Golden Boy 2019 Nominees: 100-Man Shortlist Reduced to 80

The Golden Boy 2019 nominees list has been whittled down to 80, with English stars Jadon Sancho, Phil Foden and Callum Hudson-Odoi all still in the hunt. 

Italian publication Tuttosport initially released a list of 100 nominees for the under-21 award, with a public vote determining who made it through to the next stage. That reduced shortlist has now been unveiled, with voting open once more for the next round.

In the first crop, there were 16 English representatives, but this has now been shortened to 12, with Manchester United's Angel Gomes, Borussia Monchengladbach's Keanan Bennetts, Liverpool's Rhian Brewster and Arsenal's Charlie Gilmour among those to drop out. 

However, alongside frontrunners Sancho (with the Borussia Dortmund man the particularly hot favourite to take home the award), Foden and Hudson-Odoi, there was still plenty of cause for optimism, especially for the London sides. 

All of Chelsea's three English candidates remain, with Dujon Sterling and Mason Mount rounding up the domestic list alongside Wales' Ethan Ampadu and the Ivorian Marc Guehi. 

The same goes for Arsenal, who retain Eddie Nketiah, Reiss Nelson and Joe Willock as well as Frenchman Mateo Guendouzi, while north London rivals ​Tottenham still boast both Tashan Oakley-Boothe and Oliver Skipp.

Wolves' Morgan Gibbs-White completes the anglo list, while other prominent names include recent Atletico Madrid signing Joao Felix, Juventus' Moise Kean, last year's winner and newly confirmed Juve player Matthijs de Ligt, Roma's Nicolo Zaniolo and Real Madrid's Brazilian pair of Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.
