FIFA World Cup has exceeded our expectations for excitement and entertainment. There are a lot of players to keep an eye on as the best teams get ready to face off in the most exciting part of the tournament.
Some of the world’s best footballers are based in the Premier League. With their performances for their countries, several of these players have managed to make the 2022 FIFA World Cup a spectacular event.
Let’s take a look at five of the best Premier League players who will be competing in the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Marcus Rashford has only started one of England’s four games so far at the 2022 FIFA World Cup. He has played all of the other games on the bench, but he has still had a big impact on the Three Lions.
In England’s opening match of the group stage against Iran, Rashford scored a lovely goal. His brilliant brace was crucial to England’s 3-0 victory over Wales in their group stage finale.
The Britain administrator has decided to rearrange his aggressors and Rashford is sure to get more possibilities in the competition assuming they go further. He is one of England’s most potent forwards due to his directness, ability to dribble, and shooting.
At the 2022 FIFA World Cup, Harry Kane has not been at his best in scoring goals. In fact, some fans and pundits requested that he be dropped from the starting lineup due to his poor record in front of the goal in the group stage.
However, Kane demonstrated that he has a lot to offer his team even without goals. Kane gave three aids in England’s three gathering stage experiences. When the Three Lions defeated Senegal 3-0 in the Round of 16, he was one of their best players on the field.
With a strong finish against Senegal, Kane also scored, and he appears to be finding his rhythm at a crucial stage of the tournament.
Richarlison’s selection as Brazil’s primary center forward for the 2022 FIFA World Cup was not well received by many fans. However, the Tottenham Hotspur attacker’s performances for the Selecao in Qatar have put his doubters to rest.
In Brazil’s World Cup opener against Serbia, he scored twice. Richarlison was rested for Brazil’s third game in the group stage against Cameroon after a lackluster performance in their 1-0 victory over Switzerland. In the Round of 16 matchups with South Korea, he made a comeback to the starting lineup.
The 25-year-old scored yet another spectacular goal in an impressive performance against the Asian opponents. Before joining his teammates and executing an expert finish, he displayed some of that “samba” flair.
At the 2022 FIFA World Cup, Bruno Fernandes only made two appearances for Portugal. Fernandes was rested for the third group game after leading his team to the knockout stage with two outstanding performances.
He will be the primary player for Fernando Santos’ team once more when they face Switzerland in the Round of 16 tournaments. During Portugal’s opening match against Ghana in the 2022 FIFA World Cup, Fernandes provided a couple of outstanding assists.
The Manchester United midfielder then scored twice to lead his team to a 2-0 victory over Uruguay. Fernandes is a football player with exceptional vision and intelligence. Every time he gets the ball, his quick thinking and quick decisions make him a problem for the opposition.
Bukayo Saka’s approach to wreaking havoc in the attacking third has been so composed and calm that one could mistake him for a veteran from afar. However, the 21-year-old Arsenal forward is one of the country’s best attackers and has a baby face.
Saka is an essential member of this England team because of his ability to effortlessly weave past defenders and score. England’s Saka became the second youngest player to ever score in a World Cup knockout game when he scored against Senegal in the Round of 16.
Saka has scored three goals in three World Cup appearances thus far in 2022.
