Default World Cup best 11

I guess things could change after the final, but who would people pick in a World Cup 11? My team with very little thinking is

Lloris
Vrsaljko
Left back
Varane
Umtiti
Kante
Modric
Perisic
Pogba
Mbappe
Mandzukic

I tried to fit in an England and Belgium player, but I felt the players who played best for these teams had strong competition elsewhere. Iím struggling with left back, but neither of these teams excelled here.

Iím not picking Kane or Lukaku for racking up goals against Tunisia and panama and not turning up for the knockout. While Mandzukic only has 2 goals, Iím not sure if anyone in the knockout has scored more and they were both big goals.

Can you look past Ronaldo as your central striker?

Trippier has got to be in there. Been the outstanding attacking right wing back and I donít think heís done much wrong defensively either.

I think he has been the best England player, however I think he has been unlucky that the Croatia and France right backs have been very good.

Meunier another good right back. If Pickford hadn’t saved his volley today that could have been goal of the tournament.

FIFA have selected

Lloris, Trippier, Young, Varane, Lovren, Paulinho, Modric, Griezmann, Mbappe, Neymar.

A few terrible choices there. Neymar selected for commercial/political reasons, Paulinho a rand choice. I also can imagine the following conversation taking place.

FIFA Bod 1 - Right we have been told we need 2 players from each semi finalist. We are one short for England.
FIFA Bod 2 - What positions do we have to fill.
FIFA Bod 1 - Only left back left now.
FIFA Bod 2 - Well who plays on the left for England?
FIFA Bod 1 - Ashley Young
FIFA Bod 2 - Did he have a good World Cup?
FIFA Bod 1 - Not really, he got destroyed in the semis.
FIFA Bod 2 - Screw it, just put his name down.
