πŸ’« All of the Golden Boy award winners since 2003 reads like a who's who of football

Atletico Madrid's talented 20-year-old João Félix scooped the prestigious award yesterday, adding his name to an esteemed list.

The Golden Boy award recognises the best player on the planet under the age of 21 for a calendar year. Félix beat out some pretty stiff competition for the award, including the likes of Jadon Sancho. The winners this decade have represented a variety of nations, with most of them going on to achieve great things in the beautiful game.

The award was inaugurated in 2003 with Dutchman Rafael van der Vaart collecting the prize in its first year. Here are all of the Golden Boy winners since then:
