#5: Christian Eriksen
The Spurs creative midfield player has been on fine form this season and if Denmark gets any free kicks remotely close to the goal, there is a great chance he will find the back of the net. He is the team's best player by a large distance and it will be up to him to carry the team as far as they can go.
#6: Lionel Messi
The world's best player already has 61 goals to his name for his country and yet he is considered as a flop when playing for his home nation. The magician will be determined to set the record books straight and become a god by lifting the world cup trophy in Russia.
Brazil is the favorites alongside Germany to win the World Cup with bookmakers. Neymar has been under the shadow of Ronaldo along with Messi and is determined to overtake both to become the number one player in the world. If he is going to achieve that he will need to outperform both and win the trophy for his team. If anyone can do it, Neymar is the man.
