Between the Brazilian Neymar and the French Mbappé, who dribbles more? Does Englishman Harry Kane finish more than Argentine Lionel Messi? In which sector of the field does the Moroccan Ziyech play?
These stars are among the main hopes of their teams for the 2022 World Cup quarterfinals, which started this Friday (9).
THE Sheet analyzed the performance of the main playmaker or striker of each classified selection to show how he plays and what to expect from him in this decisive moment of the tournament.
Of the main stars, the biggest expected absence in the starting lineups is Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Portuguese lost his place in the starting lineup in the 6-1 defeat of Switzerland. Without the number 7 shirt, the highlight of the team is midfielder Bruno Fernandes, chosen as the man of the field in the 2-0 victory over Uruguay in the first phase.
The Croatian midfielder Luka Modric and Dutch striker Memphis Depay complete the list.
Croatia and Brazil open the quarterfinals this Friday, at 12h. Next, Netherlands and Argentina decide another vacancy from 16h.
The other two clashes worth a place in the semifinal will be played on Saturday (10). England and France face each other in the first hour, while Morocco and Portugal close this phase of the World Cup.
