The Top Players from Every Team

Who ranks the highest for each team?

With the World Cup in Russia set to kick off soon, we decided to take a look at the top players in every single team taking part and rank the players in terms of of their Influencer Score. This is interesting because it shows off not just the usual suspects of Ronaldo, Neymar and Messi, but players such as Victor Lindelof from Sweden, who you wouldn’t naturally associate with being so high up (especially if Zlatan was still around). But it perhaps goes to show the power of the Premier League and Manchester United that he comfortably outranks his Swedish counterparts.
