The FIFA World Cup 2018 has been one of the most thrilling World Cups in the recent past. There have been wonderful goals, brilliant saves, solid defending and innovative tactics.
But one thing missing from the tournament has been standout individual performances. With only 3 more games to go, it is not clear on who is the favorite to win the Golden Ball.
Brila.net is taking a look at some of the top and most consistent World Cup players so far.
Luka ModricModric has been phenomenal. At the peak of his career and most of other Croatia players, Modric has been fantastic since the beginning of the tournament. If Croatia does go all the way and win the World Cup, then there is no doubt that Modric will bag the golden ball.
Kante has been the most consistent French player, dropping 100% in all the matches till date. Although it is rare that a defensive midfielder is recognized for his contributions, Kante’s performances have been praised by pundits and fans so far.
If France should win the World Cup, I think Kante should will the Golden Ball.
Kane has also been influential, he has lived up to the expectations, He is leading a new generation of English players to perform beyond the media hype so far in Russia. With 6 Goals already, the Tottenham star has the chance to win both the Golden Ball and the Golden shoe if England wins the World Cup.
