Germany currently has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to up-and-coming young stars. Thomas Muller, for example, is only 22 – but you’d be forgiven for thinking he was older, such were his performances at the 2010 World Cup. Holger Badstuber, Mats Hummels, Marco Reus and the Bender twins – all just 22. Mesut Ozil is practically a veteran at 23 years old.

So, out of those aged 21 and younger, who is the best? I have deliberately left the name Mario Gotze off this list, as I’ve no doubt he’d come top. So perhaps I should ask, out of those aged 21 and under, whose number isn’t Mario Gotze, who is the best young German prospect?

Please vote in this poll to decide. I’ve put a few names down, but I want as many opinions as possible, so feel free to use the ‘other’ box if I’ve missed out someone you feel is worthy. Thanks.
