Mendy was great at passing the ball against England. He secured a score of 49 out of 50 for accurate passes, and went six for seven with regard to accurate long balls. The Sengal squad was just not able to keep up with the quality of the English squad. Mendy should have earned the oppruniuity to get more minutes in the Leicester City squad.

Worst: Youri Tielemans

The Belgium squad had high expectations heading into the World Cup. Youri Tielemans was one of the reasons as to why they had those expectations. He was not able to deliver. He only played the first half against Canada before he was subbed out of the game. He was 68 per cent on his accurate passes and a worrfying 25% on his accurate long balls.

Tielemans was subbed on in the last thirty minutes of Belgium’s 2-0 defeat to Morroco. He played well in duels and was able to move the ball well yet, it was not good enough of an effort to help the squad win. The LCFC player than only played the last 13 minutes against Croatia where he was not able to help his team score the needed goal. Like the Belgium squad, Tielemans was underwhelming this World Cup.

Did not play: James Maddison and Wout Faes

The two best players Leicester City sent to the World Cup haven’t played. Wout Faes shockingly was not a starting centre back in the Belgium squad. Castagne started at centre back over him which is confusing. James Maddison has unfortunately not played due to the spectacular play of Phil Foden and Gareth Southgate’s personal agenda for Mason Mount.
