Top 16... wonderkids!

Hello readers! This is BT Sport giving you an exclusive look at the top 16 recently scouted wonderkids across the world! All 16 new talents are extremely special, it's a wonder they haven't been found sooner! However, scouts at BT Sport are the first to have spotted them, so we will be giving you extremely detailed accounts on each of the 16 wonderkids. We'll be doing 3 to 4 of the players each day... so look out very closely for each chapter!

#16: Ben Fentiman
It's no lie that Belgium have produced some of the greatest young talents of this generation - Romelu Lukaku, Jan Vertonghen, etc. Ben Fentiman, a 15 year old defender, is no different to these stars, and we at BT Sport believe that with the right club by his side, Fentiman can go far in the world of football.

Fentiman's strengths include sublime pace, strength and agility, as well as an enviable work rate. He is a player that within a few years everyone will want to get their hands on. Our first club prediction is Cercle Brugge, although any Belgian club would deserve such a player.

Born Ben Oliver Fentiman in Brussels on the 6th September 1996, he got into football at a young age, starting playing at just 3 years old. 6 years later, he joined the youth team of Royale Union Saint-Gilloise, but only stayed for a mere six months before leaving to focus on education. Two years later, he joined his new secondary school team, where he won Brussels school trophies 4 of the 5 years he was there. After leaving school just a few weeks ago, Ben will be hoping to get to a good start in his career.

Clubs interested: Cercle Brugge, Antwerp, Heist

#15: Leo van Basten
Just 2 years ago, Holland were in the final of the World Cup, in with a great chance of their first ever victory. However, after being eliminated in the group stage at EURO 2012, they looked like they could be a falling nation. That was until they were the only unbeaten team in the World Cup 2014 qualifiers and all doubts were completely wiped away. Anyway, Leo van Basten is a player who has the potential to lead this treasured nation to glory. Van Basten, 15, plays as a striker or an attacking midfielder, and is eligible to play for England's national team.

Leo van Basten has many strengths, some of which are amazing composure, stamina and finishing. In addition, he has superb first touch and strength, he truly is an outstanding player. BT Sport's first club prediction is Eredivisie's Vitesse, but Holland are just lucky to have van Basten within their youth system at all.

Leonardo van Basten, born on the 27th October 1996 in Amsterdam, grew up supporting Barclays Premier League side Liverpool, and his knowledge of football in Holland was poor. However, his football was astonishing at the young age of 4, he was recognised among his neighbours as "boos tenen", which translates into "angry toes". The skills continued to improve, and aren't going to stop just yet...

Clubs interested: ADO Den Haag, Achilles '29, Sparta Rotterdam

#14: Albu Alin
Romania aren't what you'd describe as a "big nation" by any stretch of the imagination, However, they have produced a defensive star called Albu Alin, who can throw Romania up the world rankings single-handedly. He'll be winning trophies for clubs across the world - and we at BT Sport wouldn't blame him if he chose to come to Italy or England instead! Alin is too a 15 year old, but age doesn't matter in the world, other than the fact that they have more potential to bring success to any club.

Albu has his strengths. These include work rate, teamwork and acceleration, which adds on to long shots, marking and stamina as well. Our first club prediction is Romanian ex-champions CFR Cluj, as the stakes in Romania aren't as high as those in Italy, England, Spain or Germany.

Albu Tiberiu Alin, born in Timisoara, Romania, on the 8th August 1996, supported Dinamo Bucharest his entire life. His parents, his grandparents, his entire family were all huge Dinamo fans. It is without a doubt Alin's dream to play for his beloved club, and he probably will at some point in his life.

Clubs interested: Vaslui, Petrolul Ploiesti, Corona Brasov

Top 16 Wonderkids... Part 2!

Hello again! We are doing the countdown of 16 brand new footballing superstars, ranking them from worst to best! If you missed the first part, read back just a tiny bit and you'll see number 16 - Ben Fentiman, number 15 - Leo van Basten, and number 14 - Albu Alin. So, without further ado, let's go from 13-11!

#13: Aaron Hardy
And here comes one of many Englishmen in our 16 wonderkids, Aaron Hardy, also known as Azzer, could be a part of England's glory, if that comes to them. Hardy, 16, is a midfielder, almost a Steven Gerrard type of player. Fortunately for us, he isn't eligible for any other country, so he's stuck playing for England! Whatever club Hardy may come to, it is unarguable that he will make a massive impact however long he stays.

Aaron Hardy, like all players, has his many strengths. Some examples of these are creativity, work rate, stamina, passing and technique. However, Hardy has a huge risk hanging over his name - injuries. He's incredibly injury prone, which could send some teams running.

Aaron Hardy, born on the 28th March 1996, supported his home club Liverpool. Nothing has ever come close to changing that. In his home street, he's the one to beat at football, no-one has ever succeeded to do so just yet. However, street football is a lot, lot different to real competitive football, so it'll be interesting to see how Hardy copes in the big world.

Clubs interested: Huddersfield Town, Watford, Leyton Orient

#12: Felipe Contran
Portugal has produced some great players over time - Eusebio, Cristiano Ronaldo, Nani, etc. Felipe Contran has the potential to be just like those, only with a hint of defense too. Contran is 16 years old, and is somehow eligible to play for England and Spain too! There will definitely be speculation as to what country he will decide to play for within the next 5 years or so. Felipe is loyal to his country, so the chances are most of his career will lie in Portugal, maybe an English or Spanish club here and there.

Felipe Contran has some strengths that are desired by many - creativity, acceleration, pace, long shots, marking, passing and influence to name a few. This is despite being at the young age of 15, he is already one of the world's greatest threats. Call him Adnan Januzaj if you wish.

Felipe Hugo Contran was born on the 23rd May 1996, in Lisbon, Portugal. His grandfather had an English/Spanish background, but has never bragged or boasted about this connection. We can understand England, but Spain? Anyway, Felipe grew up supporting the then successful Sporting Lisbon, but has seen his side decline. It will probably be the life long dream of his to play for and help his beloved side to the successes they used to have.

Clubs interested: Oriental Lisbon, Vitoria de Guimaraes, Tondela

#11: Justa Reflektor (Mikeedo)
Justa Reflektor, also known as Mikeedo to friends and family, is yet another Portuguese youngster, who should be part of the step forward the nation could take. Despite the unfortunate name, Reflektor has already had success in his 15 year life, with regional trophies coming through every year for school, as well as his former academy football team winning trophies all over the place. He already has the experience, but can he handle it real time?

Defensive player Justa Reflektor has his many strengths, that could be used to destroy teams. Some examples of these are amazing composure and determination, incredible strength and stamina, as well as outstanding heading and marking. However, he has extreme aggression, which could come as good or bad depending on the day.

Justa Neffin Reflektor, born in Lisbon on the 25th December 1996, supported clubs outside of his home town, other than Beira Mar, but this was his local club, whereas Bologna was the club he really followed. As a result of this, his style of football is very Italian, instead of Portuguese. This could give him more suitability to more clubs' style, however.

Clubs interested: Chaves, Leixoes, Tondela (too)
