EA SPORTS has lifted the lid on the top 20 highest rated wonderkids in FIFA 21, including Jadon Sancho, French world champion Kylian Mbappe, and a host of hidden gems ⁠— here are all the players with the highest potential in Career Mode.

FIFA 21 dubbed the players “the talent you want in your squad to help you dominate for years to come,” and the devs couldn’t be more correct ⁠— these are some of the biggest rising stars in world football heading into the 2020/21 season.

The list boasts a few players that were also going to be included, like FIFA 21 cover stars Kylian Mbappe, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Joao Felix.


EA has included a few youngsters already hitting a top-level, like Marcus Rashford, Chelsea’s new midfielder Kai Havertz, and more. There are also some stars still on the rise, like Sandro Tonali ⁠— who just joined AC Milan on a €10m loan ⁠— and Real Madrid’s flashy new €45m Brazillian winger Rodrygo.

Here’s the full list of wonderkids that you should be hustling to buy as soon as you start your FIFA 21 career mode campaign in the 2020 title.
