2018 World Cup Flop XI

With the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia now done and dusted, it will, without a doubt, be remembered for countries such as Spain, Germany and Argentina failing to impress. Here is a starting line-up of 11 players who disappointed the most at the showpiece.

Click through the gallery above to see who made FourFourTwo's 2018 FIFA World Cup Flop XI.

Football publication FourFourTwo announced their World Cup Flop XI on Sunday evening, and it consists of four Germans, two players each from Spain, and Poland, and one each from Argentina, Portugal and champions France.

Manchester United fans have grown accustomed to seeing consistency and brilliance from David de Gea in goals, but this tournament sadly was not one of his best. La Furia Roja's No. 1 let in a howler against Portugal in the group stage of the competition, and then failed to save any penalties in their round of 16 clash against Russia.

Germany defender Jerome Boateng and FC Barcelona star Gerard Pique have been paired up at centre-back, while Bayern Munich's Joshua Kimmich and Portugal international Raphael Guerreiro were placed on the flanks.

FourFourTwo went with a three-man midfield, which consists of two holding players and one attacking threat. Die Mannschaft's Sami Khedira and Argentina's Javier Mascherano were picked to partner each other, with playmaker Piotr Zielinski of Poland ahead of them.

The Flop XI's frontline consists of three high-profile players in Thomas Muller, Robert Lewandowski and Ousmane Dembele, who all failed to find the back of the net at the World Cup in Russia.
