    How is it possible that Bellingham is still just 18 years old as of June 2022? How?? The Birmingham City academy product was expected to gradually find his feet in German football before earning a role in the starting XI down the line, but the English midfielder's already played almost 100 games for Dortmund after immediately being thrown into first-team action. "Hey Jude" is solid in possession and intense on the press, traits which have already earned the young talent numerous call ups to the Three Lions.

    Müller has long been the gold standard when it comes to creating goals for teammates. Müller topped the Bundesliga assists charts again this term, with 18, as his all-time league record of 162 (59 more than 2nd place Franck Ribéry) callously sails further into the distance. On top of it all, Müller earned his 10th straight Mesiterschale this past season.

  • Christopher Nkunku

    Nkunku took his game to meteoric heights in 21/22. So much so, the €13 million RB Leipzig paid PSG for the midfielder in 2019 looks more like highway robbery each passing day. Nkunku scored 20 goals and added 13 assists in 34 Bundesliga appearances - an astonishing return and one of two players (M. Diaby) to go double digits in both categories. Added to the fact, the Frenchman netted seven times in six Champions League outings to keep RB Leipzig competitive in a group that featured Man City and PSG.

  • Joshua Kimmich

    No Bundesliga midfielder has a higher pass completion rate than Kimmich’s 88.6%. As Bayern’s metronome, Kimmich is the beating heart of his side, setting the tempo from deep and winning the ball back tenaciously when the Bundesliga juggernauts lose it. Kimmich is a natural leader with superb vision, as evidenced by his high league rankings in total passing, through balls, chances created, and expected threat (xT) from passes.

    In the 21/22 campaign, Reus was 1 goal short of double digit goals to go along with his double digit assists for the season. The Borussia Dortmund talisman tallied his highest mark in assists per 90 minutes in 8 seasons, while finishing 3rd in the league in goal creating actions and completed live ball passes that led to a goal.

    • Position: Forward
    • Birthplace: Dortmund, Germany

  • Alphonso Davies

    Davies was sidelined in early January due to symptoms of a mild heart condition (myocarditis) following a bout of COVID-19, but the Ghana-born Canadian international returned to the pitch in April 2022. While the stats obviously won't pop off the page, soccer fans are acutely aware of the Davies' prodigious talent. The winger is one of the fastest players on earth and a menace working the left sideline. He'll rightly earn mention on just about everyone's “World Cup Players to Watch” lists this fall.
