The finest full-backs that have been on display at the tournament in Brazil.
The 2014 World Cup seems to have been all about the return of the wing-backs, with Netherlands, Mexico and Costa Rica using it to particularly good effect.
So CaughtOffside thought to would be the ideal opportunity to pick out the best full-backs on display so far at the tournament in Brazil.
5. Daley Blind, Netherlands
It’s been a little inconsistent for this Ajax star, who announced himself in South America with a fine performance against Spain, before a more subdued game v Australia.
However, with the ability to also play in defensive midfield it’s little wonder that both Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur have shown interest in the versatile Blind.
