Although only 15 years old, Ilaix Moriba is already making waves at FC Barcelona. Already a Blaugrana to the core, his swashbuckling style of play is inspired by the club's senior players—but also by the energy of the city he's called home since he was eight.

Having stepped up from Barça's U16 team to the U18s, this prodigious box-to-box midfielder is the embodiment of the PhantomVSN 'Rising Fire'. This summer, he helped the team secure a 5-0 victory in the mini-Clásico against their arch rivals, completing a hat-trick with an outrageous goal straight from the second-half kick-off.

There's still a long way for him to go, but he's in the best place he can be. In his career—like on the pitch—he's always looking straight ahead, never losing sight of his goal.
