The tournament welcomes all players - from the group-stage rookies to the long-ball lovers - to compete for the chance to represent their country at the final in Rio on the 2nd and 3rd of July, offering players the perfect opportunity to follow in the footsteps of their favourite footballers by creating the perfect assist or scoring a sumptuous last-gasp winner.
