Top Goal Scorer
We begin our set of picks for the clash with the selection of Andriy Pyatov from Ukraine owing to his pluck and grit.
Not only does this showdown have a French cleansheet written all over it but the affair is one where France’s fullbacks can go on a rampage as well. Benjamin Pavard and Lucas Hernandez will be accorded a free hand to canter up the park, one which sees the duo and Raphael Varane represent the club.
Although Antoine Griezmann has struggled for France, he’s managed to impress for the French to see him and N’Golo Kante comprise the duo from the side.
Ukraine’s set of picks begin with the selection of Oleksandr Zinchenko meanwhile. The City player has been sensational for his club this term and with an escalated role up the park today, he offers sublime value.
Serhiy Sydorchuk and Ruslan Malinovskyi also feature for us owing to their ability to close the ball and do the dirty work at the back.
PSG’s Kylian Mbappe has been outstanding as ever, netting goals at will to see him and the ever reliable Olivier Giroud close out our team for the day.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Mbappe’s affinity for goals make him our captain while Giroud is the vice-captain.
Pyatov, Pavard, Lucas, Varane, Kante, Antoine, Oleksandr, Ruslan, Serhiy, Kylian, Olivier
