It's time to find out how much we can trust FIFA 15 as a barometer of the game's best young talent.

The shortlist has been released for the highly-coveted European Golden Boy award, which crowns the most impressive young talent on the continent of the previous 12 months. Previous winners include Lionel Messi, Paul Pogba and...Anderson.

The shortlist has been decided by journalists from some of Europe's most respected newspapers, which includes L'Équipe, Marca and The Times. To the casual football fan, the most important question is: should I get these rough diamonds on Ultimate Team?

We've taken 30 names from the European Golden Boy shortlist and found out just how good they are (according to EA Sports).
