FIFA WC 2014: The Best Debut XI Including Liverpool And Chelsea Stars

FIFA WC 2014 best debut XI


There has been a lot said about Thibaut Courtois since his arrival at Chelsea in 2011. Highly rated, the young goalkeeper looks set to take over as the Chelsea No.1 in a few years, assuming Chelsea can fend off interest from some of Europe’s best clubs. Recent reports from Spain and England suggest that both FC Barcelona and Real Madrid are preparing bids, as well as current loan club Athletico Madrid. With such demand, and praise coming from the continent over, the Belgian seems to be fast-tracking his development somewhat. Thibaut Nicolas Marc Courtois-one of Europe’s finest?

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.
