Your countries top 5 talent

OK here goes, I want all of you to make your countries top 5 talent so I can see the quality coming out of each country
They have to be U21
Italy
1. Cassano (U21)
2. Boriello (U21)
3. Lodi (U19)
4. Bonera (U21)
5. Della Rocca (U19)

Also Diego Maradona JR, but never seen him play, so cant really say.

England:

1) Wayne Rooney - he's extremely overrated but still our best young talent.
2) Jermaine Jenas
3) Chris Kirkland - although he hasnt had first team footy till recently, hes great and will be our #1 for years.
4) James Milner - haven't seen much of him but what i have seen and heard, he will be a superb player.
5) Michael Dawson - Notts Forest defender, hes already been training with the England first team and also rumoured to be wanted by Liverpool.

theres loads more but none that i think will be world class superstars like Spain, France, Italy and Brazil have coming through.

And what makes you think that? You've got to stop underating our players, and stop overating foreign players.

Maybe if they had latin names you'd start rating them higher

I'm wondering how much European football you watch. Not much by the sounds of it!

Sticking to players that are all U-21 years old, I would go with the following players from Argentina.

1. Tevez
2. Cavenaghi
3. Coloccini
4. Perez
5. Mascherano

yugoslavia:

1. Nemanja Vidic - red star belgrade
Danko Lazovic - Partizan
Marjan Markovic - red star belgrade
Gvozdenovic - red star belgrade (not sure of age)
Milovanovic - red star belgrade

too many to name and put in order, Vidic is no. 1 but after that it's debatable, the top players are a little older but these are the the top U 21's , with some 18 or younger. Vidic is already being linked to Man Utd and Real Madrid.

3. Pennant
4. Kirkland
5. Joe Cole

FRANCE

- Philippe Mexes (20 years old)
- Djibril Cissé (21 years old)
- Mourad Meghni (19 years old)
- Le Tallec (17 years old)
- Sinama Pongolle (17 years old)

Hard call as remain Kapo, Boumsong, Landreau, Govou, Frau, Pedretti and so on... all of them can become world class.

he's not too old either, but i gues your right he's not part of the youngsters really. I'd switch him with either Xavi or Reyes.

Some Argentinians in no particular order

Cavenaghi
D'Alessandro
