2. Granit Xhaka ( Switzerland)
The Arsenal midfielder has played all of Switzerland’s WORLD CUP matches and has even scored a stunning goal which could be in contention for being nominated best goal of the tournament.
3. David Ospina ( Colombia )
The goalkeeper has been behind the goal posts of Colombia in all of their matches in WORLD CUP and he has helped them recover from a bad start to a remarkable come back.
4. Danny Welbeck ( England )
