Ranking The Top 40 Players At The 2018 World Cup

37. Bernardo Silva: Portugal

The 23-year-old is a potential candidate for breakout star of the tournament. Though diminutive in size, Silva possesses a wand-like left foot. He’s sublime in exploiting small pockets of space with his silky touch. Silva routinely whizzes the ball around the park — often opening up space for wingers and strikers to operate. With Portugal, Silva will be the fulcrum in its offensive attack. Don’t be shocked to see him careen far up the list by the time the tournament ends.
