The FIFA World Cup 2022 is almost over. Argentina has qualified for the FIFA World Cup 2022 Final. This makes it their second final in 3 World Cups. But this time the team looks like it is playing as a whole unit, and it is playing for that one man, Lionel Messi. The game of football is made interesting by the attackers. These are players who score essential goals and make elegant assists. Here is a look at the top five forwards for the FIFA World Cup 2022:
1) Kylian Mbappe is Playing for France at the FIFA World Cup 2022:
The Qatar World Cup was owned by this Frenchman. The team did have a hiccup in between when they lost to Tunisia but in the rest of the tournament, they were exceptional. Kylian showed us why he is so highly rated and highly-priced. He is making the defenders dance to his tunes. Mbappe takes on the Moroccan defense on Wednesday. He is the joint-leading goal scorer in the tournament.
2) Lionel Messi is Playing for Argentina at the FIFA World Cup 2022:
Lionel Messi is playing his last FIFA World Cup, but he has made it a point to entertain the audience. He doesn’t have many open-play goals, but the ones he has are just too good. The one against Mexico was pure Messi magic, and the same applies to the one against Australia. His assist to Julian Alvarez in the FIFA World Cup 2022 semi-final was just too good to be true. He has also ensured that he scores all the spot-kicks that the Argentines get during the game. He currently has five goals and three assists to his name.
3) Bruno Fernandes:
Bruno Fernandes has had an immense impact on the tournament. Fernandes was one of the players who advocated for Cristiano Ronaldo to be given a fair chance at the FIFA World Cup in 2022. Bruno has 2 goals and 3 assists to his name. Apart from that, he has made 10 passes that have created effective chances. He was one of the top attacking midfielders in the tournament.
4) Antoine Griezmann:
Antoine may not be very highly placed on the scoring record sheet but is one of the top play-makers. It is because of him that Kylian Mbappe and Olivier Giroud are on the score sheet. Antoine has made 3 assists at 16 passes that have created effective chances for France. Antoine is playing as a winger but his runs have been vicious. He has harassed the defenders throughout the tournament. He has run deep with the ball and has made very good “cut-back” kind of passes.
5) Cody Gakpo Played for the Netherlands at the FIFA World Cup 2022:
Cody Gakpo is a lesser-known face. Gakpo has scored three goals for the Dutch. It was the attacking line-up of Gakpo, Klaassen, and Dumfries that worked effectively for the Dutch. Gakpo has left an impact on this World Cup. Apart from 3 goals, he has 1 assist, and he has made 10 passes that have created effective chances. Gakpo plays for his home team, Eindhoven, in the Dutch league. But there is a good chance that he may move to one of the top clubs in one of the top five leagues.
