Lionel Messi, aka “La Pulga”
“CR7” Cristiano Ronaldo
England’s Harry Kane
Kylian Mbappe, France
Kylian Mbappe, a player with lightning speed and the ability to score on the field, is beloved throughout France. He is currently playing for Paris Saint-Germain and the French national team. Mbappé became the youngest French player to score at a World Cup and the second youngest player, after Pelé, to score in a World Cup final at the 2018 FIFA World Cup. The French team won the World Cup in 2018. Mbappe also earned the prize for the best young player.
Mbappe began his career with AS Monaco, making his debut in 2015 at the age of 17. He won the Ligue 1 title with the club, as well as the Young Player of the Year award and the Golden Boy honor. He joined Paris Saint-Germain in 2017 for a fee of 180 million euros. With this massive contract, he became the second most expensive player in history, as well as the most expensive young football players.
Croatia’s Luka Modric
American Christian Pulisic
The US team entered this World Cup with high expectations. The pressure will undoubtedly fall on Christian Pulisic, who hasn’t been at his best recently in club play. Christian Pulisic made history by becoming the youngest captain in football history during the 2018 World Cup (since 1990). He was also a standout football player that year. He had recently turned 20. This World Cup has 24-year-old Christian Pulisic as a competitor.
Belgian Kevin De Bruyne
Danish citizen Christian Eriksen
Japan’s Daichi Kamada
During this World Cup, Japan has a chance to advance. Japan’s starting lineup features a lot of attractive football players despite its lack of depth, especially midfielder Daichi Kamada. A group of talented, dedicated football players are expected to have an effect in the World Cup, led by the offensive midfielder.
The host team’s Akram Afif Qatar
Akram Afif will likely be one of the players on the Qatari team who draws the most attention when they compete in the World Cup for the first time in 2022. He once played for Villarreal of Spain. The 25-year-old struck a fascinating connection with Almoez Ali for the visiting team, which made him stand out amid Sanchez’s players. Akram Afif was also slated to play a big part for Qatar leading up to the World Cup. Check out the vintage World Cup gear from Corkyshirt below if you’re a fan of the host nation.
German Jeremy Kimmich
The German team’s cohesion and discipline were key factors in the “tank’s” success. Because Ronaldo of Portugal is the most attractive “star” player, there has previously been talk of a “one-star squad.” On the other side, Joshua Kimmich’s ability to control game speed gives him the chance to make a difference for Germany in the World Cup.
The players from each team competing in the 2022 World Cup that are considered to be the best are mentioned above. We’ll have to wait and see who performs the best at the World Cup this year!
