soccer They say the

soccer They say the whole is greater than the sum of its parts and when it comes to the World Cup, we know the importance of a strong team. For anyone who loves soccer, the World Cup is a must-watch. The beauty of this tournament however, is that even people who do not love soccer watch it to represent and support their country. The World Cup is invigorating, exciting, and a representation of you as a citizen of your country. This year, the tournament will be in Russia. The first game will be on June 14, 2018, and the highly anticipated final will be on July 15, 2018. There are so many footballers, current and retired, that have been considered the greatest footballer of all time. Each team has their one star player that represents the whole. In this article, you will find four players from Europe and four players from South/Central America who are currently the star players for their team, representing their country, loved by their fans. Fan or not, you have heard of Messi, Ronaldo, and Neymar. But there are other players that are just as impressive that you have not heard of unless you are a soccerlover. As you will see, France has a player named Kylian Mbappé. Although most people would think of Griezmann as France’s star, Mbappé has unique qualities that cannot go unnoticed. In fact, he reminds us of Edson Arantes do Nascimento, better known as Pelé. Pelé was widely regarded as the greatest football player of all time. He was the youngest player of the 1958 FIFA World Cup tournament, and at the time the youngest ever to play in the World Cup – he was only 18! Against France in the semifinal, Brazil was leading 2–1 at halftime, and then Pelé scored a hat-trick, becoming the youngest in World Cup history to do so. So why does Mbappé remind us of Pelé? Well, Mbappé is only 19 and will be showing off his amazing set of skills during his first World Cup tournament coming up in Russia. Just as young and possibly just as good, there are many closely watching Mbappé! Catch up on some of the countries’ star players and enjoy the tournament! May the best team win! 58
