Not an Italian.
Hazard, Mbappe, Varane, Modric could have all won it. Lloris if not for his gross mistake in the final. He was perfect before that.
I went with Mbappe given his winning status, age and poise.
I got Pogba (homer vote), Modric, and Hazard
Hazard for me
Pogba was a candidate too, true.
He destroyed Argentina but other than that he was ok. Others are better options. His age status or poise has nothing to do with winning a 2 week tournament
It does actually. It's even more impressive.
He was "OK" against Croatia???
Varane for me. Not sure how he could have played any better.
I went with Varane. Mbappe and Modric were very, very close though.
Modric followed by Hazard and Varane.
I didn't have Mbappé in the top 3.
Expectations shouldn't be a criteria when judging a player for the "best" in a tournament.
Didn't we debate this same exact thing from mid July to August? I can't imagine much changed in people's opinions 6 months after a tourney, debating the same points.
New Poll: Better 2018 WC Golden Ball debate - July 2018 or Jan 2019?
Not digging the lack of Kanté love here, especially considering Griezmann has a vote.
Hazard,Mbappe He was the reason the counter tactic of France was that succesful.
Kante too, but same as Lloris, he missed his final (though he was sick).
Varane was so solid in the back for France so went with him.
Yeah, give the guy a shot.
Giroud while not productive did play a incredibly underrated role in frances offense and I’d say really made it tick. Not the best player in the tournament though.
Coutinho showed up every game too, but Hazard deserves this. Honorable mention goes to to the Colombian central defender Yerry Mina who only played three games but scored in each of them (including the 90+3 equalizer against England) while his team only allowed one goal.
Modric by a mile.
