Players destined to shine in Russia 2018

MOSCOW, Russia.- The 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia is without a doubt the biggest stage for any soccer player to show the world what he’s made of. Every team is reaching for the same goal, but within those teams you’ll always find the difference-makers who stand out above the rest. These are a few of them:

James Rodriguez

James had a few rocky seasons with Real Madrid after lighting up the 2014 World Cup, but that is all in the past. Following his move to Bayern Munich the Colombian looks sharper than ever, which can only be good news for the Colombia squad, who is looking to repeat the success of their previous World Cup campaign.

Harry Kane

To say that the English forward has had a breakout season would be an understatement. Harry Kane has scored 24 goals in 30 appearances this season, and he’s showing no signs of slowing down. Kane’s recent performances have even earned him comparisons with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.  

Thomas Muller

Muller is only 6 goals away from reaching German legend Miroslav Klose as the FIFA World Cup all-time greatest goal scorer, at only 28 years of age. The current record is 16 goals, and if Muller carries his current form to the Russia, he might not need to wait until the 2022 World Cup to break it.

Kylian Mbappé

At just 19 years of age Kylian is already a point of reference and one of soccer’s greatest talents, not just at his club PSG, but in world soccer. Mbappé made headlines after breaking the UEFA Champions League record for the youngest player to reach 10 goals in the competition, beating out no other than Lionel Messi.


The Spain squad has been revitalized with the recent integration of young players, but none more talented than Isco. After having an amazing season with his club, Isco cemented his name as a Spanish legend after scoring a hattrick vs. Argentina recently, becoming the first Spain player in history to score three past a World Cup-winning nation.

Luis Suárez

The Uruguayan is hungry for redemption after a disastrous 2014 World Cup, being sent off and banned during his game vs. Italy. Suarez is already his country’s greatest ever goalscorer, with 49 goles in 94 matches, a rate of a goal every other game.
