Noa Lang (9/19)

One of the Under-19’s bright spots last season was 18-year-old midfielder Noa Lang. The former Feyenoord youth player has risen through the ranks in Amsterdam, finding himself the scorer of eight goals in 29 appearances for the U-19’s. What immediately sticks out when watching Lang is his supreme physical ability. His strength on the ball, stamina throughout the match, and speed on and off the ball are all seemingly miles ahead of his youth counterparts.

Noa Lang’s technical abilities don’t waver too much in the face of his physicality either. Lang has shown a great finishing ability, as well as tackling and passing. He always seems to pop up in the big moments, exemplified by his goal in the UEFA Youth League at Real Madrid. Lang will likely spend another year with the U-19’s but don’t be surprised to see him with the first team within a couple seasons.
