#1 Jan Fiete-Arp (Germany)
An out and out centre-forward who idolises Harry Kane, Germany's number nine Jan Fiete-Arp is going to be leading the strike force for Deutschland in the FIFA U17 World Cup in October. Arp, who already has his name in the record books for the fastest hattrick in the European U17 Championship history with a hattrick in just 13 minutes, scored 7 goals in 5 matches for Germany in the tournament before they crashed out on penalties to eventual champions Spain.
Arp, currently plays for Hamburger SV's junior side and has been there in the club's youth setup since 2010. He once scored 16 goals in a match while playing for the Hamburger SV U12 side in a match which they won by 22 goals!
He has put on impressive performances for his club in recent times too.scoring 37 goals in 45 matches while playing for the U17 side. Arp, who is far from the finished article can score with both his feet and is good in the air too and would be one to watch out for as he takes charge for the Germans going forward in the U17 World Cup.
