TOP FUNTASY PICKS
Luka Modric – The Croatian midfielder has stepped up a gear for his side in this World Cup. Modric needs to be at his absolute best if Croatia are to progress further in the tournament.
Artem Dzyuba – The tall Russian forward bullied the Spanish defence into submission with his physicality and strength. He is Russia’s best route towards goal against a miserly Croatian defence on Saturday in the Quarter-Final.
Ante Rebic – Rebic scored a fantastic goal against Argentina in the Group stage and has been lively on the right wing for the Croatians. Kudryashov will have to be at his absolute best to thwart the Eintracht Frankfurt man.
