Time flies! The players who we once saw make their World Cup debut as youngsters may just be playing their last world cup next month. Though in this journey, they surely have made an impact on the entire football world. A competition for which more than 200 countries from all over the world to clinch one of those 32 spots, FIFA World Cup is undoubtedly the biggest celebration of the game in the world.
Let us take a look at 5 players who might be on the verge of ending their world cup career after this world cup:
With two UEFA Euro, one FIFA WC, and a bunch of UEFA Champions League titles in his cabinet, Sergio Ramos is currently one of the most decorated players in world football. He played a lethal role in Spain’s dominance over world football between 2008 and 2012. Aged 32, Ramos would want to give it all to re-establish the Spanish supremacy over the world football.
Khedira bossed the German midfield when they clinched the coveted title four years back in Brazil. With his excellent touch play, he will be crucial for Germany’s success in this year’s tournament. Aged 31, and Germany being no short of young talent in the midfield, this could well be Khedira’s last world cup in the German shirt.
Luca Modric came in the limelight with his heroics at the 2008 UEFA Euro. An industrious player, known for his unpredictable creativity and passing, Modric would be the key to Croatia’s success at the big stage. Aged 32, he would like to end it with his nation at least making it till the semis this summer.
Another man from Spain, Gerard Pique is as decorated as Sergio Ramos. He is known for his presence of mind on the pitch. Along with Ramos, Gerard would be eyeing his second world cup trophy as he enters the prestigious tournament aged 31, and uncertainty clouding his quest to appear at the 2022 world cup.
He is the man to watch out for at the world cup. Having won everything but world cup in his footballing career, Ronaldo is often criticized for not being par at the biggest stage for the nation. Aged 33, and having led Portugal to 2016 UEFA Euro triumph, the man would enter the tournament high on confidence and would try to win the only trophy missing in his cabinet.
