PLAYERS TO WATCH

Sergio Cordova, Winger (Venezuela)

The 19 year old right winger has been a sensation for Venezuela so far top scoring for his nation with four goals so far.

The skillful and pacy rising star plays for Caracas Football Club in Venezula's Primera Division. He has been the focal point of his nation's Under-20 World Cup campaign and will lead the charge for Venezuela against England.

Wuilker Farinez (Venezuela)

Venezuela have been aware for a while that they have a potential top-class keeper on their hands - Farinez was part of the senior squad for the 2015 Copa America at the age of 17, and was first choice in the World Cup qualifiers at the end of March.

Has only conceded two goals in six matches and is an imposing figure for England to get the ball past.

Adalberto Penaranda (Venezuela)

Has the sort of silky skill and physical attributes that remind you of the best players in the world, just needs the workrate and discipline to match those abilities to become a fully rounded player. 

Has the potential to be the match-winner and is hard to miss with his shock of blonde hair.



Dominic Solanke, Striker (England)

Premier League fans will have their eyes firmly planted on the England striker when the 'Three Lions' run out tonight.

Solanke's high profile move from Chelsea to Liverpool was announced last month and he has given Reds fans plenty to be excited about with four goals so far this tournament.

A slick double in the semi-final against Italy helped his country reach the Under-20 World Cup decider and proved he has the mettle to handle the big games.

Jonjoe Kenny (England)

One of the stars of the tournament, Everton's rampaging right-back has made an appearance from the bench in each of the last two Premier League seasons. Toffees boss Ronald Koeman has promised him more chances next year, and on his performances at the tournament he certainly deserves them.

Ademola Lookman (England)

Everton paid Charlton £7.5m ($13.5m AUD) for the winger, who scored with almost his first touch in the Premier League against Manchester City.
He has bamboozled defences with his close control and trickery at the tournament. A star of the future.
