Many nations aspire to be like the Modric-led Croatia of last year. The current African champions Senegal have great athletes including Mane, Sarr, Gueye, Koulibaly, and Mendy.

With Eriksen back in the lineup, European semi-finalists and league leaders Denmark keep up their impressive play. Mexico and the United States can battle back, but Serbia and their offense (Vlahovic, Tadic, Mitrovic) are usually difficult to defeat.


With talents like Lewandowski, Son, and Bale, other teams like Poland, South Korea, and Wales may succeed.

There won't be a lack of celebrities in Qatar. For the World Cup championship, players like Mbappe, Benzema, Griezmann, Neymar, Vinicius, Casemiro, Messi, Lautaro, Dybala, Lewandowski, Mane, Modric, Cristiano, Bruno Fernandes, Joao Felix, Kane, Foden, Hazard, De Bruyne, Lukaku, Darwin, Luis Suarez, Van Dijk, De Jong, Vlahovic, Bale,


Alexis Sanchez, Haaland (Norway), Salah (Egypt), Mahrez (Algeria), Alaba (Austria), Ibrahimovic (Sweden), Luis Diaz (Colombia), Oblak (Slovenia), and Donnarumma (and their excellent players, Verratti, Chiesa) won't be there (Chile).
