Best goalkeeper either Sommer who was superb in both games - we'll see how he'll be against France.
And that Iceland GK whose name I don't know :lol:

Best defender - probably Boateng - that goal line clearance vs. Ukraine + that defending vs. Poland (especially that tackle vs. Lewy) = WOW.

Best midfielder - Iniesta followed closely by Payet and Kroos. I'd say Payet but I think that's more media buzz than actual performances. He has been good, no doubt that - but not better than Iniesta who was great in both games. Kroos is a close 3rd. He was in the nearly as good as Iniesta / Payet but doesn't have anything to show for it (translation - no goals / assists)

Best attacker - probably Morata (2 goals) followed by Sturridge, who did show what makes him good in those 45 minutes he played but that's too low on minutes to judge him properly.

Barzagli is 35. I know Italian players aging great is a common thing but his play is simply amazing. He signed a new contract too. Gonna be 37 at the end of it.

Wolfsburg had a really good squad at that time (killed among others Bayern 5:1, Magath humilated Bayern even more by switching the goalkeeper to give the number 2 some minutes :rofll: ) plus he came from some Italian pubber club IIRC so good pay raise for him.

In the 2nd game yeah, first he was too quiet. That dude Robert Mak you have, man if he could just learn how to shoot!! Runs all day for fun and gets in good positions but blazes over every single time.

He was non-existent in the first match, barely played the second and only was good in his third match. How does that make him best player so far?

Xhaka has been solid for me. Too early to really tell.

Worst players prob have been Sterling and Cech oh and Clarke for Ireland.
