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 Ten

1 Eden Hazard Eden Hazard Eden 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

.Eden Hazard Chelsea top scorer

He's amazing. He's on fire

Hazard for forever in chelsea who is a magician respect him

2 Marco Reus Marco Reus Marco 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

Reus is better of than hazard since he dependable, believable, good dribbler and one the best controllers. Furthermore he's got good finishing power and great player maker whom you can trust when inside opponent's box. In fact he should be contentending with Messi &Ronaldo.

3 Neymar Neymar Neymar 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. more.

He rules

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 is a good footballer

Neymar is SUPER FANTASTIC - ofor

4 Gareth Bale Gareth Bale Gareth 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

Hell yeah also his ears being pinned back really that just makes him look hotter

5 Stephan 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

He is a multitalent player, please don't go away from Milan

He is one of the future of ac milan

He's best player

El is best

6 Oscar

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

The best young Brazilian

Best midfilder in world at current time
Natural no. 10

7 Isco Isco Francisco Román Alarcón Suárez, commonly known as Isco, is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for Real Madrid.

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

Isco welcome to manchester!

8 David de Gea David de Gea David de Gea Quintana is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for English club Manchester United and the Spain national team.

One of the best young goalkeepers in the world, alongside Manuel Neur. Star for Manchester United last season, displaying remarkable & athletic saves using not only his hands, but also his legs, head,...well practically any body part. Has amazing dribbling skills too!

He is one of the young superstars now.. And soon enough biggest goalkeeper in the world.

9 Mario Gotze Mario Gotze Mario Götze is a German footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for Borussia Dortmund and the Germany national team.

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

10 Jack Wilshere Jack Wilshere Jack Andrew Garry Wilshere is an English professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Bournemouth, on loan from Arsenal, and the England national team.

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

13 Mario Balotelli Mario 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.

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
