Market Trend #6 - EURO Under 21's (Forwards & Wingers)

Updated: Feb 3

The EURO under 21's tournament can be a great place to find young talents and players that perform well are likely to increase massively in price based on the speculation of how good they could become.


For example, Robin Hack has more than doubled in price since scoring a hat-trick for Germany under 21's during the last international break.


I have gone through over 100 players that are likely to feature in the EURO under 21's and have highlighted below 4 attacking players which could increase in price further if they were to perform well for their under 21's side.
