The F2 Freestylers, Jeremy Lynch and Billy Wingrove, are two of the biggest football content creators in the world, with over 12m followers across their social media channels.
The duo have filmed videos with a number of football's biggest stars, including the likes of Marcus Rashford, Neymar and Lionel Messi, but they have also trained with some top Premier League players before they hit the big time.
Speaking exclusively to Daily Star Sport on behalf of Panasonic Grooming, Lynch and Wingrove named Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold, West Ham midfielder Declan Rice and Tottenham ace Dele Alli as three players they knew would go on to become big stars.
"When he [Alexander-Arnold] first came on the scene, I remember us having a conversation about him, and now everyone knows [how good he is], but where we work quite closely with players I think we’re quite good at noticing little things that show if a player’s going to be really good technically [and he was one of those players]," Lynch said.
"The other two players that come to mind for that are Dele Alli and Declan Rice."
Lynch and Wingrove shot videos with both players before they became household names, filming with Dele before he had made his Tottenham debut in 2015 and filming with Rice when he was still a teenager.
"Before Dele came on the scene we had done a shoot with him and we were talking to each other afterwards and just raving about him," Lynch said.

"Declan Rice early on [surprised us]. I think he was 16 at the time."
Wingrove added: "These are players, all three of them, where you turn up to a shoot and they all play in different positions but technically on the ball they can do everything.
"You don’t see it with Declan Rice in particular because he plays holding midfield or sometimes even centre back, but his technical ability on the ball is phenomenal.
"His touch, his control, the skills, left foot, right foot, he’s got every attribute in the locker. Just a top, top player.
"Going back to Trent, if he’s not already, he’s going to be the best right-back of all time in my opinion. He’s smart. He can play in midfield, he can do a job anywhere to be honest, but you don’t get defenders with his kind of ability.
"It’s just incredible, on the ball he’s phenomenal and his defending is second to none as well."
