World Cup 2018: Young players to watch in Russia

World Cup 2018: Young players to watch in Russia. from bbc football.

We already know about the superstars who could light up the 2018 Fifa World Cup, but what about the next generation of talent?

Few of the 736 players who could feature in Russia can be classed as total unknowns but there will still be some unfamiliar faces looking to announce themselves on the global stage.

Here, BBC Sport's TV and radio World Cup commentators pick out the 15 young players from outside the Premier League who are worth watching out for this summer.

World Cup 2018: Sam Allardyce 'jealous' of England successor Gareth Southgate


Former England boss Sam Allardyce says he is "jealous" of Gareth Southgate and believes it should be him leading the national team at the World Cup.

Allardyce left his post as England coach by mutual agreement in September 2016 after only one match in charge.

His exit followed claims by a newspaper that he gave advice on how to "get around" player transfer rules.

In a BBC documentary to air on Sunday, Allardyce said of his departure: "That decision was made very hastily."

Allardyce, 63, who has since gone on to manage Crystal Palace and Everton, was only at the helm for a World Cup qualifier in Slovakia in September 2016.

Adam Lallana's injury-time goal gave England a 1-0 win before Allardyce's reign ended after only 67 days, making him the national side's shortest-serving full-time manager.

He left after he was filmed by undercover reporters from the Daily Telegraph posing as businessmen for a meeting at which Allardyce reportedly said it was "not a problem" to bypass rules on third-party player ownership, and claimed he knew of agents who were "doing it all the time".

The Telegraph investigation also claimed that a £400,000 deal was struck for Allardyce to represent the company to Far East investors and to be a keynote speaker at events - although he stressed he would have to "run that by" his employers.

The FA called his conduct inappropriate and Allardyce made a "wholehearted apology" - adding that he recognised some of his comments had "caused embarrassment".

Nearly two years on, as the England team head to Russia for the World Cup, Allardyce said: "Jealous is what I feel. Massively disappointed. That should be me there. Unfortunately because of the circumstances that wasn't the case.

"One night I was playing golf - next day they said you can't carry on. And I still don't know why… because in the cold light of day, there was no substance, nothing behind it.

"If a bit more time was taken, a bit more patience, I believe I should still be the England manager."

Southgate replaced Allardyce and guided England to the top of their World Cup qualifying group unbeaten, with seven wins and two draws from his matches in charge.

The former coach said: "I've bounced back now - and while I will be extremely jealous I will be watching Gareth and the lads and hope they do extremely well."

Asked whether managing the national team was an impossible task, Allardyce added: "It's not the impossible job because people keep doing it. You've got to take the opportunity - it's the greatest challenge there is.

"I'm really proud to be the man in the spotlight, even though it wasn't for long enough. It will always be one of the biggest moments in my career."

I hadn't realised Lallana scored the winner. So we have a Liverpool player to thank for fat Sam having a 100% record? I feel dirty

I think Gareth has done a decent job, Spoke well and lowered expectations and has most of the nation behind him.

Just imagine a a Fat Sam team being led into the World cup.

So he's basically got the Real job for winning a few qualifiers v Macedonia and Liechtenstein with Spain and won't even manage them in a tournament. Not bad work!

Also typically classless of Him/Real doing that like 3 days before Spain's first world cup game.

Well done the Spanish FA, made the right call because Real and this guy are taking the piss. The least they could have done was wait until the WC was over before announcing. Serves him right, he will now miss out on a once in a lifetime chance of managing his country in a WC, all because of that horrible horrible club with no ethics

Idiots. On a more positive note, an interview with our coach, who is probably the most likable coach at the WC.

It could have been handled better surely but in the big scheme of things what does it matter....? It's not like he'll have a say in buying the players anyway so he won't be that distracted by the RM job while the WC is going on.

Having said that, this group are experienced enough and they will be able to self manage throughout the tournament although there may be a RM/Barca divide in the camp.

signed a contract extension with the national side 2 months ago. What a knob.

No may be about it, Spanish football is dominated by the rivalry, top to bottom. Barca fans would not have their players being told what to do by the Real manager.

Just Real not giving a fuck isn’t it? Conte managed Italy in the last tournament knowing he was going off to Chelsea, it just needs to be handled with a bit more professionalism.

So I read a little more on it and they've done the right thing in sacking him. The players asked for him to be kept but the Spanish FA said no chance - wonder if the president is a Catalan or Basque

Spain's first match is against Portugal.

I'm almost willing Ronaldo to get a hat trick.

Almost. He's still unbearable.
