Top 6 Players to Look Up To this June in Russia
Ousmane Dembele (France)
This 20-year-old Barca’s rising star has brought up lots of joy for Barca fans and now he is eyeing on FIFA Worldcup trophy in Russia. He is capable of delivering results in pressured games, and surely this Frenchman can easily add up to players from his National side; Antoine Greizmann and Mbappe for a potential forward line. Also, we are predicting these 3 could turn up to be a World Cup winning trio for France National Football team.
Timo Werner (Germany)
Timo might only be 21 years of age, but he has already shown his class by guiding German team to Confederations Cup triumph in June last year. He seems very lethal for a player in this age, and now he is all set to make an even dangerous come back in Russia for the FIFA World Cup 2018. There is a reason why Joachim Löw always backs Timo Werner for his phenomenal finishing skills and that is going to get very clear this June in Russia.
Remember! he helped Germany claim the FIFA Confederations Cup Last Year where his return of three goals earned him the Golden Boot at the Confederations Cup Tournament.
(Perhaps another Golden Boot award for Timo is awaited in Russia this Year)
Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal)
Without a doubt, Cristiano Ronaldo has been one of the most dominant athletes in the world of football and has won almost all the possible tournaments for h club. Just 2 years back he has bagged Euro 2016 Trophy for Portugal and this time around he will be aiming is even higher benchmark for others to follow.

Mohammad Salah (Egypt)
MOHAMED SALAH could still feature for Egypt in second group game after recovering from the serious shoulder injury he sustained in the UCL final when he tangled with Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos.
(If he plays) Lionel Messi’s Egyptian counterpart Mo Salah is going to be a very crucial player for Egypt in FIFA Worldcup. He has shown and proved his class in the Premier League, Champions League, and now he is aiming for the World Cup. Although his team Egypt is going into the tournament as the underdogs, everyone is expecting something extraordinary from Mohammed Salah.
