England is going to face France in the World Cup quarterfinals and fans are very excited as it is expected to be a very exciting game. Both teams have quality players with exceptional talent. From young talents to experienced legends both squads are filled with big names.
As the quantity of quality is not a debate here, let us look at 7 players out of all to watch in that match.
#7 Kyle Walker
An extremely talented English defender who has been great wherever he plays, for club or country he always provides the best out of himself every time. For many fans, he is one of the best RBs in current football. Fans are very excited to see a clash between him at Mbappe.
#6 Jude Bellingham
He has been one of the most important English players in such a short period of time. A very talented young midfielder who troubles defenders of the opponent’s team.
#5 Antoine Griezmann
He changed his game just for his team. Griezmann a left-footed forward who is quick, contemporary, and versatile. He has been termed as a “team player” and is capable of playing a variety of offensive positions in front of or behind the primary attacking line.
#4 Phil Foden
Guardiola described him as “a special player”, saying: “It’s dangerous to say good things about young players because they are still young, and they have to grow and they have to learn many, many things”.
#3 Harry Kane
Kane has been very important to the team over the years, and there is no denying the fact that without him England will face a lot of trouble and imbalance in the attack.
#2 Oliver Giroud
The most underrated player in football ever. What he has done for his country never got that much appreciation and was always left behind in the shadow. His 2018 World Cup performance or 2022 World Cup performance, he proved every time how important as a player he has been all these years for France.
#1 Kylian Mbappe
The star of France, the focus of every camera, and one of the best young player of current football, Mbappe. He though face criticism for the Real Madrid controversy but I guess he cleared all his stains after playing this well for his nation. Even for Southgate, he is the man who needs to be stopped if they want to win the game.
