Some players have really stepped up their game at the World Cup. While some have been pure class throughout both club and country. However, it's still yet unclear why some starr while representing their countries than clubs.
A clear example is Manchester United's captain Harry Maguire. The 27-year-old has spent the entire of the new Premier League campaign warming the bench. But for the Three Lions he has been a stumbling block at the back for the minutes he has featured.
We are yet to see a player bag a hattrick. Braces have been plentiful. With Croatia's Matej Kramaric the latest addition to this list. His brace yesterday ensured Croatia boost their qualifying hopes.
Enner Valencia became the first player to net a brace at the competition and was on course for a hattrick before his goal being ruled out for offside after VAR intervention.
Players to score a brace at the 2022 World Cup:
◉ Bukayo Saka
◉ Mehdi Taremi
◉ Olivier Giroud
◉ Ferran Torres
◉ Kylian Mbappé
◉ Andrej Kramarić 🆕
Musiala is a pure gem. Watch out this talent!
20-year-old Pedro, 19-year-old Musiala, 18-year-old Pedri. Gonna be watching them do their thing for a long time.
Germany fought till the last minute to earn a hard earned point against Spain.
One of the best World Cup goals you'll ever see.
