FIFA WC 2014 best debut XI
While this grand tournament will be the last major one for legends like Gianlugi Buffon and Iker Casillas, Thiabut Courtois, the Belgian who enjoyed a stunning season for Atletico Madrid as the Rojiblancos won the La Liga and came within touching distance of claiming the Champions League will start under the sticks for his country. Belgium are everyone’s dark horses going into the tournament while England’s Joe Hart will also be making his debut for the Three Lions as the Manchester City goalkeeper will be trying hard to banish Rob Green’s nightmare in South Africa four years ago.
Marcos Rojo will start for Argentina for sure after having a good season for his club. There are a lot of new faces who are expected to shine this time in Sambaland but we have decided to pick Leighton Baines as our left back as the Evertonian will play a huge role in Roy Hodgson’s squad ahead of Marcelo. Vincent Kompany and Gary Cahill form a formidable partnership at the heart of the defense after both the defenders had a great season for their respective clubs in the foregone Premier League season. Pablo Zabaleta also stakes his claim as the right wing back slot in our squad as the Manchester City defender will be driving force for Alejandro Sabella’s defense in Brazil. Mauricio Isla of Chile just misses out.
