Best Defender Duel in 2018 World Cup Final

Many people say that winning the World Cup is about scoring the more goals compared with the other team. However, how can you score a goal if you cannot past the defender of your opponent? That is one reason why the duel between two defenders on the final of World Cup 2018 is worth to wait.

In France national team, you surely have known the name of Raphael Varane as one of the toughest defenders in France. That has been proven by his consistency in helping his teammates in Real Madrid to finally win the trophy of UEFA Champions League for three consecutive years. As an addition to that, Varane is also believed to be the successor of Sergio Ramos, the captain of Real Madrid who also one of the toughest defender on the team. Considering the fact that Varane is still quite young in age, it seems like this defender will be able to help his national teammates to take the trophy of 2018 World Cup.

On the other hand, Croatia also has one of the toughest defenders in English Premier League. He is Dejan Lovren. This year, he also helped his teammates in Liverpool to reach the final stage of UEFA Champions League, even though he had to admit that Real Madrid is stronger than Liverpool in term of power and attack. However, he clearly stated that he is one of the best players in the world considering the achievements that he had this year, taking both Liverpool and Croatia to the final of two prestigious football tournaments, the World Cup and UEFA Champions League.

Best Defender Duel in 2018 World Cup FinalIf you want to compare these two defenders, in term of experience, of course Varane is a bit under Lovren. That is because Varane is younger than Lovren. However, you have to admit that Varane played in more finals compared with Lovren and that is one clear thing that Varane has the better experience in handling the final match. Another factor that you need to consider is the fact that Varane has the better team chemistry with France compared with Lovren and Croatia team players. However, you need to also realize that there are some people who have the strength to do more things beyond his own power in a short time. You can simply say that maybe it is the time for Dejan Lovren to prove that he is the real defender of the year.

Luka Modric as the Possible Winner of Ballon d’Or

Ballon d’Or was dominated by both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. However, it seems like this world best player trophy is going to be taken home by another player, Luka Modric. Modric is a Croatian captain that helps his team to reach the final match of the 2018 World Cup and it seems she also has the chance to win this greatest soccer event in the world. Even though Croatia had to struggle to extra time so many times on this 2018 World Cup, Croatia defeated a lot of strong teams to reach this final stage. That is one reason why the captain of Croatia is said to be one of the most possible winner of Ballon d’Or. For your information, there are some times in the past when Modric was nominated as the best eleven of football world team. That is also one proof that he has the capability to earn the chance to win Ballon d’Or.

Unfortunately, Modric is not that kind of person who want to win this prestigious trophy that much. It is true that the trophy is a proof that you are the best player in the world in a year, but that is not the main point that this captain wants to achieve. In some press conference, Modric said that winning the Ballon d’Or is not a target that he needs to achieve. That is because winning the 2018 World Cup is more important considering the fact that this is the first time Croatia reaches the grand stage of World Cup. For your information, the last time Croatia national team became the semifinalist of World Cup happened in 1998 on the era of Davor Suker, one of the best Croatian player at that time and this time, on the era of Luka Modric, Croatia is getting better because they have the spot on the final of 2018 World Cup.

Luka Modric as the Possible Winner of Ballon d’Or

You need to understand that winning the Ballon d’Or trophy can be considered as one of the most prestigious thing that a the player can achieve and there are a lot of things that will determine the result. However, most of the Ballon d’Or winner was a striker and if Luka Modric is able to get this prestigious trophy, it means Modric will be another midfielder who wins this prestigious trophy after Kaka that won the same trophy in 2007. We just need to wait how good he plays on the final stage of 2018 World Cup.

France as the Favorite to Win World Cup 2018

France as the Favorite to Win World Cup 2018France was the favorite to win the World Cup 2018 final and this nation still is. That is because they only have one match left on the final against Croatia. Unfortunately, they have to deal with the dark horse on this biggest soccer event in the world, which is not going to be easy. That is because Croatia had defeated some of the biggest teams that were considered as one of the best contenders to win the World Cup 2018, including England on the semifinal stage. Even though, there are some reasons France is still becoming the favorite to win the World Cup 2018 final.

The first one comes from the number of stars that they have on their team. Starting from the defender, they have Umtiti and Varane who have been a great contributors to their team. In the middle, they even have Pogba and Kante that also have a great skills in handling the ball. To the front, they have the amazing strikers such as Mbappe and Giroud, the combination of senior and junior. Even though Croatia also has nice striker such as Mandzukic and the best midfielders such as Modric and Rakitic, it will be a bit hard without the proper defense to stop the attack from France.

The second reason is because of the market value of the players from both of the teams. In term of market value, France has the total of about one billion for all of their stars. On the other hand, with the limited stars on their team, Croatia only has about 370 million on their players market value. This is something that you need to consider if you want to put your bet on this

The third reason is the age different of these two finalist. It is true that age many times represents the seniority in a team, but you need to also understand that age is one important factor in strength and performance. Considering the fact that the average age of the France players is around 26 and Croatia is about 29, you can simply say that France is on the better position. That is because most of the France players are still on their best shape while some of the Croatia players are leaving their prime time as a soccer player. With all of those reasons, it is just something common to say that France has the bigger chance of winning World Cup 2018.

Croatia finally beat England with score of 2-1.

Bad Press Opinion in England before Croatia England SemifinalCroatia secured another spot on the final of 2018 World Cup after beating England with 2-1 score.

Who are the Richest Soccer Players?

What constitutes the richest soccer players? Are skill and technique within the field enough to qualify a soccer player as the richest in the world? On paper, a footballer should be able to qualify as such judged only by his overall career and achievement. In practice, however, this is not enough.

Typically, a footballer that has gained sizeable achievements would be able to make the list of the richest in the world. His career would glow, so much so that sports brands would line up expecting the individual soccer player in the spotlight will want to carry their brands as a representative.

So what are the things that factor into determining the richest soccer players? For starter, a soccer player is paid salaries by his football club. The amount of his payout would be directly influenced by his achievement; the more successful a soccer player is, the higher he will get paid.

And this will also affect how lucrative the endorsement deals that particular soccer player will earn. A footballer with a stellar career would be desired by a lot of sport brands. These deals could be renewed by the involved parties, ensuring the flow of income into that soccer player’s bank account. A footballer may also venture into the world of business by establishing his own clothing line, which is only to mention one of the many ways he can expand his investment portfolios.

Who are the richest soccer players in the world? Let’s review the top 5 below by, arranged in descending order:

Cristiano Ronaldo

1. Cristiano Ronaldo
Ronaldo is the current titleholder of the richest footballer in the world. A combination of pristine skill, goal accuracy, and a hot celebrity sensation, Ronaldo racks up €18.2 million from his contract with Real Madrid; that number, mind you, is for duration of one full year alone. He combines that with his own investment portfolios, most notably would be his CR7 clothing line.
Total wealth: $230 million

2. Lionel Messi

Messi edges Ronaldo in yearly earnings by a slight margin. Per year, he receives a $50 million’s worth of paycheck. Tons of endorsement deals would enlarge his bank account: Dolce &Gabbana, Gatorade, Gillette, Samsung, and Adidas are on his resume already.
Total wealth: $218 million

3. Neymar
Neymar is only 23 years old but he has the likes of Red Bull, Volkswagen, Panasonic, and Nike endorsement deals up his pocket. Add that to the yearly €8.8 million paycheck from Barcelona, and you should get the big picture of just how wealthy this Brazilian is.
Total wealth: $148 million

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

4. Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Ibrahimovic makes his name as one of the footballers in the world whose endorsement deals and investment portfolios make up most of his income, even rivaling his own yearly salaries from Manchester United.

Total wealth: $114 million

What It Takes to Count Soccer Player Net Worth

The soccer player net worth is a term that defines how wealthy a soccer player is as reported. And if you are wondering why this becomes a thing in the first place, you should know that soccer is currently the most happening sport in the world.

The game has long transformed from something purely about being the best field tactician to a stage for celebrity athletes to reap enviable fortune. Knowing this, you might even wish to become a professional soccer player yourself but despite the alluring point, being the richest soccer player does indeed stem from your ability within the confine of the field. Suffice to say, being a millionaire from playing soccer is a bonus to the perfection of skill that you have—one that sure is drool—worthy.

To determine a soccer player net worth is not an easy feat. There are factors that need to be taken into account to come up with the result. First and foremost, being a professional soccer player is a job on its own, which means it pays to be a soccer player. The salary of a soccer player is proportional to his career and achievement.

The more stellar a soccer player’s career is, the higher the salaries would be. This would then lead to endorsement. Sports brands, fashion outlets and lines, and perhaps some health-product manufacturers would come in flock to offer a rising soccer player lucrative deals to represent their brands.

Mind you, as stated in the value of these contracts alone could be bigger than the entire salaries a soccer player may gain per year from the club. And if the endorsement contracts keep on being renewed, it will only add to the individual’s net worth in the end.

A soccer player net worth is also determined by counting the individual soccer player’s investment portfolios. One may think that, being an athlete, a soccer player might never be able to think about business investment. However, one can be an athlete for so long; there is the age factor to consider.

Ronaldo Wealth

Soccer is a dynamic wheel; the old eventually gets replaced by the new, fresher batch. And while some soccer player is so rich he would never die poor, it is only wise to have some sort of financial security by directing attention to building a business empire. Take Ronaldo, for example.

The most famous footballer in the world spreads his wings by forming a sport clothing line of his own, which comes to be known as the CR7. This is only to add to his property portfolios which can easily make money on their own. What about Messi? It’s only fair to talk about Ronaldo alongside its nemesis, Lionel Messi.

With a total wealth of $218, Messi isn’t the richest—that title still belongs to Ronaldo—but occupying the number 2 spot really speaks volume. Messi’s wealth comes from his deals with lots of brands and his $50 million/year contract with his longtime club, Barcelona. And with a series of Ballon d’Or titles behind his name, his wealth will only grow in size.

Running out of Ideas to Style Your Hair? Get Inspired by a Soccer Player Hairstyle

In addition to his skill in the field, a soccer player hairstyle is also a highlight that lately becomes the focus of the masses, especially in the fashion world. Soccer has become sort of a culture these days. This is in contrast to what it was in earlier days when everything is about winning the game only.

In the past, a soccer player was well-known (and a potential star in the making) by a display of his great accuracy and sharp tactics. Looks and appearance were rarely (if not at all) something to take into consideration. Today, however, everything shifts. A soccer player is a celebrity on its own as the game itself reaches a bona fide status.

A soccer field is to a soccer player as the runaways to the models. Each and every soccer celeb out there puts on efforts to style themselves—and quite rightfully; a star in the field, a star in fashion spreads.
