We’re just over a month away from the start of the 2018 World Cup and the world is eagerly waiting. As the domestic season comes to a close, the best players in the world are now setting their eyes on Russia. Last week we looked at Arsenal, today we’re looking at the World Cup prospects of Barcelona. The La Liga champions will have a number of representatives across every group in the tournament.
Here are 5 Barcelona players to watch out for at the World Cup.
Barcelona’s record signing will have high hopes of being the Catalan outfit’s marquee representative from Brazil. Last season, all eyes would have been on Neymar but for now, Coutinho has taken that mantle.
The 25-year-old will be Brazil’s creative maestro and the likes of Neymar, Douglas Costa and Gabriel Jesus won’t be able to score without Coutinho in the middle. Brazil is one of the favourites to win the tournament and Philippe Coutinho is one of the main reasons why.
