FIFA 20 wonderkids: All of the highest potential players in Career Mode

It's your last chance to grab some FIFA 20 wonderkids – as I write this its successor is less than two months away from release. But FIFA 20 remains perfectly playable in the meantime, with a series of patches rendering career mode decent following an infamously poor start to the season. Below we'll take you through the top 25 players in the mode aged 21 or under, to form your best FIFA 20 wonderkids guide.

Best FIFA 20 wonderkids

Some of the very best FIFA 20 wonderkids are already world renowned, like Kylian Mbappe – who was recently included in the FIFPro World XI for the 2018/19 season. While Mbappe and co. will be included in this list, everyone knows about them, so I'd like to highlight some of the lesser known players in the top 25 best wonderkids.

Dominik Szoboszlai

An 18-year-old Hungarian who is already a first team player for the national team and has made more than 50 appearances for Red Bull Salzburg, Szoboszlai may have a hard name to pronounce now but in a few years, it will roll off the tongue when you've heard it so many times.

He's a centre attacking midfielder with four star skill moves, he's 6'1", and boasts incredibly well rounded attacking stats. The highlight is that while he's only got a 74 overall at the moment, his potential is 89; a whopping +14 increase. Valued at £10m, the chap is only on £500/week wages. Bargain!

Lucas Paqueta

Slightly older but just as impressive as Szoboszlai is Lucas Paqueta, another CAM hailing from Brazil and plying his trade for Milan in Serie A. You'll be picking up more of a finished product here as he's currently 21, but it does mean his current overall is 79 with a +10 potential gain to 89.

Of course, this means you'll be forking out slightly more money, as he's already worth £18m and is on £26k/week, but it should pay off if you can afford it.

Pedro de la Vega

Someone even younger this time, Pedro de la Vega is an excellent winger who is a natural on the right, but can switch to the left side of the pitch at ease. Boasting 86 pace, a current rating of 70 but an 88 potential, you'll need to pry him from the clutches of Argentinian club Lanus in his home nation.

Since he's only 17, his estimated value is just £3.1m, and he earns £4.4k/week. The only downside is his three star skill moves – ideally you want four stars or more, but if you're not fond of the Cruyff turn and rainbow flick anyway then you won't be missing out on much.
