The most awaited football competition is back. Yes, I’m talking about the FIFA World Cup’18 which is just 6 days away from now.
After a scintillating performance from clubs all around Europe. People’s expectation from this year’s World Cup are quite high. Also, why would it not be? After all, 32 nations will be up against each other and each one of them would like to get their hands on the most important trophy in the footballing world.
As we are edging closer to the World Cup. We are starting our series of articles about players from big clubs that will shine at the World Cup in Russia.
The first team on our list is Manchester United. There 11 players from Red Devils who will be representing their nation in Russia. Out of which we have picked our top-five players that are going to prove vital for their national team.
Here are the five Manchester United players who are set to shine at the World Cup:
5) Marcos Rojo
Marcos Rojo will be playing his second World Cup with the Argentina national side. After falling short against Germany in the final of 2014 World Cup. The Argentine’s focus will be on winning the Golden trophy this time.
This season was quite disappointing for Rojo as he suffered long-term ligament injury in the Europa League last season. The injury was quite serious because of which the Argentine missed around 10 starting Premier League games this season. Also, even after returning from injury, he was not fully fit. This was the prime reason why Jose Mourinho didn’t start him in many games.
Argentina is being considered as a weak defensive side. Also, this might turn out to be a reason for their exit from World Cup. But you can’t really predict anything and if Rojo steps up for his nation at the World Cup. Then there are chances that Argentina will be a tough contender, and this will also settle Rojo’s place in starting line-up of United next season.
