The All-Star World Cup teams have always looked very impressive. With the best performing players at the Word Cup all on one list, how could it look anything but? If you take a look at previous World Cup all-star teams, you will see pretty much all the best ever players on at least one of the lists.

The All-Star team comprises of the best performing players at the World Cup and is chosen at the end of the tournament. The players at the 2018 World Cup will undoubtedly want to be a part of the All-Star team and join the rest of the illustrious names that have been a part of it at some point. An actual set of betting markets for who will make it into the team is not available, at least at the moment.

However, if we have a look at some of the other World Cup betting markets, we can get a gist of who is likely to be chosen. Names within betting markets such as the Golden Boot winner, Golden Ball winner and Golden Glove winner can definitely give us a few ideas of who might make the All-Star World Cup 2018 team.

All-Star Team World Cup 2014

But first of all, let’s look at who made the All-Star team in the last World Cup in Brazil four years ago. Germany won the World Cup in 2014 and unsurprisingly, many of their players feature in the following lists. Also, many of the players on the lists will also be playing at this summer’s World Cup.

Officially, there wasn’t a list released by FIFA of the All-Star team, but two teams were chosen using different methods resulting in two teams which were pretty much akin to an official All-Star team.

Firstly, there was a team was selected using statistical methods and was named as the ‘Castrol Index Top 11’. This was the team:

  • Manuel Neuer
  • Thiago Silva
  • Mats Hummels
  • Marcos Rojo
  • Stefan de Vrij
  • Oscar
  • Philipp Lahm
  • Toni Kroos
  • James Rodriguez
  • Thomas Muller
  • Arjen Robben

The other team was selected using an online poll. FIFA.com club members voted and the team which was chosen was similar, but slightly different to the team above.

Here it is in full:

  • Manuel Neuer
  • Marcelo
  • Thiago Silva
  • Mats Hummels
  • David Luiz
  • Angel Di Maria
  • James Rodriguez
  • Toni Kroos
  • Neymar
