Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood has been named as the second best U20 player in the world.

This is according to CIES Football Observatory’s top-100 list of the best U20 footballers in the world.

The Man United teenager is only behind Barcelona midfielder Pedri, who played 13 more games than him last season.

Greenwood scored more goals than any other player in the top-10 despite a slow start to last season.

However, he has made a bright start to the current season, scoring two goals in just two games this season.
