The South American forward has a lot of potential to become a massive hit under the tactical mastermind Pep Guardiola at Man City.
Many incredible footballers who became well-known names in recent years were on display at the 2018 World Cup. Due to his abilities and skill set being on show during the most recent World Cup in Russia, Kylian Mbappe has become a name the world simply cannot forget. Aleksandr Golovin made a name for himself after his stunning freekick and two assists against Saudi Arabia.
Hirving Lozano lit up the World Cup with a brilliant performance for Mexico against Germany in their season opener, scoring the game-winning goal. Coming to transfers, the world has witnessed some incredible transfers that the performances have influenced in the mega event. From Carlos Tevez’s move to West Ham in 2006 to Sami Khedira bagging a Real Madrid deal for his 2010 World Cup performance, the World Cup delivers more than one expects.
The World Cup not only provides us with goals, controversies, upsets, joy, disappointment and nerves but is also the biggest showroom of skill and talent in football, with many footballers engineering a move to their dream clubs on the back of strong performances in the grandest of stages.
Aurelien Tchouameni is a well-known name among the Los Blancos these days and isn’t a hidden gem anymore. He’s had 13 appearances for Real Madrid and 14 caps for France and operates at the heart of the midfield. He’s very versatile and can provide a lot of quality tracking back and moving up the field. With N’Golo Kante ruled out of the World Cup with a hamstring injury, Tchouameni could be crucial to France’s title defense.
Jude Bellingham established himself in England before piloting a move to Borussia Dortmund. He has taken the Bundesliga by storm with over 100 appearances for the German side. Bellingham thrives under pressure, and with a link-up with Declan Rice in the middle, Jude Bellingham could create a lot of impact for the English side as they look to win their second FIFA World Cup title.
Julien Alvarez is arguably the next big thing in Argentine football. The South American forward has a lot of potential to become a massive hit under the tactical mastermind Pep Guardiola at Man City, but in the bigger picture, with his technical abilities and clinical finishing, he could be the trump card Lionel Scaloni will look to use whenever necessary. Argentina will be looking to use everything in it’s arsenal to go all the way in what could be Messi’s final World Cup.
