      Congrats Rhian, huge achievement for the lad. Now keep your head down and keep progressing, could have a couple of real quality forwards coming through in the youth ranks.

      Well in lad.

      I'd argue that all of them should slot into premier league teams. Watched the entire second half and they were fantastic! Clinical in every department, they were miles ahead in quality than any PL game I have seen in a long time.

      They did look good, but quality is only relative.  Will be interesting to see how many of them make the grade.

      Former U17 World Cup Golden Boot winners:

      2015 - Victor Osimhen (Nigeria), 18 years old, currently at Wolfsburg.
      2013 - Valmir Berisha (Sweden), 21, currently at Aalesunds FK.
      2011 - Souleymane Coulibaly (Ivory Coast), 22, currently free agent if wikipedia is correct. Silver Boot was our very own Yesil, now 23 at Panionios in Greece. Bronze Boot was Adryan from my Brazilian team Flamengo, currently at Sion in Switzerland.
      2009 - Borja (Spain), 25, on loan at Malaga from Swansea.
      2007 - Macauley Chrisantus (Nigeria), 27, currently at Lamia in Greece.
      2005 - Carlos Vela (Mexico), 28, currently at Real Sociedad, moving to Los Angeles FC soon.
      2003 - Cesc Fabregas (Spain), Carlos Hidalgo (Colombia),  Manuel Curto (Portugal). All 30 or 31 yo, at Chelsea, Sonsonate (El Salvador) and Torreense (Portuguese lower leagues) respectively.

      That's how far back in time you need to go to actually find someone who won the golden boot award at this competition and ended up "making it". Nigeria have won the competition more times than anyone else and that hardly translates to greatness in the first team either. England have now equaled Saudi Arabia and Switzerland with one trophy.

      So keep your head down and continue to hard work hard Rhian, this is hardly a massive achievement in the grand scheme of things - though it surely is at this stage for him - but it's important that he keeps his feet on the ground.

      No one, it's a nice achievement from a promising player, I just wanted to provide some context. U17 competitions are very early stages of a player's career, there's a long way to go yet.

      We are not basing how good he will be just from the golden boot award. Some of these players will be loaned to league teams in Jan to senior teams.

      Fair enough. I'm not saying the kid isn't good, just that we shouldn't take more from it than what's actually there. There's a tendency to overestimate players based on performances in those competitions and truth is that success at that level doesn't really seem to correlate much with success in professional football. It's still too early and some players develop faster but then others catch up and they end up looking far less special than they did among teenagers.

      Diego's right, f**k the joy and glory as our old managerial greats might say, it means f**k all if he doesn't carry on working to make the grade.

      To think that's how we used to celebrate our league championships, with the likes of coaches Fagan and Moran giving the players medals telling them it meant nothing and go out and do it all over again!!

      A good point worth noting.

      There was a stat on Match of the Day about England's Under 20 World Cup winners from this year (not the Under 17s) and only 4 of them have player a Premier League game this season.  This is 19/20 year olds who are the 'best in the world' and they aren't even getting games in their own league.

      Having seen that I can totally understand how 17 year olds have got almost no chance of getting a real opportunity.

      I genuinely believe that a La Liga model with 'B' teams up to the 2nd division would really give younger talented players an opportunity to shine because I'm not sure the U23 comps give enough challenge.  At 21,22 you should be playing in a competitive league against men not other boys IMO.

      There is nothing forcing Englands youngsters to sign for non English clubs, if they are good enough there are German, Spanish, Italian leagues etc... even Dutch, Japanese, Greek leagues etc... or failing that they can get loans in the Scottish leagues. If they want to stay in u23 they are hindering themselves, getting a loan deal locally is not always possible.

      Absolutely not. First impressions count.

      I’ve got this far in life assuming everyone (including my family - especially in some cases) are cu*ts until they prove definitively, over a sustained period, otherwise.

      Even then they only get a month to month pass.

      I am exactly the opposite, aasume everybody is good unless proven otherwise.  On a further note it is really cranking my gears the unending levels of negativity sometimes aimed towards our own players, a lot of it based on almost nothing whatsoever,  don't rate a player fine but ffs with fans like ours who needs enemies, i find that f**king annoying

      Nothing really happens in the professional game, just a slap on the wrist and that's it, right? So i don't see why anything would happen at youth level tbh. Maybe a 1k fine at best.

      He certainly has more chance of getting first team action there. I think it would be a good decision for him to leave and play regular football at one of the big leagues.
