In recent years, English football has been progressing. If in past years the England national team often failed, now it is among the favorites of the tournaments. The current generation of England is very strong, but England also has a lot of young talent. For you, we have compiled the top 10 young and talented England footballers.
10. Dean Henderson
England had problems with the goalkeeper’s position. Seemann left, and Joe Hart often failed in important games. England now have several good goalkeepers, and the best of them is Henderson. Many Premier League clubs wanted to buy Henderson, but the footballer decided to stay at Manchester United. Dean was not afraid of competition with De Gea and is now fighting for a place in the starting line. Henderson is only 22 years old and has a career ahead of him.
9. Bukayo Saka
Saka is only 19 years old, but he is already an important player for Arsenal. Bukayo is a versatile footballer and can play in multiple positions. Many call him the best footballer on the team. Unlike other footballers, Saka is stable and often saves the team. For the England national team, Bukayo played only 4 matches, but this figure will grow.
