Gabriel Jesus

Gabriel Jesus is one of the most exciting young strikers in the world, boasting a remarkable goals-per-game ratio. He has already gone on to lift every trophy England has to offer, including back to back Premier League and Carabao Cups and one FA Cup. He scored the goal that saw Man City secure 100 Premier League points in the 2017/18 season – the first time in English top-flight history. On the international stage, Jesus has already established himself as Brazil’s main striker, winning an Olympic gold medal in 2016 and a Copa America in 2019.

Gianluca Busio

Gianluca Busio is a homegrown player for Sporting KC and one of the most promising talents in the MLS. Busio is a versatile and hard-working midfielder with great vision and passing ability. He earned his club debut at 16 years and nine days old, playing in the U.S. Open Cup, before landing his MLS debut against FC Dallas on July 2018. He is the third-youngest player to start a match in league history and the second-youngest to record an assist at 16 years and 68 days. In Oct. 2018, Busio became the second-youngest goal scorer in MLS history breaking another record in 2019 when he became the youngest player to score in back-to-back regular-season matches.

The records don’t stop there, in 2020, Busio blossomed into an integral member for Sporting KC, making his 50th appearance for the club in all competitions – the youngest to do so. At just 18, he became the second-youngest player, since 2010, to record two assists in a game and is one of the only five active MLS players to record five goals and five assists in the regular season before his 19th birthday.

On the international stage, Busio has represented the U.S. at U15 and U17 levels and is part of the current U20 pool looking to qualify for the FIFA World Cup in Indonesia next summer.

Roberto Martinez

Roberto made an impressive 423 career appearances throughout 16 seasons as a player. He was best known for his successful spells at Wigan Athletic and Swansea where he showed his extensive knowledge of the game and leadership qualities. After his retirement in 2007, he naturally progressed into management and had great success at his former clubs; winning the EFL League One title in his first season with Swansea and leading Wigan Athletic to its first-ever FA cup victory. In 2016, he was appointed Belgium’s National Team head coach and guided them to third place at the 2018 World Cup - the highest ever finish in Belgium football history.

Daniel Sturridge

Daniel is one of the greatest players to have graced the English top flight in the modern era. Having scored 21 goals in the 2013 / 2014 season, Daniel finished as the highest English goal scorer in the Premier League and was the fastest player in LFC history to score 20 goals, beating Liverpool legends such as Suarez, Rush, Owen or Fowler. His supreme finishing ability saw him maintain a goal rate of around one-in-two across his six-and-a half years with Liverpool. He went on to become the youngest ever player to win the Champions League twice, Premier League and FA Cup. Off the pitch Daniel continues to stand out, though his charity work with The Sturridge Foundation, and his well-documented interests in fashion and music, making him a leading personality and role model.

Graeme Le Saux

Graeme made over 400 senior appearances and was twice named in the Professional Footballers' Association Team of the Year (1995 & 1998). Le Saux made 36 appearances for England from 1994 until 2000. Since retirement, Graeme has led a successful career in the media, working on BBC Match of the Day, BBC 5 live and TalkSPORT. Now a Chelsea FC Ambassador and consultant to the FA, Graeme remains one of the most well respected footballers of all time, and is a popular motivational speaker. In 2016/17 Premier League season, Graeme is playing a lead role for NBC in their record breaking coverage of the Premier League in America.
