This is a downloadable shortlist which you can load directly into FM22! Once it has been loaded in your game you have a list with the 423 best players aged under 21!

What are wonderkids?

Wonderkids are young players in Football Manager with a massive potential. For our list the players must be 21 or younger and have a Potential Ability of at least 150. Some of the players are also shown as wonderkids in FM22, but most of them aren't labeled as a wonderkid but do have the potential to become a very good player. We have made sure that only the best young players in FM22 are on the list.


This list with FM22 Wonderkids has been created by using a large database and loading ALL nations and ALL competitions loaded. The total amount of players on this list could therefore vary depending on the size of your database and number of nations loaded.


  • 423 players on the list
  • Every player on this list is at most 21-years-old.
  • Potential is at least -8 or 150+

Other FM22 Shortlists

Next to the best Wonderkids, we have also created shortlist for the best Free Agents and best Backroom Staff. Both files are available for download and can be used directly in Football Manager 2022.
