World Cup Best XI


Recommended Posts

  • Administrator

GK - Pickford/Subasic 

Defs - Pavard, Maguire, Varane, Strinic (?) 

Midfielders - Pogba, Modric

Attacking mids - Mbappe, Hazard, Perisic 

Strikers - Griezmann 

 

Some tough choices and difficult to leave out Coutinho, Kane (Top scorer!), Cheryshev, Lozano, Inui but says a lot that of the players chosen all finished in top 4 of the tournament. 

Who's yours?

How did you know Maguire would be there xD.

Knew you'd first bite. 

Forgot to mention the Belgian defenders though Vertonghen and Alderweireld.

Except half of those players didn't play or were rubbish!

Pretty straight forward to me:

Courtois

Pavard - Mina - Hernandez

Pogba - Modric - De Bruyne - Hazard

Mbappe - Perisic - Griezmann 

 

Coutinho, Ronaldo, Ochoa, Lukaku, Pepe, Godin, Cavani, Cheryshev, Golovin, Mario Fernandes could have made it as well.

Kante? xD poor final performance and it's no coincidence France took over the game after he got subbed out...it's all good, Paul Pogba showed up 

 

Kante has the best defensive stats in the tournament, and by quite a margin. Pogba only looks good when there are other midfielders doing the dirty work. It is now an established fact. 

In 3 years, N'golo Kante has won 2 League titles, 1 FA Cup, and 1 World Cup

Courtois

Trippier - Varane - Vida - Strinic

Modric - Kante - Pogba

Mbappe - Lukaku - Perisic 

Didn't think any of the central strikers were great but Lukaku I'd say was better than the others that made it to the semi-final. Cavani was impressive before he got injured/Uruguay got eliminated but thought he didn't go far enough in the tournament so Lukaku it is.

Yesterday I went

Courtois

Trippier Varane Lovren Vrsaljko 

Kante Modric Hazard

Mbappe Kane Lukaku

 

After the final would be hard not to have Perisic/Griezmann/Pogba in there but who knows - when's the official one done?

Pickford (ENG)

Trippier (ENG) - Varane (FRA) - Godin (URU) - Hernandez (FRA)

Kante (FRA)

Modric (CRO) - De Bruyne (BEL)

Mbappe (FRA) - Kane (ENG) - Hazard (BEL)

 

Subs: Courtois (BEL), Thiago Silva (BRA), Umtiti (FRA), Pogba (FRA), Perisic (CRO), Mandzukic (CRO), Griezmann (FRA)

 

I found it very hard picking between Kane and Mandzukic. Kane edges it purely on goal total although I think there's an argument to say he was quiet in the last two games for us (not that I blame him entirely, he was absolutely fucked by that point)
