Kylian Mbappe: France

Fast, tricky, lethal, and ambitious, KylianMbappe is not a prodigy anymore. At the age of 19, he is considered as one of the best players in France, and certainly one of the brightest young talents. He has wreaked havoc since joining PSG from AS Monaco, and helped them win a double. Along with Neymar and Cavani, the trio has made a mockery of other French clubs. Despite, Neymar’s star status Mbappe hasn’t allowed all the limelight to be hogged by the Brazilian.

A Cristiano Ronaldo fan, Mbappe is a prolific forward whose pace helps him play on the wings. His arrival meant Draxler and Di Maria were relegated to a spot on the bench. Mbappe will be key to France’ second World Cup hopes and will form an effective partnership with Griezmann. One can expect Deschamps to name him in his starting XI.

GK: Hugo Lloris

Captain of unarguably the most talented squad in the World Cup, pressure will be more than anything on Lloris than one could contemplate. It is never easy to manage a dressing room full of stars and for France, it is an even bigger headache. Les Blues have already left behind the likes of Martial, Benzema and Lacazette who are well good enough to be selected for the national team. With Koscielny now ruled out, Lloris is the only experienced senior player in the team alongside BlaiseMatuidi, who is not so known for his leadership qualities. Lloris will have the task of organizing the French squad and keeping them focussed enough to make their talent count as a team rather than as an individual.

5) Being the oldest to ever play the World Cup

Essam El-Hadary of Egypt could become the oldest player ever to play in the World Cup and will surpass Faryd Mondragon of Colombia. Faryd broke the record of Roger Milla in the previous World Cup. El-Hadary despite his age is considered to be Egypt’s number 1 and his athleticism will make you revisit your training plans. El-Hadary has played 158 times for Egypt and is third in the list of most capped player in their history.

El-Hadary’s role will be equally crucial and after Salah’s injury, which could mean that Egypt will need to do it without their talisman in the opening match of the group against Uruguay.

5) Iago Aspas

Aspas arrived at Anfield after impressing with Celta mainly to provide strong backup to Luis Suarez, who was prone to suspensions at the time. Things went quite well for Aspas in the early part of his Liverpool career as he blossomed in Suarez’s absence. However, once Suarez returned, things only went on a downward spiral for the Spaniard as he found gametime hard to come by. Alongside Suarez was a fully fit Sturridge as the duo combined to score a massive 55 goals in the season. As for Aspas, his solitary goal for the Reds came against Oldham Athletic in a FA Cup tie. He was sent out to Sevilla on loan the following season where he once again failed to find his feet eventually returning to Celta. At Celta though, Aspas has managed to turn his career around once again as he has now scored 67 goals in 126 games, while has also made his debut for the national side and is in the squad to feature in the World Cup.
