With World Cup knocking on the door, it could be the perfect platform for Manchester United players to showcase their skillset. As many as 11 players are scheduled to take part in the biggest show on Earth, the FIFA World Cup 2018 and manager Jose Mourinho could use this opportunity to check out his players including new signing Fred.
United signed Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk as they kick-started their summer business. The Red Devils are yet to unveil the Brazilian midfielder who has been named in Brazil’s 23-man squad for the World Cup. The former Internacional player has eight caps for Brazil and is expected to add some more to his tally.
A number of other players are scheduled to take the field for their respective countries and now let’s have a look at the possible Manchester United World Cup lineup.
David De Gea has been a one-man army for the Red Devils and if Spain are to achieve something special he is the man to watch out for. The Spain number one is undoubtedly the best in business and he has shown it numerous times.
With England manager Gareth Southgate opting for a three-man defence Phil Jones can definitely fancy his chances.
Victor Lindelof had a nervy start in his debut season in the Premier League but will be seen marshalling his backline for Sweden.
Ashley Young has been a revelation on the left side of the defence and his performance for the Red Devils earned him a World Cup berth at the age of 33.
We can expect Marcos Rojo to start few games for Argentina.
A revamped midfield is in the offing for United supporters. Mourinho preferred a three-man midfield lately and Fred has been brought in to fulfil that purpose. Mourinho is determined to free Pogba from his defensive duties and Fred could be the perfect game changer.
The Brazilian midfielder would provide the dynamism and flair in the middle of the park and that can surely help Pogba to concentrate on his creativity.
The French midfielder is a vital cog for the French team in the World Cup and would be hoping to justify his talent.
Nemanja Matic has been pretty consistent and is a definite starter for Serbia in the World Cup.
The three-pronged attack will be spearheaded By Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian international had a fantastic first season for United and would be expected to replicate his form.
Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard are going to be two important players for England and Southgate will definitely use them more profusely.
