Wing backs are becoming more and more influential in football – not only are they required to defend, but they are also expected to advance up the pitch, overlapping wingers, providing additional attacking options. Signing young wonderkids is a great way to sign a quality left back for a minimal fee.

Here we list all the best wonderkid RB’s in FIFA 20 – these players are aged 19 or younger at the start of the Career mode season, and have the highest potential upsides of all the young players.
