#10 2018: Corentin Tolisso
Bayern Munich midfielder, Corentin Tolisso, part of the French national team squad at the World Cup will be playing the match of his life in the next couple of days against either England or Croatia in the World Cup final.
With France's progression to the final and with Tolisso part of the squad it is the 10th time in the row that a Bayern Munich player will be part of a World Cup final.
A smart, strong, creative midfielder who can also be played as an enforcer, Tolisso has all the qualities to play anywhere on the field.
Didier Deschamps might opt to use the player to counter the abilities of either Henderson, Lingard and Alli or Modric and Rakitic. Tolisso can also be a goal threat making him a more suitable option than Matuidi in midfield for the final.
