Premier League

Best performing defenders in the World Cup tournament

1. Virgil van Dijk

Virgil Van Dijk is a player currently playing in top club in the premier league, Liverpool. He is from Netherland and he forms one of the best center back player.

2. Lisandro Martinez

Argentina who have now qualified to the finals produce one of the best center backs. When a team is touted a favourite, its defence is expected to play a major role and Lisandro Martinez - who has started his Manchester United career strongly this season- will be one to watch out for during the tournament.

3. Joao Cancelo

He is the Manchester city player who is internationally playing from Portugal which was knocked out at the quarter finals. He is one of the most selected defender.

4. Kieran Trippier

He is the one of the most important player on the side of Newcastle and has tried to bring his team to the top of the table. He is playing from England.

5. Antonio Rudiger

The Real madrid center back. Germany's overall strength at the back and Rudiger's consistency at international level could give anyone who selects him plenty of points during the course of the tournament.
