All the best English wonderkids on FIFA 19

England have not enjoyed a lot of success internationally, but that's not for a lack of quality players. From Gary Lineker to David Beckham and Wayne Rooney, England has produced a lot talented individuals who have all lifted silverware at club level. Buying the heroes of England's 2018 World Cup run to the semi-final will be hard. Harry Kane and John Stones won't come cheap. But what about the future stars of the Three Lions?
