The 2022 World Cup has some of the finest defenders in football who are doing well for their respective nations in the biggest competition in football. Most of these players have helped their countries keep clean sheets or concede less in the competition.
Top defenders like Raphael Varane, Virgil van Dijk, Ruben Dias, Thiago Silva, Raphael Varane, William Saliba, Antonio Rudiger, Aymeric Laporte, and Lisandro Martinez, among others have performed well for their countries in the World Cup.
They have been amazing at the back and forwards and have struggled to beat them or score against them. Among these defenders, Manchester United defender Lisandro Martinez has been exceptional for Argentina and has helped them keep one clean sheet after two games.
The 25-year-old didn't start in the first games for his country in their loss to Saud Arabia but was amazing after he started. He has been difficult to beat for every striker or winger he comes along and might help Argentina get to the final.
He played a big part against Mexico on Saturday to help his country maintain their hopes of qualifying for the round of 16. Martinez has been an exceptional defender in Europe and he will thrive for Argentina in the World Cup if he continues starting.
