2020 Golden Boy Shortlist Announced
Written by thrilliant on October 16, 2020
The 20-man list for the 2020 Golden Boy award has been released.
The award was created by Tuttosport back in 2003 and is given to the best Under 21 player in Europe.
The most exciting youngsters in the game were in contention and it has now been reduced to the top 20. Erling Haaland appears to be one of the main contenders for the award after an incredible 2020.
Haaland has become one of the top strikers in world football – scoring 21 goals in 23 appearances for Dortmund since joining in December.
Haaland’s biggest threat to the prize is defender Alphonso Davies, who was important in Bayern’s success last term.
Sancho, Greenwood, and Foden made the final 20, with starlets Ansu Fati and Rodrygo receiving recognition for their good play.
