World Cup 2018: 5 players who can outshine Cristiano Ronaldo in Russia
- A look at 5 amazing superstars who can challenge Ronaldo's dominance in the World Cup this year
#4 Denis Cheryshev (Russia)
Before the World Cup began, many people were labeling Russia as one of the underdogs in the tournament. Some even went further to predict that Sbornaya would not get past the group stage.
But, after just 3 matches, everything has changed and the hosts are now considered a team that every nation must be wary of. They are one of the deadliest attacking teams in the tournament, bagging 8 goals in just 3 matches. Special thanks go to one man who scored a whopping 38 percent of those goals - Denis Cheryshev.
Cheryshev has been one of the brightest players in the World Cup so far, impressing in front of goal and defending the pride of his homeland.
The Villarreal attacker has taken his game to a new height, scoring 3 goals from 3 appearances in the tournament. With his impressive performances, the attacker could end up snatching the competition's highlights to himself in Russia.
