The finals of the 2019 Generation adidas Cup are just around the corner, with a full slate of international opposition heading to Frisco, Texas to line up against the best MLS academies this month.

Below is a look at 10 players to know ahead of the finals (listed in alphabetical order). Nine have already signed a pro contract with either an MLS or USL side with the only exclusion being Kobe Hernandez-Foster.
