Adam Federici, Reading
An outstanding prospect and the likely successor to Mark Schwarzer when Brazil comes around in 2014, Federici represents one of the finest goalkeeping prospects the country has ever seen. Plying his trade with Reading this season he’s shown strength in reflexes and resilience, often the star of his club side after a consecutive seasons being farmed out to lower league outfits on loan.

At 25 years old he’s already been involved at youth level for his country though senior chances have been understandably limited given the presence of the aforementioned Schwarzer. Federici got his big chance though during the 2008 Olympic Games campaign in Beijing whee he was particularly impressive and perhaps cemented his place as the Fulham man’s understudy. Crucially he’s now progressing in his development through consistent first team football.

Did you know?

During his time on loan with lower league club Maidenhead, Federici seriously injured himself after he fell down a well returning home from a nightclub with teammates.
