Welcome to the 2nd edition of Le50. This is a collection of the best young footballers currently playing in France – all the players featured were born on or after the 1st of January 1991. The French Football Weekly team have spent the last few months deliberating and voting on who to include from a list of around 200 players. Some players’ names have been on the list since day one, some have made late runs to come out of nowhere, and some were very unlucky not to make the list.
This year’s edition has expanded to nearly double the size of last year’s document. The final word count is around 28,000 words, with each player receiving their own double-page spread. We hope that this has allowed us the space to bring you a comprehensive look at all 50 players and hopefully educate and excite at the same time.
We have little doubt that the players featured are the most promising talent that French football currently has to offer.
We hope you enjoy this year’s edition.
