The full list of Kopa Trophy 2022 nominees has been officially revealed by France Football. Barcelona midfielder Pedri became the third winner of the accolade last year, following in the footsteps of Kylian Mbappe and Matthijs de Ligt.
Pedri’s 2021-22 campaign was disrupted by injury, however, and Barca exited the Champions League at the group stage while finishing distant runners’ up to Real Madrid in La Liga.
The Kopa Trophy is expected to go to a new face in October, with Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka and Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham among the favourites after another season of impressive progress in England and Germany respectively.
The final nominees have been listed below, with familiar names included alongside a few up and coming prospects.
