Potential wonderkids for FM22 Part 3

One of the most interesting things with FM every year is who the biggest wonderkids are. Every year we discover someone new and from a strange kind of connection to them. In FM21 Youssuofa Moukoko came late, but with enough time to undoudelty be the biggest wonderkid of them all. Maybe even the biggest ever?

Who to look out for in FM22?
As always it’s hard to predict who will be the biggest wonderkids, other than the obvious ones. I would guess 99% of all FM gamers are aware of the youth players who already made their mark on senior football. Therefore I’ve tried to come up with someone other than Pedri, Camavinga and Moukoko.

#AML Mathis Servais (2005) – Club Brugge – Belgium
Made his debut in the Proximus League just after turning 16 last year. He was also named on the bench for both games against Dynamo Kyiv in the Europa League. He didn’t get his debut for the first team, but it doesn’t seem to be far away. A classic winger with good pace and a strong left foot, Servais often beats his man with his good technique. Has a lot of work to do with the physical side of his game, but he’s young and that will come naturally. Expect him to be one of many in the pool of talents from Belgium in FM22.
PA Prediction: -8

#AMC Kacper Urbanski (2004) – Bologna – Poland
Only days or weeks too young to be involved in FM21, he will be a mainstay in the wonderkids shortlists this year. Urbanski became the youngest ever starter in Ekstraklasa in Poland before making the move to Bologna and became the youngest polish player in Serie A history when he made his debut in May 2021. An overall good player with maybe his physicality and defensive side of the game as his weakness. Urbanski is a real talent with a solid skillset and without a doubt will have a lot of room to grow in the future.

#AMR Amourricho van Axel Dongen (2005) – Ajax – Netherlands
Similar to Urbanski, he’s about a month too young to feature in FM21. This time around he will be in the game and by no doubt be one of the highest-rated wonderkids. Haven’t made his debut for Ajax yet, but he was handed his debut for Jong Ajax at 16 and played the two last games last season. Managed to get one assist and one goal in those two games, and he’s expected to have a bigger role for Jong Ajax this season.
He usually operates from the left and can both cut inside or go on the outside as he is good with both feet. His right foot is the best and he’s possibly most dangerous when he cuts inside between the lines and provides a lethal pass or goes directly on goal. He has also been praised for his attitude and leadership and could be a future captain in the making.
Expect him to make waves in FM22 and cost a lot to lure away from Ajax.

#ST Enrique Herrero Garcia (2005) – Frankfurt – Spain
The third talent from Spain to join Frankfurt in a few months, and possibly the biggest talent of them. The starlet left Villarreal this summer to join Frankfurt and he’s highly rated by the German club described as an exciting prospect with huge potential – Hopefully he will also be highly rated in FM22. The centre forward has a good history of scoring goals at youth level in Spain.

#CB Kerr Smith (2004) – Dundee United – Scotland
Played for Dundee against Sheffield United in a friendly last summer and had trials with both Aston Villa and Manchester United. Despite interest from the Premier League he decided to sign a professional contract with Dundee. He made his debut against Rangers at the end of last season and started 3 of the 4 games he was involved in. Expect him to be highly rated in FM22 and not so expensive to buy.
PA Prediction: –8

#AMR Jobe Bellingham (2005) – Birminham – England
He may be too young to feature on FM22 unless some agreement is agreed upon. Like SI did with Moukoko and Martin Odegaard. As most of you already know, Jobe has already featured on the bench for Birmingham and are still young enough to break his brother’s record as the youngest player for Birmingham. Hard to say what his strengths as a player are yet, but as he can play on both wings we can assume his a relatively modern attacker. Excited to see if he will be included in the game, let’s hope we don’t have to wait for FM23 to see him.

#CB Ethan Amundsen-Day(2005) – FC Copenhagen – Norway/England
Another Norwegian. Looks like they can have another golden generation coming up. Like another Norwegian you may have heard about, Erling Haaland, Amundsen-Day was born in Leeds and can also play for England. Deemed by experts in Norway as the biggest defensive talent in the country he was sold to FC Copenhagen for a record fee this summer. Will be hard to get at the start of the game and should be one to watch for a future transfer. Amundsen-Day has great speed and a good left foot, but it’s his mentality that people talk most fondly about. His mentality has been described as extreme, and I hope that is taken into account in the game.
PA Prediction: –75

#RB Erik Duenas(2004) – Los Angeles FC – United States/Mexico
Made his debut in the MLS last season at just 15 and is the 3rd youngest player to make his debut in the MLS. He actually is in FM21 with the wrong d.o.b, so you can check him out already. Duenas is a good defender, with a good mentality, who can also get forward and creating something. Also capable of playing on the left he can be a great addition to your team. It will be interesting to see just how highly he’s rated in FM22.
PA Prediction: –75

#AMR Montader Madjed(2005) – Varbergs BoIS – Sweden
The right-winger made his debut in Allsvenskan this summer. He’s been described as a super talent in Sweden already and that usually influence how players are rated in the game. Madjed looks most like an inverted winger with his good left foot and technique. He has decent pace and a good ability to beat his marker. Based on his club and league he should be quite easy to get to your club for a reasonable price.
PA Prediction: –75

#GK Marcel Mendes-Dudzinski(2005) – Pogon Szczecin – Poland/Brazil
First of all, he got a wonderful name. With that name, he must become a star!
He’s been talked about for some time already as a big talent. Mendes-Dudzinski got great size with his 193 cm, it’s interesting to see if his size is the main reason why he’s so highly taught of. He plays his games for the youth team and the reserves on the fourth tier for Polish football. Great matching for a keeper at 16 to play against men either way. Hopefully, he’s as highly rated in FM22 as he is in real life.
PA Prediction: –75
