A 1998 FIFA World Cup winner has named the four stars he thinks will light up the 2018 competition, and also revealed who he would like to see contesting the final.
Click through the gallery above to see the four stars Marcel Desailly picked to shine at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
Former France international Marcel Desailly, who won the tournament in his home country 20 years ago, spoke about the upcoming edition of the showpiece recently, and named a few players he expects to shine in Russia.
"I'd like Neymar to be the one if he can recover well and play consecutive games," Desailly said, as quoted by Omnisport.
"We know all the big names. We have two guys from another planet, with Portugal's (Cristiano) Ronaldo and Argentina's (Lionel) Messi.
"It's tricky to find anyone else emerging. We'd love to see (Antoine) Griezmann play really well."
The Frenchman, who was born in Ghana, also mentioned who his favourites overall were, along with his dream final.
"Besides France, I'll say Brazil. And why not a France vs Brazil final? To mark the 20th anniversary of our victory. That would be kind of great," he added.
"I (also) have strong faith in Argentina, even if they struggled to qualify. Sometimes the countries that have team issues get a wake-up call.
"I really think Argentina can do something. Not because of (Lionel) Messi, but because I think the whole team can prove something."
France has been drawn in Group C at the World Cup, along with Australia, Peru and Demark.
