Most Important players in Group D on FIFA World Cup 2018

There will be very tricky fixture which will shape this group into an interesting one.

Other two well-organized teams may hold a surprise that could change the outcome of the game. Yes, talking about Nigeria and Iceland.

#1 Lionel Messi – Argentina

Lionel Messi – Argentina

By scoring a hat-trick against Ecuador, Lionel Messi helped Argentina to qualify for the Cup in Russia after a great performance single-handedly played. One of the best players in the world, Lionel Messi, will be the heart of every move that Argentina will put together.

We believe after losing three finals with Argentina, Messi will have his eyes on the price, winning so he can add the major international trophy. Let’s see what the Cup has in store for Argentina and Messi this year.

#2 Ivan Perisic – Croatia

Ivan Perišić Croatia

Getting on the side of 30, the Croatian talents like Luka Modric, Mario Mandzukic, and Vedran Corluka, this may be the last chance of playing at a World Cup altogether.  Croatians, well known as the Dark horses had times at the previous Cups under good performance.

Perisic with his range of passing will be indispensable to Zlatko Dalic’s men. He is believed to be the creator of chances and to be the key if they are going to live up to their title of Dark Horses.

But this year, on the left side of the midfield Croatia has Ivan Perisic, the expectations are big.

#3 Kelechi Iheanacho – Nigeria

Kelechi Iheanacho – Nigeria

Through qualification, Nigeria was unbeaten so here we have a magical work of the national team.

The youthful attacking power coming from the player Iheanacho will be enjoyable, along with the play of Iwobi and the experience of the skipper John Obi Mikel.

His season at Leicester hasn’t had the best of the debut but with the quest by the creative performances and skills of Ndidi, Iwobi, and Moses he will do the best that he can to make the most valuable player for team Nigeria.

He is keen to find his own track on the pitch in Russia, so he can show his true worth.

#4 Gylfi Sigurdsson – Iceland

Gylfi Sigurðsson – Iceland

Iceland will be making history on the Cup by becoming the smallest country to ever participate in a World Cup.

Sigurdsson’s ability to be the leading goal scorer and to play so comfortably with his dead ball skills will make him the biggest threat to the team playing against Iceland for the goal scoring habit. Gylfi Sigurdsson is the most high profile player that Iceland has.
