Russian hero headlines our Team of the Tournament

Football, eh? Some games leave you breathless, others leave you… well. You can form your own opinion. 

Following on from the incredible scenes that took place on Saturday it was always going to be a hard act to follow.

However, after Spain 1-1 Russia and Croatia 1-1 Denmark, here’s our updated team of the tournament so far…


GK – Igor Akinfeev – Russia: Made nine saves against Spain and then saved two penalties in the shootout. A Russian hero.



RB – Benjamin Pavard – France: Scored one of the goals of the summer against Argentina. Truly beautiful (and his goal wasn’t bad either).


CB – Diego Godín – Uruguay: Was partly at fault for Portugal’s goal on Saturday night but redeemed himself with pretty much everything else he did during the 90 minutes.
