    These are the players whose performances I really loved the most in this WC.
    Not the best possible team out of all the players, but all good ones nonetheless.
    Agree, Behrami destroyed Neymar in openning game, too bad he didn't get far in this WC though. Bentancur wasn't that good in my opinion.

    I thought it was only fitting to use the formation of choice of the best coach, in my opinion.
    You only have 10 players...

    Mine:

    Pickford

    Thiago Silva - Varane - Vida

    Modrić - Casemiro

    Mbappe - Hazard - Ivan Perisic

    Kane - Lukaku

    Coach: Martinez

    My opinion.

    Coach: Martinez

    GK: Pickford

    Centerbacks: Umtiti, Varane, and Vida

    Defensive mid: Modric and Pogba

    Right mid: Hazard

    Left mid: de Bruyne

    Attackers: Mbappe, Lukaku and Griezman

    I thought it was only fitting to use the formation of choice of the best coach, in my opinion.

    Edit: hehe I had only selected ten players.

    I'll be bold and give an honorable mention to Vida. What a heroic tournament from a frankly "nothing" club player. Really shows what motivation can do, because Vida was simply world class the whole tournament.
    I'd put Lukaku at ST instead of Mario.

    Subašić was Croatia's weak link if anything.

    My best 11 from the World Cup. These guys impressed me a lot.
    Honorable mentions: De Bruyne, Coutinho, James. In fact I'd put one of the three in there instead of Mandzukic, this WC had no real good striker anyway. Mandzukic fucked it all up in the final.

    Concussion ?

    I can't explain it, that was a brain fart from him
    But he made extraordinary saves vs Uruguay & Belgium that took France to the final

    so making 5 saves vs Croatia in a world cup semi-final (including this crucial save vs Mandzukic) is shameful, while Subasic making 0 saves in the same game is considered important in Croatia's road to the final?

    I know you dislike English players, but that's unfair ... Pickford had a great world cup and was better than Subasic whose positioning and reaction are close to 0 (and like I already said he was only good in that penalty shootout vs Denmark, nothing special in all the other games)

    Anyway I won't talk a lot about it, I'll just invite you to watch these saves:

    and these goals conceded:
