The best World Cup 2022 fantasy football midfielders –

Who are the must-have midfielders in World Cup 2022 fantasy football?
The 2022 World Cup is just around the corner with fans looking to finalise their FIFA World Cup Fantasy teams.
Players need five midfielders to complete their 15-member squad and must work with a total budget of €100 million.
With that in mind, GOAL takes a look at the top midfielders to pick from, including a few bargain buy alternatives.
Qatar is expected to be the Croatian legend's final World Cup, as the Real Madrid midfielder turned 37 in September, which could provide the midfielder with added motivation. Croatia and Belgium are favourites to make it out of a group that also contains Morocco and Canada.
The only risk factor of picking Foden would be the competition the Man City midfielder faces for his place in the England starting XI. However, given his club form this season wherein the 22-year-old scored seven goals and bagged 14 assists, it may well be worth the risk.
With the likes of Cameroon, Switzerland and Serbia in Brazil's group at the World Cup, Guimaraes will fancy his chances of registering some numbers in terms of goals and assists. The midfielder has been in eye-catching form for Newcastle this season and will hope to continue to impress in Qatar.
Having scored twice in the 4-0 friendly win over Nigeria ahead of the showpiece world event, Portugal will be banking on Fernandes to come good at the World Cup after a stellar patch of form at Manchester United in the past few weeks. The chances of him being picked in the XI is also another plus point.
De Bruyne is considered the best in his trade and will be aiming to continue his good form with Belgium at the World Cup. He has so far amassed nine assists at Manchester City this season and will take some stopping in Qatar.
Don't be fooled by Eriksen's deeper role at Manchester United under Erik ten Hag. The Dane still managed to score a goal and made four assists in 13 games. With 39 goals and 26 assists in national team colours, he is also Denmark's assigned penalty-taker. He also plays in a much more advanced position for his country.
At just €8 million, you've got yourself an excellent bargain when it comes to the sensational Bayern Munich talent. Musiala is already accustomed to playing alongside most of his German compatriots at club level where he has nine goals and six assists in just 13 Bundesliga games. Hansi Flick will definitely be looking at unleashing the youngster's full potential at the World Cup.
Do not miss the fact that Bergwijn is listed as a midfielder for World Cup 2022 fantasy football. The 25-year-old is accustomed to being deployed in the Netherlands' front line and has scored 10 goals in 20 games for Ajax this season. Another fact you cannot miss is that, priced at €7m, the former Spurs man also comes in at a good deal for your team.
Bellingham may just have taken his mostly substitute role at Euro 2020 personally, as he has since done everything to suggest that Gareth Southgate cannot afford to bench him again. The 19-year-old has matured for his age given his big performances for Dortmund, especially his four goals in five Champions League games this season.
If you're tight on budget and still looking for a good gamble in the middle, go on and sign this 18-year-old Costa Rican winger. Bennette has the opportunity to put up telling performances against the likes of Spain and Germany in Group E. For those who have followed the Sunderland man, you know what you're getting. He has two international goals wearing Costa Rican colours.
Although yet to score or assist in the Premier League with Brentford, the attacking midfielder has one assist each in the League Cup and the UEFA Nations League. However, he has made a vital contribution of two goals and four assists during Denmark's qualifying campaign. The 22-year-old will be looking to add to his goal tally against France, Australia and Tunisia in the group stage.
You haven't picked Perisic because he plays at wing-back at Tottenham Hotspur? Fear not. He will be Croatia's left winger and the 33-year-old also has a good record at the World Cup finals – five goals and three assists in 10 games, specifically.
Sane absolutely took off at Bayern Munich this season. The German has already scored 10 goals and registered six assists in 19 club appearances in all competitions. He is also likely to start in the World Cup group games against Japan, Spain and Costa Rica.
It may be difficult for Paqueta to land a starting berth given the plethora of attacking options at Tite's disposal. However, a Brazil XI has rarely been spotted without the West Ham man in it over the last couple of years.
Carrasco will be yearning to be among the goals in the group stage games against Canada, Morocco and Croatia. That is because, despite being deployed as a left-wing-back in Belgium's 3-4-3 formation, the Atletico Madrid player will be using the attacking instincts that fetched him eight goals and 13 assists in 59 international games.
