Golden Boy 2022: Only 40 names left. There is a Pole!

Tuttosport has recently published a list of 40 Golden Boy nominees. Nicola Zalewski was on it.

Golden Boy is an award for the best footballer under the age of 21 playing on the Old Continent. For many years, “Tuttosport” has started the plebiscite with the announcement of a list of 100 nominees, and over time this group has been reduced. It is no different this time.


While at the beginning three Poles were nominated, now this number has been reduced to only one representative of our nation. It is Nicola Zalewski, who performs in AS Roma.


For the pendulum, it is quite an ennoblement, because he was among such players as Jude Belligham, Eduardo Camavinga, Joško Gvardiol, Ansu Fati, Gavi, Ryan Gravenberch and Pedri, among others.
