Player of the tournament?

Post by e17 » Thu Jul 12, 2018 9:55 am

So it's nearly over now apart from the REALLY big game (& France v Croatia for 1st & 2nd I suppose :wink: ), short of someone having a moment of Zidane headbutting style madness in the final, I think it's fair to ask who people think the player of the tournament has been?

For me; Modric, with Trippier as young player of the tournament.

Thoughts?

Yeah. That sounds like a good idea.

Perhaps next time we could have one.

Kylian Mbappe for both. I think he'd have ripped our defence a new one if we'd made the final.

Can't look past Mbappe. Has grown and grown as the tournament has progressed into the latter stages and been the focal point for most French attacks. An absolute joy to watch and I cannot wait to see him play on Sunday.

Kante.

Best player on the pitch in just about every game I've seen him.

England: Henderson, Trippier & Pickford.
ROTW: Kante, Modric, Mbappe. And dare I say it, both Pogba and Fellaini impressed me when they played.

Modric. Has been quality all the way through. Young player has to be Mbappe.

Modric and Mbappe and the result of the final on Sunday will determine who gets the final nod

Modric, Lukaku, Mbappe, Pickford and Trippier.

There does not appear to have been as many stand out performers in this World Cup and more good group efforts.

Modric and Varane. 2 Champions League winners who will now have the chance to become a World Champion.

N'Golo Kante

The best ball winning player I have ever seen. He's a phenomenon.

He's not even been the best player in the French team let alone the tournament.
