This is a list of 150+ young players we think think they could be wonderkids or potential wonderkids on Football Manager 2012, based on what we know from real football. We will try not to include a lot of players who appeared on our world renowed wonderkids list for FM11 in an effort to find some fresh starlets who are still relatively unknown.

The age limit is to be up to 20 years old by June 2011.
