As Euro 2020 gets underway, many young players will be making their first impressions on a massive international stage. They’ve dazzled for their respective clubs, but the stakes will be much higher as Europe’s biggest international trophy is up for grabs. Here’s how the odds shape up for the best young player of the tournament.
Phil Foden is the heavy favorite in this category, likely because he’s the one most likely to get maximum playing time. Foden is in England’s starting XI and will be a centerpiece of their attack. The Manchester City star in the making will look to turn his potential into production this summer.
Other big names in top 5
England teammate Mason Mount will contend with Foden for the honor. Kai Havertz, who was the hero in Chelsea’s Champions League victory over Manchester City, is also in the running at +900. Ferran Torres will be featured in Spain’s attack, making him a good candidate for this honor as well.
Potential value bet
Portugal’s Joao Felix is great value at +1100. Because of the way Euro 2020 works, some teams can still get into the knockout round despite finishing third in the group. That helps Portugal due to being in a group with France and Germany. Felix will get plenty of games and has the talent to win this award. He’ll be overshadowed by Cristiano Ronaldo, but that might help bettors with a possible value play.
