Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United was pretty consistent this Season, only outdone by local rivals Manchester City and eventually finished at second place, their best Premier League finish since the Departure of Sir Alex Ferguson. The Red Devils performance this Season saw 12 Players get a place on the plane to Russia.
England: Marcus Rashford, Phil Jones, Ashley Young and Jesse Lingard
Jones and Rashford has played full 90 mins. Meanwhile, Lingard came on at the 79th minute and Young stayed on the bench.
Marcud Rashford has scored an incredible strike today! BOOM!
England 🏴 2-0 🇨🇷 Costa Rica.

United Youth Academy products Lingard and Rashford have been impressive for Man United and Gareth Southgate would be looking to get the best out of the two attackers. Ashley Young has been a revelation under Jose Mourinho and Phil Jones….. Well, he was probably included because of a lack of Center-Backs in England.
Argentina: Marcos Rojo

Rojo was out with a Knee injury at the start of the Season and missed 11 games, but was fit for the next 27 and made only five starts. Rojo will be looking to turn things around with Argentina and prove to Jose that he’s worthy of a starting spot.
France: Paul Pogba
This World Cup is Paul Pogba’s time to shine and disprove his critics.

United’s Record Signing will be hoping to put his ‘Alleged’ differences with Jose Mourinho behind and concentrate on the World Cup. France has a very talented squad and if Pogba can come out all guns blazing the Les Blues could be the ones lifting that Trophy in Moscow.
Belgium: Romelu Lukaku and Marouane Fellaini

Romelu Lukaku and Mourane Fellaini were included in Roberto Martinez’s final 23-man Squad. Lukaku is Belgium’s best striker without a doubt and to question at Totally Man Utd Fellaini in and Naingollan out? ‘Not surprising really’ I think I’ve said enough.

The Brazilian Midfielder hasn’t played a minute of Football for his new club but making the World Cup squad and completing a 52 Million pound transfer in the same month. Not bad, not bad at all.
Spain: David De Gea
👊🏻 David De Gea kept a Premier League high 18 clean sheets last season.
🇪🇸 Fancy him to star for Spain in the World Cup as well? pic.twitter.com/nUnhoiqumH

The Best Goalkeeper in the World right now, don’t gloat Man United fans, it’s because Neuer is injured. De Gea kept 18 clean sheets in the Premier League and will without a doubt be Spain’s number one in Russia.
Sweden: Victor Lindeloff

The World Cup Couldn’t have come at a better time for the Swede, clean slate, no pressure. Looking forward to this.
Serbia: Nemanja Matic

The Big man, in my opinion, was Manchester United’s best signing this Season. Can he take Serbia to the Knockouts? We’ll have to wait and watch.
