The FIFA World Cup Russia 2018 has reached its final stage and the month-long Russian carnival will end on the 15th July with the fight for the prestigious trophy and 14th night will decide who will end at the third place. The statistics say that no Premier League player has ever won an individual award at the World Cup Finals stage. Here are our picks for the individual trophy winners and let’s see whether the history will change or not…
The Golden Ball (For The Best Player of the Tournament)
Our Pick- Luka Modric
Modric has guided the Golden generation of Croatia to their first ever FIFA World Cup Final. Croatia was not even considered as a strong force in the starting of the World Cup but the Real Madrid star has shown that his magic show can put anyone in awe. His team has won all their matches by going into extra time and have been balanced and disciplined side with the Little Magician in their midfield.
The Golden Boot (For The Top Goal Scorer)
Our Pick- Harry Kane
Harry Kane is leading the goal scorers category with 6 goals in the bag and one more game yet to play with Belgium’s Lukaku who’s 2 goals behind him. The two Premier League stars are set to play the third place decider match. Griezmann and Mbappe are far behind the English man with 3 goals each, though they are set to play against Croatia and have said that they will not make the same mistake like they did in 2106 UEFA European Cup.
The Golden Glove Award (for The Best Goalkeeper)
Our Pick-Hugo Lloris
France conceded 3 goals in their knockout match against Argentina but they have shown their real value by keeping a clean sheet against Uruguay and Belgium. Though Croatia’s goalkeeper Subasic is also a favorite to win the Golden glove as he has played a pivotal role in bringing Croatia to their first final in their history. Courtois has the highest amount of saves with 22 among-st the goalkeepers who reached the last 4 stage of the tournament.
The Best Young Player
Our Pick- Kylian Mbappe
NO ONE can imagine what he does. I want to leave this by saying that we all are in a process of seeing the making of a GOAT player. Super Fast
