Colombia U-17 team

There's only a week to go before youth football’s biggest extravaganza begins in India. India is all set to host this year’s FIFA U-17 World Cup and some of the teams have already arrived.

All the squads for the FIFA U-17 World Cup have been already named and there is no doubt that many players playing in this tournament will be seen at Qatar in 2022 or who knows, they might even make Russia for next year’s FIFA World Cup.

Free-kick goals have always been one of football's great beauty. We have seen a lot of spectacular free kicks from legends like Cristiano Ronaldo, Roberto Carlos among others. Now let us take a look at top 5 young free-kick takers who will be displaying their skills in the showpiece event.

#5 Luis Miguel Lopez - Colombia

The least-known name in the list. The South American 16-year-old striker is not a regular free kick taker. The Santa Fe player just scored one goal in the qualifiers which was a free kick, a beautiful curler from a considerable distance. Let's hope to see more free kicks from Miguel Lopez in India.
