With the tournament wrapping up today here's a thread to nominate your player and team of the tournament.
I agree about Maguire but not about Pickford, I think he's been outstanding and he really won me over this tournament.I can't believe the love Maguire gets. He's been ok, but he has a tendancy to turn off at vital moments and I recall him giving the ball away a few times with misplaced, easy passes. I could be being super critical because of all the gushing on the commentary, especially from keone.
I also hope we get a new keeper before the Euro's. I can't put my finger on it but Pickford worries me.
Hope to be proven wrong on both players.
I'd take Mbappe, Modric and Kante ahead of Hazard. So, I guess I would not say Hazard has "easily" been the best player...Hazard has been easily the best player this tournament. Only Modric and Kante get close.
Mbappe has had two good games and Hazard has been the best player on the pitch every single time he’s stepped on it. Aside from the France game - in which Mbappe didn’t impress either.I'd take Mbappe, Modric and Kante ahead of Hazard. So, I guess I would not say Hazard has "easily" been the best player...
I'd also take Lloris over Pickford - but still think Pickford has had a great tournament.
Sure, but Mbappe plays on a much better team - its harder to stand out. I'd say Kante has been the most consistently good player for France, but plays in a position where his contributions often go overlooked. Mbappe has been explosively good - even when sharing the attack with Griezmann and Giroud. And, Modric has been the best player whenever Croatia have played, and he got his team to the finals.Mbappe has had two good games and Hazard has been the best player on the pitch every single time he’s stepped on it.

Yeah, I think Best keeper is down to the final 4 keepers - and I'd give the edge to Lloris.All imo of course. I’d be tempted to go for Schmeichel as best keeper but he won’t be nominated because Denmark didn’t go far enough.
