World Cup 2018: FIFA Team Of The Tournament Revealed! [Full List]

The 2018 World Cup ended on Sunday with a very exciting final as France defeated Croatia 4-2 at the Luzhniki Stadium in Russia.

The FIFA 2018 Team Of The Tournament Is Here Below:-

Striker - Romelu Lukaku (Belgium)

Romelu Lukaku scored four goals in the tournament and proved to be a good performance from the Manchester United star.

Left-wing - Eden Hazard - (Belgium)

Belgium’s Eden  Hazard scored three goals and provided two assits which earned him a spot in the Team of the Tournament.

Hazard's speed and excellent dribbles proved very valuable when Belgium tried to break down defences.

Right-wing Kylian Mbappe - (France)

The Paris Saint-Germain star was no doubt the most talked about player of the tournament.

The 19-year-old score four goals including one in the final against Croatia.

Mbappe was also awarded the Young Player Of The Tournament award.

Centre-midfield: - Kevin De Bruyne (Belgium)

Manchester City star, Kevin De Bruyne helped Belgium to their best ever finish in World Cup history.

De Bruyne was at the heart of the Belgium midfield and his ball playing abilities and long-range passes were world-class all throughout the tournament.

Centre-midfield – N’Golo Kante – (France)

Chelsea star, N’Golo Kante is often the unrecognized hero of his team and doesn’t always get the credit he deserves. This World Cup was no exception for it.

The midfielder was dominant in every game leading up to the final, but an underwhelming 50-minute spell saw his World Cup final cut short.

Centre-midfield - Luka Modric (Croatia)

The Golden Ball winner Luka Modric showed why he is one of the most adorable midfielders in the World in Russia.

Modric effectively controlled the tempo of the game and played some intricate passes into his strikers.

He has been performing at this level for years, and after this tournament, he can be in contention for the world’s best player award.

Left-back – Lucas Hernandez (France)

Lucas Hernandez was originally set to be a squad player for France, however, his impressive qualification campaign earned him a starting spot in Didier Deschamps’ side.

The 22-year-old’s versatility came through in this tournament, as he provided support for both the defence and the attack.

Centre-back – Harry Maguire (England)

Harry Maguire, who is the current Leicester City’s player of the year, continued his great run of form from the league into this year’s World Cup.

He was outstanding in all of England’s victories and is a key reason for their defensive success.

Centre-back – Raphaël Varane (France)

Real Madrid defender, Raphaël Varane is now a World Cup winner. He played a pivotal role in France’s triumph.

The centre-back also earned himself a goal in their 2-0 victory over Uruguay in the quarter-final.

Right-back – Kieran Tripper (England)

Tottenham full-back, Kieran Trippier was another standout performer in England’s success in Russia.

Trippier adopted the right wing-back role very well and his crosses into the box from set pieces were successful on multiple occasions.

He also scored a crucial free kick for England in their semi-final tie against Croatia.

Goalkeeper – Jordan Pickford (England)

Jordan Pickford was a hero on multiple occasions this tournament.

His most notable contribution was his penalty saves in England’s historic win over Colombia in the Round of sixteen.
