GOALKEEPER

Dominik Livakovic (Croatia)

No one is more deserving than Dominik Livakovic, who assumed this position. A goalkeeper born in 1995 experienced a dream-like journey at the World Cup. Livakovic made 11 saves, 7 of them to block a shot in the penalty area during the Brazilian attack, followed by a penalty shootout that sent the South American representative home.

 

DEFENDER

Josip Juranovic (Croatia)

Josip Juranovic is also another Croatian name that deserves to be in this squad. The defender in 1995 successfully completed the defensive task with a 100% dispute win rate with 4 clearances and 4 successful tackles in 120 minutes against Brazil. In addition, Juranovic also left a mark on the offensive front with 3 passes to create opportunities.

Dejan Lovren (Croatia)

Despite 33 years old, Lovren is still a solid shield in front of the Croatia goal. The former Liverpool star played the full 120 minutes in the match against Brazil and made 10 clearances which is best statistic for a midfielder to have in the quarter-finals. Furthermore, he touched the ball 104 times and had 94% pass accuracy, which contributed to Croatia's playing style.

Jawad El Yamiq (Morocco)

Jawad El Yamiq is the player that caused the powerless of Portugal’s attack. The 30-year-old central defender is as solid as a rock in Morocco's defense. Like Lovren, Yamiq made 10 clearances, but only in 90 minutes of the 1-0 win over Portugal.

 

Yahya Attiat-Allah (Morocco)

Attiat-Allah is a comprehensive defense on the left wing of Morocco. Allah's tight defense paralyzed the right wing of Portugal. This player has 4 saves and 3 assists. He was the creator of the only goal that helped Morocco defeat its European opponent, thereby making African football history at the World Cup.

MIDFIELDER

Marcelo Brozovic (Croatia)

Marcelo Brozovic is still the most energetic and enthusiastic player in the Croatian team. Brozovic moved tirelessly across the pitch in 114 minutes against Brazil. He has 134 touches, a pass accuracy rate of 88%, and 10 wins in disputes, a record no midfielder can touch in the quarterfinals.

Bukayo Saka (England)

Although the England team was eliminated, Bukayo Saka had an excellent match. The young Arsenal player eclipsed Mbappe on the other side of the line. Saka has won 8 duels (most on the pitch), 4 recoveries, 4 touches in the opponent’s box, 4 fouls (most on the pitch), and created 3 chances. The young star born in 2001 also made the left wing of the French team confused and earned a penalty for the "Three Lions" to equalize at 1-1 in the quarter-finals. In the 79th minute, England needed a mutation, so Coach Southgate made the controversial decision to remove Saka from the field. 

Bruno Fernandes (Portugal)

Bruno is a rare bright player in the Portuguese squad in the quarterfinals. The midfielder in 1994 touched the ball 89 times, made 3 passes to create chances, and had a shot that hit the bar. However, one of his misses resulted in "Seleccao's" only goal. If only Manchester United's captain had a goal when his shot hit the crossbar.

Antoine Griezmann (France)

Griezmann is the best player for France in the quarterfinals. The star of the Atletico Madrid staff created Tchouameni and Giroud to score a semi-final ticket for "Les Bleus." 

STRIKER

Lionel Messi (Argentina)

Messi had a great game against the Netherlands. The PSG player caused a lot of difficulties for the well-organized defense of the "Orange Whirlwind." He had 1 goal and 1 assist that helped him gain the 3rd Player of the Match award at the 2022 World Cup.

Wout Weghorst (Netherlands)

Reserve striker Wout Weghorst was the hero of the Dutch team in the match against Argentina. Weghorst played only 43 minutes but shone with two goals against Argentina. However, the effort of the Besiktas striker was not enough to bring "Oranje" past the opponent from South America. The European representative once again fell in the penalty shootout.
