TOP 20 NATIONS TO SCOUT TO FIND THE BEST REGENS


How important is scouting in Football Manager? Well, it can be as important as you want it to be BUT if you are searching for the very best wonderkids in FM21 then scouting will be very important and useful. In FM21, you are able to build your scouting knowledge across the world in attempt to find the next Lionel Messi, Ronaldinho or Robbie Savage ;)


This list of 20 nations will include some of the bigger nations but also we have some of the 'lesser' known nations as they have a great chance of producing the NEXT big thing!


I simulated 3 years so the screenshots provided are regens produced within the 3 years. The more years you play in FM, you may notice some nations started to produce better regens over time. Example, the quality of regens produced in Jordan may be better in 2030 than in 2020.


Lastly, make sure you have players from these nations loaded when starting a new save. That will be vital in finding regens in these nations.

CONCLUSION

Now as you can see, just because a nation has a better youth rating, does not mean the quality of regen will be better. There will be a number of factors such as the clubs inside of the nation. Clubs will usually need to have decent Youth Recruitment and Junior Coaching to bring in better levels of regens and also perform well in continental competitions. Also how the nation performs in national competitions can be a factor. If Jordan won the World Cup, could their reputation rise and also the level of regens coming through that nation?
