Top 10 Youngsters of the European Football 2012-2013 Season

This is basically my personal list of the impressive young footballers in the 2012/2013 season. The player must be 23 or younger to enter this list.

The Top TenXW

1Eden HazardEden Michael Hazard is a Belgian professional footballer who plays for Chelsea and the Belgium national team.

Questions were asked before he joined Chelsea of whether or not he can perform against the physical approach of most English clubs. The Belgian superstar is not blessed with massive physique, but he is definitely blessed with above massive talent. Eden Hazard has flourished in the EPL, and added that little bit of flair that Chelsea needed. The numbers don't lie Eden has a staggering 19 assists and 8 goals so far this season contributing to 28 Chelsea goals. - Sh3bolla

Hazard for forever in chelsea who is a magician respect him

The best in Chelsea better than CR7

Obvious choice... Hazard had to be in the top!

2Marco ReusMarco Reus is a German professional footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder, winger or striker for German Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund and the Germany national team.

The German international superstar is enjoying a stellar debut season with Dortmund. He signed in the summer 17 million euro fee, that seemed a bit too high for him. Halfway through the season we can see that Marco is worth double or maybe even triple that amount. He has been brilliant for Borussia scoring 15 goals, one of them a wonderful volley against madrid at the Bernabeu. Reus also has 8 assists to his name. - Sh3bolla

Marco reus is unbelievable he is to talented to be 3rd reus and lewandowski demolished real Madrid last Wednesday and murinioh spoke about Marco reus and explained that his defenders were amazed by his talent Marco reus is way better than Shaarawy and Eden hazard come on! I think reus should be voted 1st

You my best player and I hope you win the youngest player of the year

Isn't marco reus better than eden hazard

3Stephan El-Shaarawy

Milan's little pharaoh has been outstanding this season. He was denied any real opportunities to break into the first team prior to this season, but when he had the chance, boy did he take it. EL92, as Milan fans call him, is currently the team's top scorer this season with 19 goals and also has 6 assists to his name this campaign; However, the most astonishing aspect about this prodigy is that he is just 20 years of age. - Sh3bolla

4Gareth BaleGareth Frank Bale is a Welsh professional footballer who plays as a winger for Spanish club Real Madrid and the Wales national team.

We were all wondering, when that time will come when Gareth Bale fulfills his potential. Believe it or not the time is now. Bale has been monsterous throughout this campaign for Spurs scoring and making goals for fun. He can simply do things very few people can, sometimes a one man show this season. His performances against Lyon and Aston Villa show us what the guy is all about. On his day Gareth Bale can single handedly win his team a match. - Sh3bolla

3rd best player in the world at the moment. Towers through any other player on this list. In my opinion he is comparable to Ronaldo and messi

He is the best player in the Premier League at the moment. Won Young Player and Best Player of the year which is why he should be top of this list

He's a BEAST! I call him coma.

5NeymarNeymar da Silva Santos Júnior, commonly known as Neymar or Neymar Jr., is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for Spanish club FC Barcelona and the Brazil national team as a forward or winger, and is also the captain of the national team.

Are you crazy!
Don't say he is overrated because player of the confederations cup says it all. Neymar is soon in barcelona so watch how he humiliates ramos, pepe and many other good players.

Neymar should be number 1 because he is faster than hazard and has more skills and if you think I'm wrong have you seen that video where he run a solo and humiliate that defender

He is crazy with the rainbow flick and his hair

He is the best

The young Brazilian playmaker was an extremely anonymous player for most European fans last season, but the kid has made a name for himself in a very short amount of time. He signed for Chelsea from Brazilian giants Internacional for a 20 million pound fee. He has scored 9 goals and assisted just as many so far this season. The 21 year old has also shown us that he has a knack of scoring outrageous goals, as seen against Juventus and Shakhtar in particular. - Sh3bolla

Malaga's young Spanish playmaker is having a remarkable 2012-13 season. The youngster has been said to highly resemble Barca superstar Andres Iniesta. Isco has scored 10 goals and assisted 6 so far this season. He has also made his Spanish international debut in midfield, which at the tender age of 2 is a huge achievement in itself. - Sh3bolla

8Mario Gotze

The 2nd Dortmund youngster to make the list. Mario Gotze has been an outstanding performer this season for club and the German national team. Gotze has a strong 14 goals and 8 assists for his club so far this season. He has also been a regular starter for the German national team. - Sh3bolla

He has proven his skills and assets in the toughest of situations, unlike players like Neymar who haven't performed well in tougher matches. For some people Gotze might be the next messi, and for some the next Ronaldo. However he will remain an amazing talent.

Definitely one of the most talented players on the planet and will get even better as he continues. He's on his way to Bayern Munich, which, in my opinion, is the best club in the world at the moment. - top10master

I think he is really tenanted player won't get a game at Bayern

9Jack Wilshere

Arsenal legend in the making. Jack Wilshere suffered a horrendous injury in the late stages of last season, which indicated that he won't be able to play up to his standards when recovers. The shocking thing about it is, he improved! That alone shows the determination of this young man. - Sh3bolla

Wilshire has a great impact on the arsenal squad. He lifts the team forward with his desire to push forward and has vision that no one else his age can compare with. His the next greatest legend for england and will soon captain them to a world cup trophy.

The is the next big thing of world football... - kawshiksharma

10Luis SuarezLuis Alberto Suárez Díaz is a Uruguayan professional footballer who plays for Spanish club Barcelona and the Uruguay national team as a striker.

The Contenders

11Mario Balotelli

Balotelli looked like an absolute monster in 2012 Euros, which gave us the impression that he was going to spring into life at Manchester City; However, it did not work out at all, and in the winter Super Mario signed for Milan. He sent an instant impact scoring 4 goals in his first 4 Milan games. - Sh3bolla

I don't know why he's not in top 5... He's arguably one of the best.

12Paul Pogba

Pogba win the Hyundai young player Award in 2014 FIFA world cup.

13Marco Verratti
14Raphael Varane

The only defender on the list, Raphael Varane has been a solid part of Real Madrid's defensive structure this season. 2 years ago presumably no one in the football world knew who this guy was, but he has done a good job in making a name for himself. He has also scored two goals this season, both of them against Real Madrid's bitter rivals Barcelona, which will definitely endear him to Madrid fans hearts. - Sh3bolla

15Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain
16Luka ModricLuka Modrić is a Croatian footballer who plays for Spanish club Real Madrid and the Croatia national team.

Luka modric is the best youngest player he is suppose to be at the top five... He is even one of the creative player in laliga

17Adnan Januzaj

The guy is so great

18Philippe CoutinhoPhilippe Coutinho Correia, known as Philippe Coutinho, or simply Coutinho, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for English club Liverpool and the Brazil national team as an attacking midfielder or winger.
