#5 Abel Ruiz

The youngest player/captain from Spain squad is the latest sensation from Barcelona's famous La Masia academy. He is tall, more direct centre-forward with great finishing ability. 

He is having a dream tournament in India. He has scored six goals so far at the FIFA U17 World Cup 2017 which include a brace in the semifinal win over Mali. He also hit the last-minute winner against France in the round of 16 and scored again in the quarterfinal win over Iran.
