Come on. It's Cristiano Ronaldo. The superstar striker may be 33 years old but he hasn't lost a step. His unbelievable physical form means he's just as good now, if not better, than in the past. He's still fast, brilliant with the ball at his feet and absolutely clinical inside the box. He, as always, will be counted on big time to be the man in attack.
Player to watch
It's Goncalo Guedes. He's a guy I've watched play over 30 times this season at Valencia, on loan from PSG, and the move paid off. At PSG, with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, chances to play would be limited. So he goes on loan to Spain where he may stay after this season, and he completely tears it up. He's so unbelievably fast, and at 21 years old, he's got the potential to be one of the world's best. He can get down the wing, but what he does best is cut inside and create chances for himself and others. Working with Ronaldo and potentially Andre Silva in attack, he can be another creative force for this team in Russia.
