Qatar 2022 has delivered goals, giant-killings, and the blockbuster final many hoped for, with Lionel Messi’s Argentina taking on Kylian Mbappe’s France on Sunday.

But as the curtain prepares to fall and the World Cup nears its conclusion, who makes Sky Sports’ team of the tournament?

 

From the standout performers to breakout stars, we have selected 11 players from Qatar in a 4-3-3 formation and, for good measure, included a 26-man squad given the sheer volume of quality that has been on display.

Two clean sheets in the group stage and inspired between the sticks as Croatia overcame Japan and Brazil on penalties to reach the semi-finals. The scramble for Dominik Livakovic’s signature post-World Cup tells you just how well the 27-year-old performed.

The poster boy of Morocco’s campaign, Achraf Hakimi lived up to his star billing in Qatar. From his robust defensive performances and his audacious ‘Panenka’ penalty, to the heartfelt embraces with his mother throughout the tournament, the Paris Saint-Germain right-back embodied Morocco’s fairytale run to the semi-finals.
