The World in Qatar it started on Sunday, the wait was over and he won the first points Ecuador to the detriment of the host national team. The first day is drawing to a close: from the surprises of Saudi Arabia and Japan to the convincing victories of England and Spain. The first points have been awarded and there is curiosity as to how the standings of all groups will be completed in a couple of rounds.

Who are the best players who will participate in the World Cup? We have decided to group them by Confederations and insert them in special ones Top 11. After the Top XI from CONMEBOL and CONCAF, here is the one from FCA, the Asian Football Confederation.

AFC Top 11, 3-4-3: Ryan; Itakura K., Tomiyasu, Kim Min-Jae; Kubo, Kamada, Mooy, Al Dawsari; Heung-Min Son, Taremi, Doan.

Matthew Ryan

Against France he kept his clean sheet for almost half an hour, then had to surrender to Rabiot, Giroud and MbappĂ©. Matthew Ryan is Australia’s number one in goal and plays for Copenhagen after touring half of Europe in the last ten years. He is playing in his third World Cup as a starter.

Kou Itakura

Manchester City took him to Europe in 2019 and then loaned him to Groningen and Schalke 04, with whom he made his comeback to the Bundesliga last year. In the summer he bought the Borussia Monchengladbach and in the first World Cup he has already given himself an assist with a very long and very precise throw for Asano.


Among the best centre-backs in Serie A, probably the best in terms of continuity and quality of performance. Backbone of the Naples in Italy, it will obviously also be Korea at the World Cup in Qatar.

Takehiro Tomiyasu

He replaced Takefusa Kubo early in the second half and Japan improved. In the crazy arsenal di Arteta has lost space and minutes, in the rest of the World Cup he should return to the field from the first. The former Bologna is born in 1998.

Takefusa Kubo

He prefers to play on the right wing, but can also operate on the left. The attacking midfielder class 2001 the World Cup in Qatar is not a surprise for those who watch La Liga with interest. The former Real Madrid and Mallorca player is now at the Real Society and is a staple of the Japan national team.

Aaron Mooy

His Australia collapsed in the face of French dominance in the opening match at the World Cup in Qatar. In the first half hour he managed the midfield and the restarts wisely. After an experience in China, he moved to Celtic.

Daichi Kamada

Attacking midfielder and main finisher of the Japan national team, as well as the player with the highest market value (transfermarkt). Daichi Kamada has started this season in the best way; already in double figures between the Bundesliga and the Champions League with Eintracht Frankfurtwill face Napoli in February.

FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022"Argentina v Saudi Arabia"

A crazy goal to make his country cheer on a historic day. What happened to Argentina in the opening match borders on tragedy, and he is certainly among the directors of the work. A surprising round shot with a very difficult corner to find which Emiliano Martinez was unable to reach. With the 10 on the shoulders, is the most dangerous in Saudi Arabia.

Son Heung Min

Every confederation has a champion. He is that of the AFC. Heung-min Son arrives at the World Cup after a somewhat slow start (in terms of scoring) with the Tottenham. He will probably wear a mask for a fractured face suffered in the Champions League: will he be able to lead Korea to the round of 16?

Mehdi Taremi

Iran collapsed under the blows of England. Too much quality of Southgate’s national team that overwhelmed Iran with the result of 6-2. Two however the goals of Mehdi Taremi, the strongest player in the Iranian national team who, at 30, is also gaining important space with the Port. He scored the latest goal in World Cup history.

Ritsu Doan

It took him 4 minutes to come off the bench and equalize for Japan. Ritsu Doan, right winger of the Rising Sun national team, landed in Europe at just over eighteen and, after years of apprenticeship, is showing off in the Bundesliga. The Freiburg he signed him in the summer from PSV for 8.5 million euros.
