Was very good, but didn't look quite so solid in the Argentina game.

His spatial awareness and ability to hold the ball and pick a perfectly weighted pass is exceptional, I think he is better than Xavi and Iniesta were.

I thought Mac Allister was excellent, as well as the obvious candidates like Ronaldo ;-)

None of the team did. As a 20 year old, happy to give him some leeway

Mac Allister was brilliant, especially in the final.
