3. Dominik Szoboszlai - Hungary

There's not a world of difference between this situation and Gakpo's.

Szoboszlai has done a good deal better at adapting to the more central role he's forced to play at Liverpool, slotting in as a CAM more often than not, but he consistently puts in his best performances for country, where his role much more closely resembles a left midfielder or left winger.

The one wrinkle is that while Gakpo will, amusingly enough, still be captained by Virgil van Dijk this summer, Szoboszlai is the captain for Hungary, an incredible honor at the age of 23.

This will be his first big-tournament shot, as he was injured at the last Euros and Hungary have not qualified for a World Cup in quite some time, so he will be incredibly eager to impress.

Germany will be a tough squad, but with Switzerland and Scotland in Hungary's group, there will certainly be opportunities for this rising star to make an impact in his most natural position.
