[COUNTDOWN: Canada 2014] Alex Morgan, Sydney Leroux and Christine Sinclair all starred at previous editions of the Under-20 Women's World Cup. Who will be the star at Canada 2014? There are plenty of young stars who have already made a name for themselves, including American Lindsey Horan. For a look at seven players to watch at the Under-20 Women's World Cup that kicks off on Tuesday.

Under-20 Women's World Cup:
Viewing Schedule

KADEISHA BUCHANAN (Canada).
The West Virginia University defender became the first Mountaineer freshman to earn All-American honors when she was selected to the NSCAA second team in 2012. Born in Toronto to Jamaican parents, Buchanan scored for Canada's senior national team in its 1-1 tie with the USA in May.

LINDSEY HORAN (USA). Horan became the first American to sign a pro contract out of high school with a foreign club when she signed with Paris St. Germain in 2012. She recently re-signed for two more years after scoring 32 goals in two league seasons. She missed the 2012 U-20 World Cup in Japan with a knee injury. She debuted for the senior national team at the 2013 Algarve Cup.

JANG SELGI (South Korea). The 20-year-old Kang won the 2010 U-17 Women's World Cup in Trinidad & Tobago as a defender but now plays up front for the U-20s, for whom she is the captain. This is her second under-20 tournament.She was the MVP and leading scorer at the 2013 U-19 Asian Women's Championship South Korea.

LINA MAGULL (Germany). The 19-year-old midfielder has played two seasons for Wolfsburg, winning back-to-back German and European titles. Her 2013-14 UEFA Women's Champions League season was cut short by an ankle injury but not before she scored four goals in one game. She came on as a sub in the 2012 U-20 Women's World Cup final Germany lost to the USA.

GRIEDGE MBOCK BATHY (France). The giant defender led France to the 2012 Under-17 Women's World Cup title and already a member of the Bleues, the senior national team, along with U-20 teammates Sandie Toletti and Marine Dafeur. She plays for  Guingamp in Ligue Feminine, where she has been named the top young player two years in a row.

ASISAT OSHOALA (Nigeria).
Oshoala, who starts for the Super Falcons, Nigeria's senior national team, returns for her second tournament with the Falconets. In 2012, they finished fourth, losing to the USA in the semifinals and host Japan in the third-place game after opening with four shutout wins.
