That is what the greatest competition in the world does to people – it makes people dream. The joy of seeing your country lift the trophy is unparalleled and can’t be explained in words.
Like every other year, every player would look to help his team to lift the biggest trophy of them all. And here are 10 players to look out for at the World Cup 2018.
#10 Toni Kroos
The German is the midfield engine of Real Madrid and Germany. His presence at the centre gives balance to the team and provides them with someone who sets the tempo from the middle.
The German has made 76.7 passes-per-game in the league with an accuracy of 93.1%. He has also made 2.4 key-passes-per-game but the best part is his 6.2 long-balls-per-game.
His ability to launch the ball and find his team-mates 50-60 yard away from him makes him a great proponent of counter-attacking football.
