There is no questioning that Lionel Messi is the main man for Argentina, however, you can’t rule out Man City’s all-time leading goalscorer who has been prolific for his club side this season. Argentina often get a lot of criticism, especially having scraped through qualification, but they always appear to pull it out the bag when needed and with the likes of Nigeria and Iceland in their group, Aguero will fancy his chances of bagging and progressing to the latter stages of the tournament.
At $34, the 29-year-old currently has 36 international goals to his name in 84 appearances and this definitely looks a tasty price to us.
The French wonder kid scored two against Russia in a 3-1 win, giving Didier Deschamps a headache as to who to he should start in Russia. He definitely has a lot of options, as Deschamps prefers Giroud up top and with Griezmann as another option, Mbappe may have to shine from a wide position.
However, he’s been used to that all season long with PSG since the arrival of Neymar and has still managed to score week in week out. He’s one of the best strikers on the planet at the moment and representing a side who are third favourites for the tournament at $7.5, we expect Mbappe to have a solid tournament.
Mo Salah has been the signing of the summer. In fact, he’s probably been one of the best signings in years for both Liverpool and the Premier League. He scored the penalty to take Egypt to the World Cup for the first time in 18 years and he is without doubt their best hope if they are to achieve any kind of success in Russia. With Saudi Arabia and Russia in their group, there is no reason why Salah and his side can’t progress, as well as scoring a few goals in the process. $41 for arguably player of the season looks a great each way bet.
The Brazilian has probably been left in the shadow of Salah this season but has scored 14 goals in the Premier League and could prove to be a key figure in Russia, as Brazil are expected to challenge for the World Cup. Current 5/1 favourites, Firmino may not be the first name on the team sheet but he knows where the back of the net is and will more than likely have his chance to shine. $51 seems a rather large price for one of Europe’s top goal scorers this season and with the likeliness of Brazil going all the way, he will have plenty of chances to grab a few goals.
