Simply The Best!

Story by Aaron Bliss

Simon Poulsen

Denmark

The marauding left-back has often been the source of the Dane’s most exhilarating cavalry charges with his crossing ability and pace in abundance.

Like Poulsen, Gebre Selassie is a huge attacking threat down the opposite flank, while his defensive awareness has also come to the fore.

Mario Mandzukic

Croatia

 

Despite scoring a meagre 5 goals in 29 games before the tournament began, Mandzukic has almost doubled that total in just 2 tournament games, impressing particularly with his superb touch and finish under pressure against Italy.

Petr Jiracek

Czech Republic

 

The all-action midfielder has provided two crucial goals to help the Czechs progress, and what has been most impressive about both is the timing of his runs, and his exemplary first touch and composed finishes.
