Best players to watch in Russia

  • Print


Paul Pogba, 25, and Antoine Griezmann, 27, France  :
There might not be another team that's as entertaining to watch as Les Bleus this summer. And that's all because of the joy (some might view it as tomfoolery) exhibited on the field by Paul Pogba and Antoine Griezmann, along with Kylian Mbappe, who is one of my under-the-radar players to watch in Russia.
Don't let what most pundits describe as immaturity --  or Pogba's hair color and dabbing -- distract you when you're watching these two play because they are flat-out ballers. Much like we discussed with KDB above, Pogba's game is all about his vision and helping out others on the field with his passes and dribbling displays. Griezmann, on the other hand, is line to be team's top scorer.
Both players help lead France to a second-place finish in the Euro 2016, with Griezmann scoring a tournament-best six goals and two assists, which was enough to earn Player of the Tournament and Golden Boot honors. Pogba left his mark with one goal in Brazil 2014 and in Euro 2016. If France, which is considered one of the top value picks to win it all by our SportsLine experts, wins a second title, it'll be because of the work these two youngsters as they try to make the World's Game fun again.
