Subasic, Trippier, Godin, Granqvist, Hernandez, Kante, Pogba, Modric, Coutinho, Hazard, Mbappe.

Kane will be included even though he's been mostly poor and just stat padded against pub level opposition. I'm sure FIFA will try to squeeze Ronaldo in as well even though he didn't do much besides Spain.

Things I've learned this World Cup:

Penalties don't count as goals
Shots from 10 yards out or less don't count as goals
Goals against Panama and Tunisia don't count as goals
If you play well but don't score you've been poor

^ Have to be deluded if you believe Kane sniffs near the Team of the Tournament.

Courtois
Vrsaljko Varane Godin Trippier
Pogba Modric
Mbappe De Bruyne Hazard
Kane

Couldn't pick a LB so just put Trippier in there. Don't feel like Kane has been *great* but I haven't been massively impressed with many strikers apart from Cavani and he didn't play enough so top scorer Kane can get the spot.

(4-3-3) Sorry no england players, but I think we have been overhyped. Struggled to beat Tunisia and Columbia, beat a League 2 team in Panama and while we played well vs Sweden, the only 2 good teams we have played in Belgium and Croatia we were found exposed.
Courtois
Vrsaljko Godin Miranda Laxalt
Kante
Modric De Bruyne
Hazard Perisic
Mbappe

Colombia*

And England beat four teams then.

How many other teams have won more than four games in this World Cup?

Not many, so in that aspect we have done well. But the quality of teams we played weren't great. Bar the first half vs Tunisia and the sweden game did we even play well?

It doesn't matter who it was against. You play what is in front of you and in most of the games England played well.

It is really strange how people always have to be negative with the national team. Semi finalists and probably the Golden Boot winner and people are still negative. It's ridiculous.

Cheryshev

Mbappe
Lionel Musa, the true GOAT (seriously though Dzyuba)
