Soccer is the most popular sport in the world. Over time, football has modernised. These days, tactics play an important role in football as well as physicality. Although it is a team sport, some players can win games alone for their team, but on the other hand, some players are considered the worst footballers. Today we have compiled a list of the top 5 worst footballers in the world cup 2022.
5. Niklas Süle (Germany)
Süle started at right-back in a game that he was caught off guard by Japan and struggled with Hajime Moriyasu’s side change at half-time. He played center against Spain and Costa Rica, but his performance wasn’t quite right.
It got so bad that Dutch legend Rafael van der Vaart called him the “German Harry Maguire”. In his home country, it got so bad that his manager Hansi Flick has been heavily criticised for his loyalty to former players who have struggled in Qatar, and Süle is a prime example.
4. Dan James (Wales)
James went crazy at halftime against the USA and Tim Reem was able to gain the confidence to continue playing like Fabio Cannavaro for the rest of the tournament. James then came on as a substitute against Iran and we all know how that game ended. Against England he was cautioned and hooked in the 77th minute. He played 155 minutes in 3 appearances and not even 1 shot on target.
The 25-year-old looked destined for big things after his first few months at Manchester United but is now on loan at Fulham, where he has scored just five goals in 41 appearances. So it’s clear that without Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey, Wales is in the dark ages.
3.Darwin Núñez (Uruguay)
In a world where you always live in the shadow of Luis Suarez/Edinson Cavani and every action you do is contrasted with Erling Haaland, I don’t want to be Darwin Nunez.
The 23-year-old started all three of his games against Uruguay, averaging 242 minutes, but against Qatar he attempted just three shots. After a lavish meal at the Uruguayan table set by Suarez and Cavani, we would be starving to watch La Celeste without these two legends.
2.Nikola Milenković (Serbia)
At 20-years-old Milenkovic looked very good at the 2018 World Cup as Serbia kept a clean sheet against Costa Rica before a close game with Brazil. The Eagles are clearly the dark horse if only Serbia could solidify their defence in the 2022 tournament… Milenkovic’s continued improvement at Fiorentina was the most promising sign.
Serbia scored five goals in Qatar, Milenkovic’s most notable contribution was injuring Neymar in the first game, after which he conceded three goals against Cameroon and Switzerland, and was carded in both games.
1. Jorge Sánchez (Mexico)
For all the players who played for longer minutes for Mexico in Qatar, we just have to give Sanchez the lowest rating. The 24-year-old Ajax full-back should be part of a dangerous right wing with Chucky Lozano on the wing, but Mexico’s performance at the World Cup cannot be described as ‘dangerous’.
