Chelsea have quite a few players who will be playing in the World Cup this year 2018 in Russia. Some of those Chelsea players may be just fringe players or bench players while others will be the main star for their team I.E Eden Hazard for Belgium. Willian is also another one of the Chelsea players who will star at World Cup in 2018.

Victor Moses may not be the main man at Chelsea, but he will likely be for Nigeria. The Nigerian will be one of the Chelsea players who will star at World Cup in Russia. Moses will likely be playing as a traditional winger for Nigeria instead of wing-back. He will provide Nigeria an attacking outlet with his dribbling skills and could link up well with his fellow Nigeria attackers. Former Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel is captain of Nigeria while two youth players- Ola Aina and Kenneth Omeruo will likely be in the squad.

Victor Moses has scored five goals and made one assist in ten appearances for Nigeria in the World Cup qualifiers.

4. Willian-Brazil

Although Willian is not a guaranteed starter for Brazil, there’s no doubt that he could influence a game when he comes on as a sub. There is no doubt that Willian will be one of the Chelsea players who will star at World Cup in Russia. The Brazilian is not often a starter for Chelsea either but he still has the most assists in the team this season for The Blues (7).

Will Willian start for Brazil in the World Cup?

With players like Philippe Coutinho and Neymar in the team, it will be hard for Willian to start much. but he will definitely play a role as an impact sub and could indeed star for Brazil when he plays.

Willian has scored four goals for Brazil en-route to the World Cup. The Brazilian is also one of the fastest players at Chelsea.

3. Olivier Giroud-France

Again, much like Willian, Giroud is another Chelsea player who is not a guaranteed starter for his national team. But he will definitely play a role as an impact sub- just like how he’s done many times with Arsenal and Chelsea. Expect Giroud to come on late in games to score a headed goal or a scorpion kick or whatever he comes up with next.

With players like Kylian Mbappe, Ousmane Dembele and Antoine Griezmann in the team, France will need a tall, big target man type of striker in case the little guys can’t do it.

Giroud has made eight appearances for France in the Qualifiers and scored four goals. That’s an impressive feat considering he’s not normally a starter.

2. N’Golo Kante- France

Here is one Chelsea player that will definitely start for his national team. N’Golo Kante is perhaps the best defensive midfielder on the planet right now. So there’s no way he’s not getting into that star studded France team. The Frenchman will be one of the Chelsea players who will star at World Cup in Russia 2018.

What role will N’Golo Kante play for France in the 2018 World Cup?

N’Golo Kante will likely partner midfield with Paul Pogba and Blaise Matuidi. But N’Golo Kante will be the star of the show defensively. He will sit in front of the defence and help regain possession for his team so silky attacking players like Pogba and Mbappe can thrive.

N’Golo Kante was number one on our Top five Chelsea players with the most tackles this season list. So expect him to make a lot of tackles for France as well.

1. Eden Hazard will be the Chelsea star at the World Cup 2018

Eden Hazard not only be a sure starter for Belgium, he will also likely be captain (depending on Vincent Kompany’s fitness). Hazard will also be Belgium’s main attacking threat. The Belgian will link up with the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku for Belgium. Hazard is our number one most valued Chelsea player currently.

Eden Hazard skills and goals for Belgium

The Belgian will provide the creative dribbling outlet for them while De Bruyne plays killer passes and Romelu Lukaku will be tasked with finishing the chances they create.
