      Oh god. I tried a couple of times but it's difficult.

      I think I'd start with Courtois in goal. And then, Trippier or Pavard at right back? I can't seem to think of any particularly great left back in this tournament. Then in attack, I'd like to be able to include someone like Cheryshev, but at the expense of who? Haha. This is too difficult, I'll give it a try later though.

      The nailed on players in my eyes are Courtois, Varane, Kante, Modric, Hazard and Mbappe.

      Yeah, the left back was difficult, so I threw in a 2nd right back :D I think Lucas Hernandez has been consistent, maybe Strinic too? Just not stand outs for me though :(

      Leaning towards Varane. He’s looked class.

      M'Bappe & Varane from France and Modric & Rakitic have been some of the best players throughout the tournament.

      I would have said about Mbappe, but the way he's starting with all the theatrics like Neymar pisses me off.

      Surprised no one has mention Griezmann. I think he , Kante and Varane have been the most important players in the French team.

      If Croatia wins the WC, Modric will win the player of the tournament, but If France wins it, I think the winner will be dependent on who has the better match between Griezmann or Mbappe.

      I’ve not been too impressed by Griezemann. He’s been quite greedy, there’s been a number of times he could have played Mbappe, as well as Matuidi through on goal but instead he’s taken a shot from distance and made a mess of it. Seems like he wants all the glory, almost seems as if he doesn’t like being outshone by Mbappe IMO. Completely different to how he was at the Euro’s.

      Henderson has had a decent tournament but putting him on player of the tournament list just shows huge bias.

      His country got to the semi finals and he was one of the best players in that team.

      I'm not asking for anyone to agree with me just my opinion.

      Nah, for me our teams best was Tripper or Maguire or Pickford.
      He did a job okay, but if you see against Croatia there were a lot of long balls.
      Southgate ended up pulling him off and I think that was a mistake.
      But his longballs went noticed and some people are saying he contributed to our lack of creativity.

      Well it would surprise you

      But he's been away for a month or so, so maybe he just closed his eyes and pretended

      Up until that game he was constantly criticised for playing too safe.

      You think all of a sudden he just decided to play long? He was playing to what the coach wanted.

      Back to players of the tournament.

      Golovin and Chereshev for Russia.

      Yeah those Russian players were good.
      I get what you are saying. I liked the Henderson performances before Croatia.
      Southgate should not have let criticism affect how Hendo played.
      If he should have listened to any criticism it should have been about Sterling and dropped him for the Sweden game.

      for what he did the other night I'd have Perisic in there, he drove that revival and in WC tournaments you only need  a couple of big games to be player of the tournament or in Messi's case in 2014 you don't need any.
