Today, we release another TFA Scouted Magazine for you – and this one is very, very special. Our video scouts spent the last month watching the FIFA U20 World Cup very closely, picking out those talents that were slightly more non-obvious than the players everyone is talking about after the event. We’ve chosen 21 of those players and scouted them in detail for you, plus adding in some cutting-edge visualisations plus using some xGOLD ai to tell you where we think they could and should move next.
