Best World Cup Quarter-Final XI

Neymar and Luis Suarez are two stars to recently crash out of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, and while we said goodbye to players, many others impressed in the quarter-finals. Here is a starting XI of players who did well in the previous round of the tournament!

Click through the gallery above to see our best XI from the quarter-finals at the 2018 World Cup.

The quarters were action-packed as we saw goalkeeping errors, VAR controversies and spectacular tactics. The biggest shock of the round was Brazil’s exit, as they were the big favourites to go on and win the competition.

Squawka and Sporting Index have come up with a Best XI for the last eight, and the team sees Belgium’s Thibaut Courtois selected in goals. The Chelsea No. 1 made nine saves in the game against Brazil, which was more than any of shot-stopper in this round.

Three England players and one Uruguayan dominated out of all the backline players, according to the two publications. Defenders Ashley Young, Harry Maguire – who got on the scoresheet - and Kieran Trippier all played their part in the 2-0 win over Sweden, while Atletico Madrid centre-back Jose Gimenez made up the back four. 

In the centre of the park, France's Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kante partnered with Jesse Lingard from England. Pogba was the standout midfielder of the round, as he won more duels and completed more successful passes into the final third than any other player.

Arsenal Interested In Argentina WC Star?

The front three all come from Belgium, and it is no surprise, as they put two past the Selecao this past Friday. The combination between Kevin De Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku and Eden Hazard terrorised their opposition and collectively were unstoppable.
