Christian Pulisic

Top 9 Best Players To Watch At World Cup 2022

Those who remember Landon Donovan will find many similarities in Christian Pulisic. He is already a star because of his courageous offensive play for Borussia Dortmund and the USA will be the American’s go-to player. The 23 years old’s footwork has helped him become one of Bundesliga’s greatest young talents.

Kelechi Nwakali

Kelechi Nwakali was sent overseas for experience by an English Premier League club. He is hoping to follow in the footsteps of Alex Iwobi by breaking into the Arsenal team and shining in the World Cup for Nigeria. The 23 years old boasts a tremendous stride from midfield and a powerful right foot among his weapons and he has developed quite a reputation for himself.

Virgil Van Dijk

Virgil Van Dijk

Defensively Virgil Van Dijk excels; his style of play encompasses all of an outfielder’s defensive skills. A complete defense some say put him in a new league. Van Dijk, a defender, was awarded UEFA best player of 2019 and a Premier League player of 2018. This follows a record-breaking 75 million defense trade from Southampton to Liverpool in January 2018. His performance since joining Liverpool has shown he was worth the money. Liverpool won the 2019 Champions League thanks to this guy. Liverpool’s brick wall allowed no opponents to dribble past his defensive boots.

He helped the team win its first FIFA Club World Cup in 2019 against Brazilian champion Flamingo. He has also done an excellent job in qualifying for the Netherlands for Qatar 2022. Returning to Qatar in 2022 gives Van Dijk a second chance to win the FIFA World Cup.

Ritsu Duan

Having created a name for himself in his own country with Gamba Osaka, Ritsu Duan so impressed in a one-season loan move with Gronighen that the Dutch club recently snapped up their option to keep him on a permanent three-year contract. The aggressive two-footed attacking midfield is seen as one of the major hopes for the next generation of Japanese football at the age of 20. The likes of Kizuki Honda, Yuto Nagatomo, Shinji Kagawa, and Shinji Okazaki, are all nearing the conclusion of their international careers.

Kylian Mbappe

Kylian Mbappe

When France defeated Croatia 4-2 at the Luzhniki stadium in Moscow in 2018, a 19-year-old youngster who is now 23 years old, got the honor of scoring the game’s best goals. He became the first youngster to score in the final since Pele in 1958.

Kylian Mbappe moved from Monaco to Paris Saint Germain for 180 million in 2017. He became the second most expensive player and adolescent ever to confirm his status as the next big thing in football. The PSG attacker has amassed some impressive figures way beyond his ears.

Mbappe, who scored two goals in Russia in 2018, is going to join his France team in Qatar, where he is anticipated to assist France to retain their championship. He is renowned for his dribbling skills as well as his eyes for goal and finishing ability. Peers like his ability to read and predict play to create chances and assists.

Mbappe, the best young player in both Brazil 2014 and Russia 2018, has a large social media following with 38.4 million Instagram followers. He is one of the most followed young athletes and the one the world wants to see in Qatar.


In 2021, Lewandowski broke a slew of records with the 90th-minute tap-in on the final day of 2020-21. He broke Gerd Miller’s 49-year-old record of 40 goals in a single Bundesliga season. Let me believe he should have won the Ballon D’or ahead of Messi in September 2021. He cautioned: I am like good wine and I aim to become even better. It would be great to see him in Qatar.

Karim Benzema

Karim Benzema

Now that Benzema is no longer in Ronaldo’s shadow. The Real Madrid forward is finally receiving the credit he deserves after playing a key role in his team’s La Liga victory last season. France manager Didier Deschamps surprised the 34-year-old with his first call-up in years. The prolific striker has finished second in scoring to Lionel Messi in each of the last three seasons but Benzema appears to be on his way to his first La Liga scoring crown after more than a decade in Madrid. It would be fantastic to watch him lead France to a possible triumph this year.

Lionel Messi

He is frequently referred to as the top player in the world if not the greatest. Nobody in football history has had his ball control and dribbling ability, his goal-scoring ability, or his playmaking ability. Having won practically every major football award save the Fifa world cup, Messi is bound to want to improve on his team’s second-place finish in Brazil in 2014.

He has captained his team to the 2014 and 2018 World Cups. In 2014 his goal-scoring prowess helped the squad reach the semis in the 2018 qualifications he scored a hat trick in the final encounter to put his team into the group stage. If Messi makes the 2022 tournament it would likely be his last but what a terrific way to cap a glorious career with the world cup trophy.

 Cristiano Ronaldo


Cristiano Ronaldo the Portuguese captain continues to beat the odds despite being 36 years old. Ronaldo is without a doubt the most famous player on and off the field with 389 million Instagram followers to back

it up however it is his on-field abilities that have made him a most sought player for the 2022 event. Primarily Ronaldo is a prolific goal scorer having scored over 700 goals for the club and country his goal-scoring prowess aided Portugal’s advancement to the 2014 Fifa world cup group stage and the 2018 qualifiers he assisted Portugal

in reaching the round of 16.

Less dribbling and more intellectual play have arrived with age, Ronaldo is well known for his versatility, agility on and off the ball, and ability to create opportunities and space for his teammates. Many people will fly to Qatar this year just to see him play.
