Liverpool defender Joe Gomez and Chelsea striker Dominic Solanke have been named in Marca's team of the best U19 players around the world. Marca, one of Spain's leading sport dailies, have also named West Ham United's 17-year-old centre half Reece Oxford and Celtic's 18-year-old fullback Kieran Tierney in their side, which takes into account players who have already made their competitive debuts.
Benfica starlet Renato Sanches, who remains heavily linked with a move to Manchester United amid his excellent break-out campaign for the Portuguese giants, takes a place in midfield alongside Anderlecht midfielder Youri Tielemans and Porto's Ruben Neves.
Martin Odegaard, now a regular in lists such of these, takes his spot in attack while Milan's 16-year-old goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma is named in goal.
Gomez, one of Brendan Rodgers' final signings as Liverpool manager, enjoyed a hugely impressive start to life at the club following his summer arrival from Charlton Athletic for a reported fee of £3.5m ($4.9m). His season was cut short in September however when he suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury while on international duty with England's Under-21s.
Solanke, meanwhile, has spent the season on loan in Netherlands with Vitesse Arnhem, where he has struck five goals so far. The striker made his first-team debut under Jose Mourinho at Chelsea in a Champions League group tie in 2014, going onto play an integral role in the Chelsea sides that won the FA Youth Cup and Uefa Youth League later that season.
His loan, where he joined four other Chelsea hopefuls in Netherlands, initially came as a surprise following comments from his then-manager Jose Mourinho, who questioned the logic of allowing such a bright young talent to leave the club.
"His experience this season has been magnificent," Mourinho was quoted as saying by Get West London in April 2015. "In my opinion, next year, he has two ways to go. One would be a big mistake and another one is the correct direction. To go on loan for a Championship team, or to another team in England or in Europe, would be a big mistake.
"Staying at Chelsea, training with the first team, having pre-season with the first team, some periods covering the main strikers, playing for the U21s and U18s every week. I think he would never need to go out on loan and just go step by step here and in a couple of years he'll be a first-team player."
West Ham's Oxford made his competitive debut at the age of 16 for the club in a Europa League qualifier in July. He later turned in a hugely impressive performance against Arsenal on the first day of the 2015-16 season, becoming the second youngest Premier League starter of all-time in a game where he helped his side secure a 2-0 win.
