2022-12-19T14:00:02.843Z


A mixture of stars and revelations, discover our typical team for the 2022 World Cup, which includes three French and three Moroccans.


They are more than eleven players to have been talked about at the 2022 World Cup. But when it comes to composing a typical team for the tournament, it is necessary to decide.

The Figaro

sports editorial staff

gave pride of place to the semi-finalists in a 5-3-2 system.

There are stars like Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappé, but also less expected players like Sofyan Amrabat.

An eleven 5 stars.

The goalkeeper

The goalkeeper of Morocco, Yassine Bounou, will have been intractable.

Like that of Croatia, Dominik Livakovic, decisive during the penalty shootouts against Japan and Brazil.

But it is also the case of

Emiliano Martinez

, who was there until the final where he entered the head of the French, after his incredible parade against Randal Kolo Muani at the end of extra time (120th + 3).

The Argentinian was voted best goalkeeper in the World Cup, and we share this opinion.

He is one of the architects of the coronation of Albiceleste.

It is still appropriate to congratulate Hugo Lloris: the captain of the Blues (35 years old) has honored his status as the most capped Frenchman in history.

But he was unable to repel the Argentinian shots on goal despite shots of dubious quality.

The defenders

Few customers emerge at the left side position.

Our choice is

Théo Hernandez

, author of an all in all correct tournament, and scorer in the semi-final against Morocco (2-0).

On the right,

Achraf Hakimi

is the lucky one.

Without being brilliant, the Moroccan side of PSG held its rank.

In the axis, we slip in three defenders.

Romain Saïss

was a proud captain of Morocco: scorer against Belgium in the group stage (2-0), his leadership pushed the Atlas Lions to write history.

Josko Gvardiol

proved impassable with Croatia, until crossing paths with Lionel Messi in the semi-finals.

As for

Nicolas Otamendi

, he will rarely have lived his age (34 years old), authoritarian to validate the Argentinian coronation.

Midfielders

Impossible to miss the

Sofyan Amrabat

tournament .

The Moroccan vacuum cleaner (8.1 balls recovered per match) filled many gaps between the lines.

His teammate from Angers, Azzedine Ounahi, made us think.

But these are two stars who support Amrabat in our typical team.

First,

Luka Modric

, who tormented Brazil in the quarter-finals at 37.

The 2018 Ballon d'Or isn't dull, it proved it.

Third midfielder:

Antoine Griezmann

.

If his final had lived up to the rest, he could have been voted the World Cup's best player.

In the oven and in the mill against Denmark and Morocco, the number 7 of the Blues delivered two assists against England (2-0).

Let's say it without fear: the 2022 World Cup cemented Griezmann among the best French footballers in history.

attackers

Is there any need to explain?

Lightning at the start of the tournament,

Kylian Mbappé

was more discreet in the quarter and semi-finals.

And suffered for a long time against Argentina.

Before tipping, all on his own, a World Cup final.

Beyond his hat-trick, the Frenchman scored two penalties and a shot on goal against a specialist goalkeeper, with a mountain of pressure on his shoulders.

He is the top scorer of the 2022 World Cup (8 goals).

At the same time,

Lionel Messi

was also there for "his" final.

He scored twice, was behind the third goal and helped destabilize the opposing organization.

As in almost all Albiceleste matches, in fact.

Messi made Messi with the only trophy he lacked in his career.

The most beautiful of all.

Our typical 2022 World Cup team:

E. Martinez – T. Hernandez, Gvardiol, Otamendi, Saïss, Hakimi – Griezmann, Amrabat, Modric – Mbappé, Messi
