With a terrifying side on the block, the team has some top talents in its side. From Umtiti to Varane to Pogba, it has the dependable Kante in the middle and Griezmann and 19-year old star Mbappe up front.

After a 7-1 exit in the last world cup at home, the Brazilian team is looking to take the revenge at the 2018 Russia World Cup. From Silva, Miranda and Marcelo and Allison savings the net, it has one of the best defences.
