PremierLeague-News.Com - Rodrigo Bentancur only selected one Tottenham player in his World Cup XI as some notable names were left out, plus decisions on the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Tottenham ace Rodrigo Bentancur was spoilt for choice when it came to selecting his best World Cup XI from the players involved at this year's tournament. Tasked by SPURSPLAY to come up with a team, the catch was that he could only select one player per country. Despite having 11 Tottenham players to choose from, only one made the final cut as the likes of Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, Cristian Romero and Hugo Lloris missed out completely. Starting in goal, Lloris was not selected as Belgium ace Thibaut Courtois, who was his country's hero on Wednesday evening with a penalty save against Canada, picked ahead of the experienced Frenchman. Bentancur's next decision at right-back saw Trent Alexander-Arnold get the nod in the position, thus meaning that Kane was no longer a possibility despite his goalscoring heroics for club and country. Opting for Matthijs de Ligt and Ruben Dias as his centre-backs, Spain left-back Jordi Alba completed the backline. In midfield, Tottenham teammate Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg was the first player selected in the middle of the park.

"He is a great midfielder, both for attacking and defending, so I choose him on the right." With Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante partnering Hojbjerg in the middle, Argentina ace Lionel Messi was given a free role ahead of the pair. Bentancur's international teammate Fede Valverde, who he labelled as "one of the best midfielders in the world," got the nod on the right, with Neymar starting from the left. As Kane and Ronaldo were no longer possibilities with Alexander-Arnold and Dias already in the starting XI, it was Germany forward Kai Havertz who won the race to lead the line ahead of the likes of Robert Lewandowski and Son. It was always going to be a tough choice for Bentancur to make with so many top players to select from, but his decision to leave out Kane proved to be a bit of a talking point amongst Tottenham fans.
