has shone for his club side but is yet to translate those kinds of performances to the national team. On home soil this summer, he may have the perfect opportunity to do precisely that.

Lamine Yamal (Spain)

  • Age: 16
  • Position: Winger
  • Club: Barcelona
  • Club Apps: 47
  • Club Goals: 7
  • Int Caps: 6
  • Int Goals: 2

The youngest player on this list, Yamal, will turn 17 on the eve of the Euro 2024 final. Even so, the Barcelona prodigy has played almost 50 games this season for his club side, netting seven goals. He has also made six appearances for Spain, scoring twice, becoming the youngest player to score for both teams.

Benjamin Sesko (Slovenia)

  • Age: 20
  • Position: Striker
  • Club: Red Bull Leipzig
  • Club Apps: 41
  • Club Goals: 17
  • Int Caps: 28
  • Int Goals: 11

Sesko is a tall, powerfully built striker, very much in the mould of Erling Haaland. The 20-year-old Slovenian star offers them a powerful target man, and he is also a regular scorer at both club and international levels. His size and ability will certainly give defenders headaches at the summer tournament.

Adam Hlozek (Czechia)

  • Age: 21
  • Position: Winger
  • Club: Bayer Leverkusen
  • Club Apps: 34
  • Club Goals: 7
  • Int Caps: 31
  • Int Goals: 2

The young Czech star has been an international since age 16 and has been playing well for Bayer Leverkusen this season. He has been rotated in and out of the team at times, and it is fair to say he hasn’t quite reached the potential he showed as a youngster. Aged just 21, however, time is on his side, and he will be a key creative force for a new-look Czechia team this summer.

Kobbie Mainoo (England)

  • Age: 19
  • Position: Central Midfielder
  • Club: Manchester United
  • Club Apps: 29
  • Club Goals: 3
  • Int Caps: 2
  • Int Goals: 0

After breaking into the Manchester United team this season, Mainoo has not looked back. The young midfielder has established himself at the heart of the Red Devils midfield and recently debuted for England in that same position. With Kalvin Phillips injured, Mainoo could be one of the players to benefit from the increase in squad size from 23 to 26 players in the summer. Mainoo is a classy player, a neat passer and a creator, but he has also weighed in with some key goals at times for his club side.
