At GSV, we take the self allotted duty of enlightening our readers on all matters sports related very seriously, especially when it comes to informing the fraternity as a whole about the stars of the future that are on the rise as well as those that are already making a splash in the fraternity at a tender young age; we are proud to present to you the GSV Hot List, the most authoritative young African talent index in the entire football realm. The GSV Hot List is our selection of the best u/23 footballers in their positions, ranking the lads against their competitors and giving you some information on the player; we aim to ensure that you remain entertained, informed and enlightened while growing your knowledge base. In the next few editions of the Grand Stand View Daily, we will be focusing on players that were on duty for their national teams in the 30th edition of Africa’s grandest football showpiece.
